IBI / Rates in Spain

IBI / Rates in Spain
When you own a property in Spain you will have to pay an annual IBI bill. This is the equivalent of rates or council tax in the UK. It pays for council services in Javea and is paid directly to town hall.

IBI is annual bill that is issued by the townhall in Javea and is for a period of one year from the 1st of January. All property owners, private and commercial have an IBI bill.

When purchasing a property your legal representative will request confirmation from the seller that the IBI has been paid up to date and you will the be advised of the IBI amount on your property.

On top of the IBI bill there is also an annual bill for basura (bin collection). This is small amount again paid annually to the townhall.

There is a system where you can pay both bills by direct debit on a monthly basis.
