Researchers who set up in San Sebastian will get tax breaks of 15%
The San Sebastian innovation ecosystem will benefit from the measure implemented by Gipuzkoa Provincial Council, whereby people who live and conduct research, science and technical activities within this territory will benefit from 15% tax breaks on their tax return. The aim of this measure is to incentivise and to promote the attraction of talent, to the city of San Sebastian and also the rest of Gipuzkoa province.
To qualify for these tax breaks, applicants must also fulfil other requirements: they must not have lived in Spain for the five years prior to moving to Gipuzkoa, and they must move to this region as the result of a job contract. Jobs must be performed within Spanish territory, even when part of this work is provided abroad.
