Dear 8dommet,

Welcome to the belegal forum.

CGT is 19% of the net profit. If you are non-resident in Spain and you are selling a property , the buyer of your property will have to retain the 3% of the Sales Price to pay directly to the Spanish tax office on your behalf.

That 3% paid will be used as a payment in advance and deducted from the result of your CGT.
