    We are currently selling a villa, and have been advised that capital gains tax on the substantial profit will be 20% as non residents in Alicante

    On searching through the internet the rate seems to be 19%

    Can anyone confirm the correct rate?

    Hi Steve,

    It depends when you sold on.

    If you sold on between the 01-01-2015 and the 11-07-2015 the cgt is 20%.

    If you sold on between the 12-07-2015 and the 31-12-2015 it is 19.5% cgt.

    If you sold as from the 01-012017 it is 19% cgt.

    Thanks for that

    I thought it was 19% last year and this, which is what you are saying too.

    For some strange reason, the lawyer said to pay them based on 20%, and they would pay it on our behalf.

    Thanks again
