Brits who sold homes in Spain can reclaim CGT

November 12th, 2008

There have been a lot of stories in the press recently about how Brits and other EU citizens who sold a Spanish property between June 2004 and December 2006 could be entitled to reclaim part of their Spanish capital gains tax.

Thousands of Britons who sold a property in Spain during this period could be owed a 20 per cent tax rebate from the Spanish government.

Initial estimates put the total amount to be reclaimed by British citizens at £11,000 per person, totalling an estimated £37m.

However, over the last few months hundreds of Brits have registered average reclaims of more than £19,300 each – totalling more than an estimated £86m.

It has been estimated that somewhere in the region of 4,500 British people, plus thousands more residents in other European countries, may now be entitled to reclaim their tax.
