The Spanish tax authorities are aware of this avoidance. If a property is held by a Spanish company and that company has no other activity, the authorites will charge tax based on a notional rent that the company should have been charging for the property to give a return to shareholders. They can do the same if there is a car in the garage also registered to the company. One way or another, they will ‘get’ you. Check with a responsible lawyer or accountant who will give advice and not just take your money to do what you ask and not answer the questions you don’t know to ask.
