Personal Finance \ Wealth Protection

The theme of the next SIBN event on Thursday 29th September at 7pm will be Personal Finance and we have two high calibre speakers lined up to discuss a range of issues which could be very beneficial for our members and families, no matter how modest or complicated our respective financial situations.

For example, were you aware that recently introduced EU Regulations allow you to CHOOSE the law applicable to your succession? Are you fully aware of all the possible deductions you can take advantage of when filing your income taxes each year?

Our first speaker, Kathy Pilkington will be speaking to us (in English) about estate planning and the key differences between drawing up a will in Spain or Ireland from a legal perspective. To make it easy for us mere mortals to understand such weighty matters, Kathy has kindly agreed to illustrate with some recent estate planning case studies.

Our second speaker is Rocío Lorenzo and she will be talking to us (en castellano) about income & capital gains tax. She will discuss the various income tax rates in place, the deadlines you should be aware of and how your tax bill can be reduced by smart tax management and use of deductions. Rocio will also explain the double taxation agreement in place between Ireland & Spain and how your residency is a huge factor in deciding the tax rate you pay.
