This Spanish City Is Getting Rave Reviews From Expats 🧳
In the latest 2023 Expat Insider report by InterNations, Spanish cities have emerged as the most favored destinations for expatriates. Malaga, Alicante, and Valencia, all in Spain, top the list as the best cities for expats, excelling in areas like social, financial, and work-life balance.
Malaga Leads as the Top Expat City: Malaga, a vibrant port city in southern Spain, ranks first in the list, widely appreciated by expats for its friendly atmosphere, excellent social life, and balanced work-life environment. The city stands out for its welcoming community, making it particularly easy for newcomers to settle in and build social connections.
Other Spanish Cities Excel in Quality of Life: Alicante and Valencia follow closely, offering low living costs, rich travel opportunities, and a robust cultural scene. Madrid and Barcelona, though ranked lower, still feature in the top 15, with expats praising their nightlife, culture, and healthcare system. Spain's overall high life expectancy and status as one of the healthiest countries in the EU further enhance its appeal to expats.
Spain’s Digital Nomad Visa Attracts Remote Workers: Spain's introduction of a digital nomad visa, aimed at "international teleworkers," simplifies the process for foreigners wishing to work remotely from these locations. This initiative, coupled with the country's favorable living conditions, positions Spain as a top destination for expats in various fields.

Bend Those Taxes Like Beckham in Spain ⚽️
Spain's Beckham Law, introduced in 2004 and initially crafted to attract star footballer David Beckham, has evolved into a significant tax incentive for foreign professionals. While professional athletes are now excluded, the law provides substantial tax benefits for other qualified foreign workers relocating to Spain.
Key Tax Advantages of the Beckham Law: The Beckham Law offers a fixed income tax rate of 24% on earnings up to €600,000 for non-residents, contrasting with Spain's standard progressive tax rate which can reach 50%. Importantly, income generated outside of Spain is exempt from this tax. Additionally, capital gains tax only applies to assets located in Spain, with foreign assets being tax-free. The wealth tax is favorable too, levied only on Spanish properties and at rates varying from 0.2% to 2.5% based on property value.
Eligibility Criteria for Applicants: To qualify for the Beckham Law, applicants must not have been Spanish residents in the previous ten years, must move to Spain for work, and be employed by a Spanish company. Additionally, the application must be submitted within six months of employment. This law also opens doors for digital nomads and remote workers, offering them a residence permit and the opportunity to benefit from these tax advantages.
Recent Updates and Application Process: Recent changes to the law include a reduction in the non-residence period requirement from ten years to five, and the expansion of eligibility to some remote workers, entrepreneurs, and freelancers. The application process, which can be completed online, typically takes one to two months. However, certain groups, such as freelance workers, professional athletes, and directors holding significant shares in passive holding companies, are excluded
