Tax agency collects more taxes in Malaga than before the pandemic. For the first half of the year the Spanish tax agency have managed to collect 5 per cent more tax revenue than was collected in 2019.
Businesses in 2019 were severely hit by the coronavirus pandemic, but since coronavirus restrictions have been lifted the Spanish job market has reactivated and tourists have returned.
In Malaga the collection of taxes has now managed to reach pre-pandemic levels. Revenue levels from income tax, corporation tax, IVA sales tax, excise duty on fuel, tobacco, electricity and alcohol have managed to beat those seen before the pandemic began.
In fact, the government have managed to close the first half of the year with a tax increase of 5 per cent more revenue than that seen in 2019. This is a staggering 10 per cent higher than that of 2020.
So far this year workers in Malaga have contributed over 440 million euros. This figure has grown by around 9 per cent on the figure seen in 2019. Tax on Non-Resident Income has also bought in over 45 million euros too.
Jose Maria Mollinedo, the general secretary of the Union of Finance Technicians (Gestha) has commented that: “Not everything is economic recovery, though”.
He added: “the collections of the deferred tax obligations of companies and freelancers helped boost the figures”.
Companies in the Malaga province have contributed over 67 million euros so far this year in Corporation tax.
