For years, the assignment of subsidiary liability to company managers was a relatively rare procedure, associated with cases of serious omissions of settlements and / or tax payments. However, for various reasons, this assignment of liability has become an increasingly common procedure in recent years, which has revealed several shortcomings in its regulation and implementation, which should be corrected as soon as possible to ensure equity, and proportionality in the procedures related to the collection action.

Farms, sheep, cheese... and taxes

  • Por Jesús Quintas

The fact of introducing an anonymous author in certain way is often used in narrative. But in this case I was highly inspired by the announcement of a minimum tax for corporations, due to such low effective rate observed in these entities in recent times, particularly in big corporations. As this note is inspired by traditional fables and parables, its aim is no other than giving a value judgment, meaning that it might not be shared neither agreed by all readers.

The fiscal and the economic-social dualization

The fiscal and the economic-social dualization

  • Por Jesús Quintas
  • 14th of September 2018

The conflict between development and redistribution is in the focus of the debates on the most appropriate economic policy. Quite often, the arguments in favor of the preeminence of one over the other are not so rooted in the analysis of the economic and social impact of the suggested measures, as on their popularity for the electors, with an increasing trend towards social duality. This social duality distorts the principle inspiring the creation of the modern state of law: charges must be approved by those on which such charges will be levied. This post poses three illustrative examples of such a situation.

After two long years of proceedings against the Madrid City Council, the Contentious Administrative Court of Madrid has finally ruled in my favour: the controllers of the Municipal Regulated Parking Service (known by its acronym SER) are required to incorporate in the administrative file when signing a fine an image of the vehicle, in the form of photography, digital filming or other technological means, that allows them to endorse the complaint made. Not meeting this legal requirement, the fine would be illegal.

Partner´s activity or company´s activity?

  • Por Irene Carrera Aguado
  • 28th of June 2018

Much has been discussed lately about the legality or lack thereof of exercising economic activity through a company as opposed to channeling the same sort of activities through a partner of the latter, as well as the changes made in the Tax Authorities’ criteria. Nevertheless, this is not an issue that is new or that has undergone significant modifications in the recent past years, it is simply a litigious issue that has not yet been resolved.

The takeover bid of ABERTIS and its administrative authorisations: the force of fate

  • Por Pablo Olivera Masso
  • 24th of January 2018

The stormy progress of the takeover bid of ABERTIS and the hotness and coldness of its participants recall those romantic novels in which an outcome with tragic tinges different to those desired by its leading characters end up imposing themselves. The leading figures of these works cannot be removed from the force of destiny because, although they do not know it, the final outcome has already been written.
