What profits do you pay company tax on?
Taxable profits include the money your company or association makes from all sources of income obtained during the taxable period. This taxable income will be reduced if your taxable earnings were negative during previous taxable periods.
If your company is based in Spain, you must pay company tax on all its income from Spain and abroad. (Without prejudice to the provisions of international treaties and agreements).
If your company isn't based in Spain but has a permanent establishment there, the income obtained in Spain is not subject to corporate income tax, as it is subject to income tax of non-residents (without prejudice to the provisions of international treaties and agreements).
