Starting with 1st of January 2016, the level of corporate taxation has been lowered, from a rate of 28% to 25%.

Company taxes in Spain 

Spanish companies are required to pay several taxes, such as the corporate tax and the value added tax. It is important to know that, starting with 2016, small companies (which are defined by a small number of employees), are imposed with a 25% corporate tax when the turnover of the company is lower than EUR 10 million. 
Newly incorporated companies are required to pay a smaller corporate tax, which was established at 15%, starting with 1st of January 2015. 
Spanish businesses are also imposed with the business and professional activities tax, which is applicable to various categories of entities carrying operations in the business of artistic fields. Businessmen should know that this tax can’t be imposed on a higher value than 15% of the taxable profits of the respective entity; our team of Spanish company formation agents can offer more details on the above mentioned taxes
