Some benefits that, correctly applied, can have a very positive impact on the taxation of the posted employee.

When a n individual who has not resided in Spain in the last ten years moves his residence to our country to work, he can take advantage of the “special tax regime”. In this way, in the year of your displacement and the following five, you can pay taxes according to the rules of the Income Tax for Non-Residents instead of doing so according to those of the Personal Income Tax.
