Canary Islands Special Zone: What Are the Tax Advantages for Your Company?


May 12 OF 2017 from 09:00 AM to 10:35 AM

Are you familiar with the Canary Islands Special Zone? Its main draw is the lowest business tax burden anywhere in Europe: 4%, compared with the European average of 25%. In addition, the region offers full legal certainty under an agreement between the European Commission and the Spanish government.

The Canary Islands Special Zone allows companies to optimise their tax obligations in all phases of their business activity, from earning profits to distributing them. Moreover, unlike the tax systems elsewhere, legal certainty in this region is absolute, as the European authorities have guaranteed the application of the special zone until 2026 and are expected to extend the agreement beyond that date.


ESADE and PwC are pleased to invite you to an upcoming session on this topic.
