One of the key decision factors for attracting international talent is the taxation system. Barcelona Global has carried out a survey among the international community living in Barcelona concluding that the tax costs are considered very high.
With the support of the most prestigious law firms in town, Barcelona Global has conducted a benchmark to analyse the existing tax proposal for attracting international talent that Barcelona has, compared to other cities, such as Madrid, New York, Zurich, Paris, London and Singapore, concluding with a series of proposals to make Barcelona more attractive from a tax point of view.
The goal of the project is to create awareness on the structural disadvantage that Barcelona has to attract talent due to its tax system and lobby among political parties and key opinion institutions in order to implement the proposals.
- Several meetings among the key decision institutions have already been celebrated: CEOE, Cercle d’Economia, Instituto de Empresa Familiar, Asociación Española de Directivos, Ministerio de Industria y Fomento del Trabajo Nacional.
- A series of meetings with the different political parties are lined up for the coming months.
