On July 22nd, the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg organized a webinar on “Taxation in Spain in times of COVID-19: Opportunities and challenges”, in collaboration with its member law firm Garrigues. The webinar was held within the framework of the Spanish Financial Forum, a committee of the Chamber focused on the financial sector in Luxembourg.
During the webinar, the speakers, Pablo Torrano, Albert Collado and Nuria Cabré, three partners from the tax department of Garrigues in Barcelona, presented the different options through which the losses generated by the crisis derived from the Covid-19 could be compensated for tax purposes, as well as the operations that could be considered taking advantage of the drop in asset valuation.
On the other hand, the tax changes implemented in Spain in the recent months were discussed, as well as the prospects of possible new measures that could be adopted in the future.
Finally, a round of questions and answers was held in which the participants were able to raise their doubts with the speakers. Thus, various topics were discussed, such as the competitiveness of the Spanish tax system when it comes to attracting new residents or the range of possibilities that arise when making a donation.
From the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg, we thank the speakers for their presentation, and our partner company Garrigues for its collaboration in organising the webinar.
