EXCELLENT RETURN ON PROPERTY INVESTMENT
Well-connected, well-located and well-regulated – with a climate that offers every advantage for well-being and lifestyle, Gibraltar has carved a distinctive niche for itself as a global business location for investors, and for the thousands who come to live and work here.
Compared to Monaco, its Mediterranean neighbour, property represents real value and upside potential, delivering an annual 5-8% return on investment over the last 17 years, driven by local, UK and international buyers, attracted by the territory’s favourable tax regime, and positive economic outlook.
No VAT, no capital gains tax, and 10% corporation tax make the territory ideal for international business. High-net worth or Category 2 individuals benefit from:
- Low income tax
- No inheritance tax
Gibraltar’s mild, sunny climate is unchanging, but the territory’s raised financial profile has come with upgrades to infrastructure and to lifestyle. A modernised airport and three new deep water marinas, new restaurants and, for retail enthusiasts, new retail brands reflect the economy’s dynamism.
Besides scuba, yachting and even skiing a few hours away in Spain’s Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar also offers families a secure, stable environment to call home. A variety of faith- based and secular schools provide education in English from nursery to college level. Higher education is available at the University of Gibraltar or undertaken elsewhere, with Gibraltar’s students in the UK funded by the territory.
TRANSPORT AND ACCESSIBILITY
Numerous daily flights to and from the UK and elsewhere in the EU make international connections simple. The flight time to London is 2.5 hours. Malaga airport is accessible by car, as is Marbella, Sevilla, Sotogrande and Tarifa in Spain. Morroco is a short yacht or ferry crossing away.
Reasons to invest
Selling a property in Spain is something that is not extremely complicated but, like a purchase, we recommend the intervention of a lawyer who is responsible for supervising and advising throughout the process, mainly in the drafting of the contract and in the tax aspect. After the collapse of prices due to the crisis, the coastal areas and especially luxury housing has followed an upward trend that is expected to continue, especially in the Costa del Sol, where prices have risen around 10% in the last year and a 5% annual increase is foreseen in the next five years. During the upward cycle this type of property rises more rapidly and with more strength than the rest of the market, however in the downward cycle the adjustment is not so strong. It is a less volatile market whose profitability has two aspects: rent (they are in high demand and it is a scarce product) and the subsequent sale.
