–       A+B, British, 62 years old each,  and Spanish residents,  own a Spanish property. They have 2 sons. Sons are not Spanish residents.

–       Both have made a “mirror Will” (A leaves everything to B, and vice versa), and if they died together they leave to both Sons “SON 1” and “SON 2” in equal parts.

 

EXAMPLE 1.: “A” DIES

“B” is the legal inheritor, and he/she receives the “A” part, which is the 50 % of the property, valued in 150.000 EUR. So, the base of the IHT calculation is 150.000 EUR.

So, the “B” base of the tax will be 150.000 EUR – 100.000 EUR = 50.000 EUR.

Also, Valencia region, in case of surviving spouses and descendants, reduces the rate of the IHT in 75 %.

Taking this into account, if the property was in Valencia region, “B” should be paying in inheritance taxes 1.200-1.400 EUR (approx.)

In case the house is the permanent residence, then “B” would be paying 200-500 EUR only.

So, the “B” base of the tax will be 150.000 EUR – 16.000 EUR = 134.000 EUR.

Also, Murcia region, in case of surviving spouses and descendants, reduces the rate of the IHT in 60 %.

Taking this  into account, if the property was in Murcia region, “B” should be paying in inheritance taxes 7.500 EUR (approx.).

In case the house is the permanent residence, then “B” would be paying 200-500 EUR only.

Taking this  into account, if the property was in Andalucía region, “B” should be paying “0” in inheritance taxes.

EXAMPLE 1.: “A” + “B” DIES TOGETHER IN AN ACCIDENT:

“SON 1“ and “SON 2” will be the legal inheritors, and they receive the 100 % of the house valued in 300.000 EUR. So, the base of the IHT calculation is 300.000 EUR.

“SON 1” receives the 50 % of the house, so, the value of this is 150.000 EUR, and the same for “SON 2”.

Taking this into account, if the property was in Valencia region, “SON 1” and “SON 2” would be paying in inheritance taxes 1.200-1.400 EUR (approx.) each, and “0” if they are under 21 years old.

Taking this into account, if sons were older than 21 y.o, and if the property was in Valencia region, sons should be paying in inheritance taxes 7.500 EUR (approx.) each.

Taking this into account, if the property was in Andalucía region, both sons should be paying “0” in inheritance taxes.
