The Spanish economy is closing 2016 with a growth rate of 3.2% GDP, and it is one of the most dynamic economies among the Euro area countries in terms of economic growth, job creation and boost in exports . Thanks to the strength it is currently showing, we estimate an economic growth rate for the next year of 2.7% GDP. However, in a less favorable international context it is necessary to move ahead with reforms and not to reverse those implemented in the last years.

Reduction of the public deficit, both in Spain and in other countries is geared towards increased tax collection and coincides with various opinion campaigns on low corporate taxation, both from global institutions and political parties.

Manuel de Vicente-Tutor and Irene Carrera, managing partner and manager of EQUIPO ECONOMICO, respectively, call attention to the importance of the Constitutional Court ruling last 23 June 2016. This concludes a highly significant controversy regarding taxation of options on shares in the scope of Income Tax and rules out the technique used at times by the legislator that attempts to resolve conflicts by means of changes to the law that aim to resolve not only future legal situations but also past situations and those pending resolutions in the courts. The ruling is important beyond the specific case and should be analyzed in detail given the possible extension of its effects, for example, to the non-applicability of the obligation to declare assets abroad.
