Managing inheritance tax

Payment and presentation of taxes in order to materialise changes of ownership.

In all inheritances, in order to register the real estate in the Land Registry and/or change the ownership of any types of financial assets, the inheritance tax must be liquidated, regardless of whether there is a fee to be paid.

In addition, when the assets to be inherited are urban property, the municipal capital gains tax must be settled with the town halls where they are located. 

Both taxes have a voluntary payment period of six months, starting from the date of death, with the possibility of extending it for a further six months.

In Gabarró Advocats -Herències- we provide advice, manage the settlement of the inheritance tax and the municipal capital gains tax, as well as the registration of the properties in the Property Registry and the change of ownership of the financial assets with the banks.
