Spain Business Brief - Friday June 3 2015
Posted in: Business Brief - Jul 4, 2015 - 8:31:44 AM

The Third Section of the Penal Hall, ruled on Friday, the admission of an appeal presented by Union, Progress and Democracy, consider the closure made on May 5 was ‘precipitated’.
In the opaque cards case, 12 previous directors spent 3.4 million € ‘without contractual support’ and the bank failed to pay the tax man the normal retention which would have happened if things were above board.

The Government has denied any electoral interest in bringing forward the income tax cut, which was approved on July 10. Economy Minister, Luis de Guindos said the earlier tax cut would not affect the public deficit which still has a year end target of 4.2%.
Technicians at the Treasury have described the implantation of the early cut in income tax as ‘very difficult’. They also warn the earlier payment could affect the public deficit year end target of 4.2% because it would result in next year’s figures of retention being out of phase of liquidation.
A further complication arises in the regions as the Treasury will have to agree with each one in order to save the taxpayer spending 1.5 billion €.

The Police have finalised their investigation into the Sevilla training course scam.
