Andersen & Bache-Wiig AS and ABW Spain SL are two separate legal entities that come under Norwegian and Spanish law respectively, but together we can give you comprehensive assistance.
Assignments connected to Norway or Spain, whether they are about making a will, buying and selling real estate, distribution of the estate of a deceased person, starting a company in Spain etc. will require legal expertise within both Norwegian and Spanish law.
For example, distribution of the estate of a deceased person in Spain, as a rule, follows Norwegian inheritance law if the deceased had Norwegian nationality. On the other hand, distribution of inheritance according to Norwegian law will result in inheritance tax according to Spanish law.
Furthermore, buying and selling real estate in Spain doesn’t only have tax consequences in Spain, but also in Norway, if you are domiciled here. In cases connected to Norway – Spain there are many stumbling blocks.
The aim of the cooperation between Andersen & Bache-Wiig AS and ABW Spania SL is to be able to give you as our client, a comprehensive service package that covers both Norwegian and Spanish legal relations in your case, as well as offering you a route through the Spanish bureaucracy with adjustments and completion of different legal operations in Spain.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that all transactions related to transference of property that requires representation in Spain will be carried out by ABW Spania Sociedad Limitada and a Spanish Notary in accordance with Spanish law. Transactions do not follow Norwegian real estate law.
