Official State Bulletin on Monday, The cabinet today decided to delay the increase until September 1. Part of the reason for the delay is so as not to affect this summer’s tourist season.

It has now been announced that some items are changing IVA rates; glasses and contact lenses, cinema, hairdresser, discotheques, theatre, health products, funerals and cleaning services will move from 8% to 21%.


In 2013 the tax deduction for your main dwelling will be cancelled, and in addition the special type of IVA which is charged on house sales will go from 4% to 10%.

So there you have it the few bob you have made on the recent exchange rate will be gobbled up by the taxman.  Cry

The tax changes are (Taken from Spanish press)

The 4% rate – to be kept at 4%
This is applied to items considered to be of basic need. It includes basic bread, frozen dough, eggs, cheese, milk, beans and fruit and vegetables.
Books, magazines and newspapers.

Foodstuffs in general, with the exception of those in the 4% band, soft drinks.
Animals destined for human consumption or breeding.
Items used in agricultural, farming and forestry activities, such as seeds and fertilisers.
Contact lenses and glasses.
Disabled lifts and items for the diagnosis of illnesses.
Health assistance services, social services, and dental work.
Imported artworks and antiques.
Hairdressing.
The handing over of housing, including garages and annexes.
House construction (between promoter and contractor).
The special type of IVA charged on house sales now goes to 10%.
Services supplied by artists and technicians.
Sports, cultural and recreational services, exhibitions and fairs.
Hotel and restaurants, cleaning of streets and public gardens.

Transport of passengers and motorway tolls.
