The tax rate on the real estate purchase varies significantly in different autonomous regions of Spain. For example, when you buy property in Madrid, you pay less tax than on Ibiza Island. In some regions taxes have increased significantly in recent years, while in others they have declined. Let’s compare tax rates on the real estate purchase in different parts of Spain.
In Andalusia the tax rate ranges from 8% to 10% depending on the value of the property. In some cases the rate can be 3.5%, provided that the borrower is up to age 35, physically challenged or a member of a multi-child family. Each case is considered individually.

The Balearic Islands have a special tax treatment. If the property is going to be a permanent residence of the taxpayer and if its value is less than 200,000 euros then it is taxed at a rate of 5%. In other cases the rate increases significantly. If the property is not intended for permanent residence the tax can reach 11% depending on the purchase price.
