Municipal Capital Gains Tax is a tax levied on the increase in value of urban land at the time of transfer. As it is a municipal tax, it depends on the Council of the municipality in which the property changing hands is located, in this case, the Council of Teulada.

Following Royal Decree-Law 26/2021, of 8 November, approved by the Cabinet of Ministers, various new features have been introduced with regard to this tax, including the possibility of choosing between two different ways of calculating the Taxable Base.

Below we will outline all the new features introduced by the new regulations and explain each of the available methods to calculate the Municipal Capital Gains Tax in Teulada-Moraira: Objective Method and Actual Capital Gains Method.

Capital Gains Tax in Teulada-Moraira: Objective Method

One of the systems available for calculating the Municipal Capital Gains Tax in Teulada-Moraira is the Objective Method, a process which takes into account the years that have passed between the acquisition of the property and the time of its transfer. To do this, we will have to follow the following steps:

1st: Calculate the Taxable Base

First, we will take the cadastral value of the property’s land and apply the corresponding multiplication coefficient depending on the number of years that we have been in possession of the property, in accordance with the following table:

multiplication coefficient

2nd: Apply the Tax Rate

We will then apply the Tax Rate established by the Town Council of Teulada, 30% in this case, to the Taxable Base.

Case Study

Once we have obtained the Taxable Base (7,800 euros), we will apply the Tax Rate established by the Town Council of Teulada (30%), obtaining a final Amount of Tax to be paid of 2,340 euros.

Capital Gains Tax in Teulada-Moraira: Actual Capital Gains

The other method available for calculating the Municipal Capital Gains Tax in Teulada-Moraira is the Actual Capital Gains Method, a method which takes into account the Capital Gain obtained on the sale of the property regardless of the number of years the seller has owned it. To calculate the rate using this method we will have to apply the following steps:

1st: Calculate the Capital Gain

First, we will calculate the Capital Gain by subtracting the amount we bought the property for from the sale price.

2nd: Multiply by the % that represents the cadastral value of the land

We will then multiply the Capital Gain obtained by the percentage that the cadastral value of the land represents of the total cadastral value of the property to obtain the Taxable Base.

3rd: Apply the Tax Rate

Once we have obtained the Taxable Base, all that remains is to apply the Tax Rate corresponding to the Council of the municipality in which the property is located.

Case Study

Continuing with the same example that we used in the case study of the Objective Method, let’s imagine that the house we want to sell has a cadastral value of 100,000 euros, we bought it for 110,000 euros and now we want to sell it for 140,000 euros.

First, we will have to subtract the value for which we acquired the property (110,000 euros) from the value of the transfer (140,000 euros), thus obtaining the Capital Gain of the operation, in this case, 30,000 euros. We will then multiply the Capital Gain obtained (30,000 euros) by the percentage that the cadastral value of the land represents of the total cadastral value of the property (65%) to obtain the Taxable Base, i.e. 19,500 euros.

Now all that remains is to apply the Tax Rate established by the Town Council of Moraira (30%) to the Taxable Base obtained (19,500 euros) to give as a result the final Amount of Tax to be paid, in this case, 5,850 euros.

Important*

In the case studies described in this article, the Objective Method would be the most advantageous method for the taxpayer, however, this is not always the case. Everything will depend on the number of years that have passed between the acquisition of the property and its transfer, and the Capital Gain obtained from the operation.

Other new features introduced by the Royal Decree

In addition to the two methods that the taxpayer can choose between to calculate the tax, the 2021 Royal Decree also introduced various other new features:

  • Only transactions in which there is an actual capital gain, i.e. where the transfer value is higher than the acquisition value, are subject to tax liquidation.
  • Property transfers that take place in less than one year will be taxable, unlike under the previous regulations.
