Tax Notes is a US think tank devoted to analysing domestic fiscal policy. It also branches out to study comparative foreign tax policy.

Journalist Mr. William Hoke kindly interviews again Mr. Miguel Angel Vazquez-Gonzalez and Raymundo Larrain, from law firm Larrain Nesbitt Abogados (LNA), along with another prominent Madrid-based law firm.

Tax Notes is a portfolio of publications offered by Tax Analysts, a non-profit tax publisher. It provides comprehensive and impartial coverage of tax news, while its commentary contributes important voices to the discussion and understanding of tax policy.

Founded in 1970, Tax Analysts was created to foster free, open, and informed discussion about taxation. In 1972 Tax Analysts published Tax Notes Federal, its first weekly journal, featuring news, commentary, and analysis on federal taxation. In 1989 Tax Analysts added Tax Notes International, a weekly magazine focused on international taxation. Tax Notes State rounded out the weekly portfolio in 1991. Each magazine offers best-in-class tax commentary and analysis on the latest changes in tax law and policy, as well as on court opinions, legislative action, and revenue rulings.

How can I stay in Spain for more than 90 days? – Golden Visa

The Sunday Times, February, 21. 2021

The Sunday Times is a British newspaper whose circulation makes it the largest in the quality press market category. It is published by Times Newspapers Ltd, a subsidiary of News UK, which is in turn owned by News Corp. Times Newspapers also publishes The Times.

The Sunday Times has a circulation of just over 650,000, which exceeds that of its main rivals, including The Sunday Telegraph and The Observer, combined. While some other national newspapers moved to a tabloid format in the early 2000s, The Sunday Times has retained the larger broadsheet format and has said that it would continue to do so. As of December 2019, it sells 75% more copies than its sister paper, The Times, which is published Monday to Saturday.

The Sunday Times acquired a reputation for the strength of its investigative reporting – much of it by its Insight team – and also for its wide-ranging foreign coverage. It has a number of popular writers, columnists and commentators. Besides the main news section, it has standalone News Review, Business, Sport, Money and Appointments sections – all broadsheet. There are three magazines (The Sunday Times Magazine, Culture, and Style) and two tabloid supplements (Travel and Home).

The Sunday Times kindly quoted us again as source for one of their features: How can I stay in Spain for more than 90 days?

Modelo 720 – Tax form 720

The Olive Press is a fortnightly English language newspaper directed by Jon Clarke. Voted Spain’s number one expat newspaper and ‘second in the world’, by 27,000 people polled by UK marketing group Tesca. Also dubbed “The best English newspaper in Spain,” according to the UK’s Rough Guide. The Olive Press is the English language newspaper for Spain. Local news, in particular, from the Costa del Sol, Andalucía, Alicante, Murcia and Mallorca, plus national news from around Spain. A campaigning, community newspaper, the Olive Press launched in 2006 and represents the huge and growing expatriate community in Spain – with over 100,000 printed copies monthly, 50,000 visitors a day online we have an estimated readership of more than 500,000 people a month.

The Olive Press has as a distinctive feature from its competitors an editorial line with strong emphasis on investigative journalism, which to my mind is the purest form of journalism. It has no qualms in regularly exposing scammers and boiler rooms along the Spanish coasts.

Dissolution of Joint Property Ownership

Essential Magazine , October, 21. 2020

Essential Magazine is Marbella’s longest established glossy magazine (1999). It was founded and directed by Scottish expat Iain Blackwell who bravely hired a group of disenfranchised staff from the now defunct Absolute Marbella. Essential quickly rose through the ranks to become a staple in any high-end location on the Costa del Sol. It is Marbella’s most popular glossy. News, culture, people, and trends with all you need to know about the Spanish expatriate lifestyle and the latest business happenings. They cleverly blend decor, fashion, health & beauty, golf, travel, wine, gourmet and more... It has an audited edition of 25,000 copies distributed on a monthly basis between Gibraltar and Fuengirola.

Essential has withstood the test of time.

Personally, I have a soft spot for Essential as they (very) kindly allowed me to publish my first articles all the way back in 2005 under my name, and also a few previous ones which I ghostwrited for other lawyers at the time (ahem, read boss).

Essential kindly published our article ‘Dissolution of Joint Property Ownership’ in their October 2020 issue (number 254, page 93). Link to our article: Dissolution of Joint Property Ownership.
