¡Ojo! Finaliza pronto el plazo de presentación del nuevo Modelo 232 para empresas

Impuesto de Sociedades Modelo 212

La finalidad del nuevo Modelo 232 es trasladar determinada información de las operaciones vinculadas que hasta ahora se habían incluido en la declaración del Impuesto sobre Sociedades (Modelo 200). De esta manera, para los periodos impositivos iniciados a partir de 1 de enero de 2016 ya no deberá incluirse en el modelo 200 la información y documentación sobre entidades y operaciones vinculadas, sino en este modelo nuevo pendiente de aprobación.

Por tanto, esta nueva declaración informativa se presenta separadamente (Modelo 232) y en un plazo distinto al de la declaración del Impuesto sobre Sociedades. En esta se incluirá gran parte de la información que los contribuyentes ya facilitan en la documentación de Precios de Transferencia (Master-File, Local-File y Country by Country reporting), además de información sobre operaciones no sujetas a documentación.

¿Quién debe presentar el Modelo 232?

Estarán obligados a presentar y cumplimentar la nueva declaración informativa las siguientes personas jurídicas o entidades vinculadas:

1. Mantienen la obligación de informar aquellas entidades cuyas operaciones realizadas en el periodo impositivo con la misma persona o entidad vinculadas exceda los 250.000 € el importe de la contraprestación del conjunto de las operaciones, de acuerdo con el valor de mercado.

2. Mantienen la obligación de informar aquellas que realicen operaciones en el periodo impositivo con la misma persona o entidad vinculada, que sean del mismo tipo, utilicen el mismo método de valoración y siempre que el importe conjunto exceda de 100.000 € de valor de mercado.

3. Aquellas que realicen operaciones específicas (operaciones de transmisión de negocio, operaciones de transmisión de inmuebles etc.) siempre que el importe conjunto de cada tipo de operación exceda de 100.000 €, sin exigirse en este caso que utilicen el mismo método de valoración.

4. Con independencia de la contraprestación del conjunto de operaciones realizadas con la misma persona o entidad vinculada, existirá igualmente la obligación de informar respecto a aquellas operaciones de la misma naturaleza y método utilizado, cuando el importe del conjunto de las mismas sea superior al 50% de la cifra de negocios de la entidad.

5. En relación con las operaciones con personas o entidades vinculadas en caso de aplicación de la reducción de las rentas procedentes de determinados activos intangibles se ha mantenido el contenido en los términos que estaban en la declaración del Impuesto sobre Sociedades del ejercicio 2015.

6. Por último, al igual que en 2015, persiste la obligación de informar de las operaciones y situaciones relacionadas con países o territorios considerados como paraísos fiscales.

Plazo de presentación

Por lo que respecta al plazo de presentación del modelo 232, si finalmente se aprueba en los términos actuales, se podrá realizar desde el día 1 de mayo siguiente a la finalización del periodo impositivo al que se refiera la información a suministrar hasta el día 31 de mayo, existiendo un periodo específico para los periodos impositivos iniciados en el 2016, que será desde el día 1 de noviembre siguiente a la finalización del periodo impositivo al que se refiera la información a suministrar hasta el día 30 de noviembre de 2017.

Una vez más, se reafirma la voluntad de control por parte de la Administración Tributaria sobre las operaciones realizadas con entidades vinculadas. Por ello, resulta transcendental cumplir escrupulosamente con las obligaciones relativas a esta materia con anterioridad a la presentación del modelo 232, ya que sin antes haber realizado un estudio detallado de las operaciones, es prácticamente imposible completar la información del modelo de forma correcta, lo que podría conllevar a la imposición de sanciones por parte de la Administración Tributaria.

Special Income Tax (IRPF) regime for workers displaced in Spain

Vives Pons asesoría fiscal, laboral y contable en Denia

The Special Income tax Regime for workers displaced to Spanish territory has been amended considerably since its approval in 2005, this special regime is still in force and regulated by the Personal Income Tax Law. Vives Pons inform you about all details regarding this changes in the Special Income Tax.

Special Income Tax regime for workers displaced in Spain

The Special Income tax Regime for workers displaced to Spanish territory has been amended considerably since its approval in 2005, this special regime is still in force and regulated by the Personal Income Tax Law. Specifically, the conditions for its application can be found in Article 93 of the Income Tax Law.

Tax Planning in Spain and Costa Blanca with Vives Pons

Said Special Regime was designed to attract executives and qualified foreign workplaces to Spain, as well as foreign athletes who came to reside in Spain for a certain period of time. This regime has had two modifications, specifically a modification in 2010 in which it established a maximum income limit so that it could apply the special regime of 600,000 euros and later in 2015 where foreign athletes are excluded from the special regime but it remains valid and may be applicable to other professionals and workers.

Conditions for the application of the Special IRPF Regime for foreign workers displaced to Spanish territory.

The article 93 of the Personal Income Tax Law foresees that individuals who acquire their tax residence in Spain as a result of their posting to Spanish territory, may choose to pay income tax or the IRNR during the tax period in which the change of the residence is made and during the following 5 tax periods, provided that the following conditions are met:

  • They have not been residents in Spain during the 10 years prior to their new displacement to Spanish territory.
  • The displacement to Spanish territory occurs as a result of an employment contract or when a job letter exists. One of the novelties introduced in 2015 is that it is not necessary for the employer to be Spanish, in other words, a foreign company may order to its worker to move to Spain, keeping the employment relationship in force.
  • For the application of the regime, the displaced worker must exercise his right of option by providing a communication form (form 149) as well as supplementary documentation that proves compliance with the conditions within six months from the start of the work activity for which the displacement took place.

Special IRPF Regime content for workers displaced to Spanish territory.

As a result of the application of the Special Regime for displaced workers, the first € 600,000 obtained by the worker or administrator due to employment income are taxed at a rate of 24% and above that amount at a rate of 45%.

Taxation is applied to all employment incomes, regardless of whether they are obtained abroad, which could lead to situations of double taxation on this type of incomes, which should be studied in a case-by-case basis.

Likewise, the capital returns obtained in Spain (dividends, interest, capital gains) will be taxed at 19% for the first € 6,000, between € 6,000 and € 50,000 at 21% and at 23% above € 50,000.

 

Vives Pons asesoría fiscal informa: modificaciones en el IRPF para trabajadores extranjeros en España

El IRPF para trabajadores desplazados a territorio español, es decir, para trabajadores extranjeros en España, ha sufrido importantes modificaciones. Vives Pons, tu asesoría fiscal en Denia y Costa Blanca, te informa.

 

Vives Pons asesoría fiscal, laboral y contable en Denia

Modificaciones en el Impuesto de la Renta (IRPF) para extranjeros en España

El Régimen especial de IRPF para trabajadores desplazados a territorio español ha sufrido importantes modificaciones desde su aprobación en 2005, dicho régimen especial sigue vigente y regulado por la Ley del IRPF (Impuesto de la Renta de las personas físicas). En concreto, las condiciones para su aplicación se encuentran en el artículo 93 de la Ley de IRPF.

Dicho Régimen Especial estaba pensado para atraer a España directivos y puestos de trabajo cualificados extranjeros, así como, deportistas extranjeros que venían a residir a España por un periodo de tiempo determinado.

Este régimen ha tenido dos modificaciones, concretamente una modificación en el año 2010 en la que establecía un límite máximo de rentas para que pudiese aplicar el régimen especial de 600.000 euros y posteriormente en el año 2015 donde excluyen a los deportistas extranjeros del régimen especial pero sigue vigente y puede ser aplicable al resto de profesionales y trabajadores.

Condiciones para aplicar el régimen especial de IRPF para trabajadores extranjeros en España

El artículo 93 de la Ley de IRPF previene que las personas físicas que adquieran su residencia fiscal en España como consecuencia de su desplazamiento a territorio español, podrán optar por tributar por el IRPF o por el IRNR durante el período impositivo en que se efectúe el cambio de residencia y durante los 5 períodos impositivos siguientes, siempre que se cumplan las siguientes condiciones:

  • Que no hayan sido residentes en España durante los 10 años anteriores a su nuevo desplazamiento a territorio español.
  • Que el desplazamiento a territorio español se produzca como consecuencia de un contrato de trabajo o bien cuando exista carta de trabajo. Una de las novedades introducidas en 2015 es que no es necesario que el empleador sea español, es decir, que una empresa extranjera puede ordenar que su trabajador se desplace a España, manteniendo vigente la relación laboral.
  • Para la aplicación el régimen, el trabajado desplazado deberá ejercitar su derecho de opción aportando un formulario de comunicación (modelo 149) junto con la documentación complementaria que acredite el cumplimiento de las condiciones dentro de los seis meses desde que se produjo el inicio de la actividad laboral por la que tuvo lugar el desplazamiento.

Contenido del régimen especial de IRPF para trabajadores extranjeros en España

Como consecuencia de la aplicación del Régimen especial para trabajadores desplazados, los primeros 600.000 uuros obtenidos por el trabajador o administrador por rendimiento del trabajo tributan a un tipo de 24% y a partir de dicha cantidad a un tipo de 45%.

Tax Planning in Spain and Costa Blanca with Vives Pons

La tributación se aplica sobre todos los rendimientos de trabajo obtenidos, con independencia de si los mismos se obtienen en el extranjero, lo que podría dar lugar a situaciones de doble tributación sobre este tipo de rentas, que deben ser estudiadas de manera particular en cada caso.Asimismo, los rendimientos de capital obtenidos en España (dividendos, intereses, ganancias de capital) tributarán al 19% para los primeros 6.000 €, entre 6.000 € y 50.000 € al 21% y al 23% a partir de 50.000 €.

A modo de ejemplo, una de las ventajas que el régimen provoca, por ejemplo, es que, los rendimientos por cesión a terceros de capitales propios obtenidos en otro Estado de la UE por el trabajador desplazado a España, no tributen ni en el país de la fuente por tratarse de un contribuyente residente en España, ni en el país de residencia -España- por aplicarse el régimen especial, en el que sólo se tributa por las rentas del trabajo (mundiales) y por las rentas de capital obtenidas en España.

Los contribuyentes del IRPF que opten por aplicar este régimen especial pueden solicitar el certificado de residencia fiscal en España.

Obligación tributaria para trabajadores extranjeros que se acojan al régimen especial de IRPF

El 21 de diciembre de 2015 se aprobó un nuevo modelo de declaración del IRPF del régimen especial de trabajadores desplazados a territorio español (modelo 151) adaptado al contenido del régimen vigente desde 1/1/2015.
La presentación de este nuevo modelo 151 se realizará solo por Internet, con certificado electrónico o Cl@ve PIN.

El nuevo régimen establecido desde 1/1/2015 para los trabajadores desplazados a territorio español establece la opción de tributar por el Impuesto sobre la Renta de no Residentes, con ciertas reglas especiales, manteniendo la condición de contribuyentes por el Impuesto sobre la Renta de las Personas Físicas durante el período impositivo en que se efectúe el cambio de residencia y durante los cinco períodos impositivos siguientes. Una vez pasado este período, si el trabajador continúa en España debe tributar por el IRPF, como cualquier otro contribuyente normal.

¿Qué características debe tener un buen contable?

The best accountant in Spain

Por nuestra experiencia diaria con empresas, pymes y autónomos, en Vives Pons & Asociados sabemos que el asesoramiento contable es uno de los trabajos más demandados en el mercado laboral. Todas las empresas, sin importar su actividad económica, necesitan un contable en mayor o menor medida que les lleve sus números al día y les permita cumplir con sus obligaciones fiscales, legales y financieras.

Además de su labor en la administración económica de la empresa, un contable ha de estar dotado de los conocimientos y competencias necesarias para poder llevar a cabo su trabajo. Más allá de esto, el trabajo de contable se tiene contextualizado como mecánico y aburrido. Podéis hacer la prueba de preguntar a alguien ajeno a la profesión sobre las tareas que este desarrolla. Seguramente te afirme que es un ser que se tira todo el día haciendo numeritos y pagando impuestos.

Pero nada más lejos de la realidad dentro de las oficinas modernas. Las tecnologías, los continuos cambios fiscales y los nuevos modelos de negocios hacen que el contable del Siglo XXI sea alguien con cualidades muy diferentes.

Beneficios que aporta un buen contable a la empresa

Llevar un registro contable siempre es importante. Es cierto, sobre todo en pequeñas empresas o proyectos, que tal vez no se pueda tener en plantilla a un profesional de estas características, pero los servicios externalizados nos permiten cubrir esta necesidad abaratando costes.

A la hora de gestionar una compañía, es importante comprender que las cuentas deben ser transparentes y estar al día. Algo que se intensifica cuando intervienen diferentes socios en una misma empresa. De esta forma, llevar un control exhaustivo de todo lo que sucede ayudaría a preservar la confianza y mejorar las relaciones entre los socios, ver la viabilidad económica y tener una base para futuras decisiones.

Un buen contable puede convertirse en el mejor consejero de tu negocio

Contar con un experto contable dentro de la empresa nos debe garantizar cierta tranquilidad a nivel legal y financiero, ya que no siempre el empresario está al día o conoce a la perfección la legislación que afecta o puede afectar al negocio. No solo eso, también nos ayuda a prevenir situaciones financieras delicadas, reducir tensiones de tesorería o a sacar partido a la liquidez que tiene una empresa cuando exista.

Igualmente, no solo llevará el registro de los libros contables, sino que también se asegurará de que sus datos son correctos. Algo que suele suceder en los negocios de menor tamaño es que el dueño suele ser polivalente y entre sus tareas también está ocuparse de la contabilidad. Esto puede ser viable cuando las tareas de contabilidad son sencillas pero no cuando están comienzan a volverse más complejas. Sea como fuere, con un buen contable evitarás que estos errores, a la larga, puedan costarte caros:

  • Perder o tirar a la basura recibos en vez de archivarlos.
  • No registrar todos los gastos.
  • No llevar registro de la caja.
  • Errores en el balance de activo/pasivo de la empresa.
  • Pasar por alto alguna puntualización de contratos y documentos legales.

En Vives Pons & Asociados somos expertos en la asesoría fiscal, laboral y contable para autónomos, pymes y empresas.

Nos encontrarás en el centro de Dénia, en la calle Pare Pere (muy cerca de la Glorieta).

How to keep on top of cash flow: 5 essential tips, by Vives Pons

Tips  to cash flow and set up a business in Spain and Costa Blanca

A drop in orders, a shortage of work, rising costs, slowing demand, weak margins. All these things can damage a small business. But ultimately, the only reason to board up the door and bring in the receivers is a lack of cash.

Setting up a Business in Spain and Costa Blanca

You started a business because you’re good at what you do. Many small businesses are, yet so many still fail. Tragically, many of them had plenty of customers and a strong order book, but ran out of cash, either because invoices were paid too late or the bank wouldn’t extend credit. To avoid that happening to you, follow these five tips for keeping on top of king cash.

Plan your cash flow

The worst thing for a business to do is believe it has no control over cash flow. Don’t leave it all to your customers. You can influence what jobs you take, how much you pay for materials and services and when you are paid. But you need to forecast and plan, and you need to learn to pull the right levers.

Do you know how much cash the business will have in a week, a month, three months or a year? If not, then you don’t know what sort of jobs are best to take. A big job might be more profitable – great if you have plenty of cash in the bank. But if you need cash in the next eight weeks and the job is four months long, you might be storing up trouble.

In truth, working with reliable, quick-paying clients can be better than working on big jobs, at least initially. If it means slightly slimmer profits, well, it’s better than not being able to pay yourself (or worse).

Keep bookkeeping up to date every day

Bookkeeping is a chore so easily put off, particularly if you’re the one doing most of the actual work. But if you don’t keep the books up to date, then cash flow will come back to bite you. You’ll kick yourself if you could have done something about a cash flow problem if only you’d known earlier.

Fortunately, there are tools available that take the grind out of bookkeeping and help you keep on top of it every day. Online bookkeeping software can be accessed from anywhere, so you can check and update it on your smartphone or tablet while out and about. Modern technologies mean there’s no reason to get behind with the books.

Invoice on time, get paid on time

Keeping your books up to date is the first step in making sure you get paid on time. The next is making sure you invoice as soon as you can. Software tools are now available to help small businesses automate much of the invoicing process, picking up data from purchase orders and drawing up customer details from your records.

If you’ve invoiced quickly, you can let your customers know when you expect to be paid. Some customers will run longer-than-standard payment terms, say 60 days. But there’s no reason not to remind them as soon as the invoice is overdue – or even just before it falls due. And try to persuade customers to pay by bank transfer rather than check, as it will speed up the process.

Keep the bank happy

Your bank accounts can be integrated with online bookkeeping software, making it easier to make quick cash flow decisions. Accidentally going over your overdraft limit can be a painful mistake. Being proactive will help you keep your bank onside and gain access to finances when you most need it.

Explore alternative financing options

If you know you’re going to need cash in the short term and renegotiating with the bank is out of the question, there are other forms of finance which are preferable to damaging your credit rating. Ask your customers if they’re interested in early payment discounts, as they might be looking to save money. Some clients will also offer invoice finance though a third party, while online markets will buy invoices from you and offer rapid access to cash, at a price.

Cash is the most important thing for any small business owner to master. Get it under control using these tips, and your business will be in a superb position to flourish and grow.

No matter what kind of work you do, if you want to succeed running small business you need to master the books.

Vives Pons offers you the best software for small businesses in the market. SageOne:

  • Easy to use, you don’t need to known accountancy.

The One Thing That Will Make or Break Any Small Business, by Vives Pons & Asociados

growth-business in Spain and Costa Blanca

You founded your business on a great idea, and you execute on that idea superbly.
But to stay successful, there’s one more critical thing you need to do: get on top of cash flow before it gets on top of you. It’s the reason companies with perfectly respectable paper profits can plunge into bankruptcy. Why?

More customers = more complexity

The quick answer is that running a business, even a very profitable one, costs money. You might be seeing growing sales and happy customers, but you’re also spending on materials, staff and premises while servicing finance.

When businesses grow, they quickly become more complex. This complexity makes it more difficult to see the cash position now, and forecast what it will be in weeks’ and months’ time.
When you have just a few customers, keeping on top of their payments is fairly easy. You can do it in your head. But if you have hundreds of customers, who’s checking when they will all pay? Do you know if they’re paying late? Is anyone chasing them for payment?

Manage spend wisely

The same applies to spending. Understanding cash flow is critical when working with suppliers. You need to understand how many suppliers you have, what you pay them, and when.
For example, do you spend more with a supplier to get a high-volume discount on materials, or keep hold of cash and buy in small amounts at a higher price? It’s impossible to make these decisions without knowing and forecasting your cash position.

Timing capital investments

Meanwhile, growing businesses require more capital. At some point, if you’re ambitious, you’ll need to make some big decisions. When do you need larger premises? When do you need a bigger IT system? If you’re making things, do you need more machinery? Do you need to hire more people?
You’ll need to make these investments if you are to keep your customers (and your employees) happy. Crucially, you’ll need to do so before they pay you. And it would be suicidal to do so if you don’t understand the cash position of the business, now and in the future. Remember you’ll also need to keep the business running day to day, spending on bills, taxes, small items, travel and rent.

Don’t lose sight of cash

Small business owners are often very focused on gaining new customers and satisfying the ones they have.
The problem is, if no-one is focusing on liquidity, things can go wrong very quickly. If two customers fail to pay substantial invoices in the same week you settle a big supplier bill, you have to hope the bank will extend your finance. If it doesn’t, you could be in trouble.
It’s worth repeating that this frequently happens in otherwise successful, growing businesses – and often causes their downfall.

Get a cashflow forecast in place

Accountants will tell you that cash flow problems rarely occur out of the blue. The chances are the warning signs have been there for a while, but no-one has noticed them.
The vital question is: do you know what your cash position will be in six months’ time? If not, you may struggle to cope when things go wrong. If you can forecast that far forward, and it doesn’t look good, you still have time to put in place a strategy to make it through the difficult growth period.

And it’s important not to confuse the bank balance with the cash book. Managing the business from the bank balance is like driving a car by looking only in the rear view mirror. You’re seeing what’s gone past, not the pothole you’re about to hit. A good cashbook will lead to better forecasting.

The right tools can help

The tools for efficient bookkeeping are getting easier to use and are available, via the cloud, on a pay-as-you-go basis. Conquering cash flow won’t hold you back; it will be a catalyst for driving the business forward. Doing it proactively is more efficient than firefighting, and gives you more time to spend with customers and keep the business growing.
