More than 580 professionals from a total of 820 of KPMG Abogados make up the workforce of the firm's fiscal area.
More than 595 of our 850 professionals belong to the KPMG Abogados Tax area

This large body of professionals means that we have specialists in all the taxes affecting companies and individuals. This, together with our specialisation in sectors and global network of firms in 154 countries (more than 35,000 professionals in Tax), sets us apart and allows us to render services of extremely high quality, offering substantial added value.

We cover the full spectrum of tax issues, including, Corporate Tax Services, CIT consolidated tax regime, VAT services, VAT grouping, Tax litigation and inspections, assistance in tax rulings to be filed with the Spanish General Directorate of Taxes, Tax Management services, Customs Duties (with customs inspectors on leave in the teams) Real Estate or Tax Controversy, among others. Our focus on specialisation even touches on matters not usually covered by other firms. For example, our R&D&i tax advisory team, which is a specialty in which we were pioneers in its creating.

We provide services to more than 3,600 clients, and, regularly, provide advisory services to the main IBEX-35 companies and high-profile multinational groups.
We are leading experts in direct and indirect tax planning in any transactions and matters, including mergers and company reorganizations.

We are also very strong in European tax matters, and have advised or co-advised large IBEX-35 clients in tax litigation procedures of maximum relevance, both in the European Union Court of Justice as well as general courts.

We are very well known in relation to Transfer Pricing issues, with one of the largest departments with more than 60 professionals in this area.

The Transfer Pricing (TP) practice has a strong presence both in Madrid and Barcelona, with 50 professionals (three partners) exclusively dedicated to transfer pricing matters. Twenty additional international and M&A tax professionals work alongside the TP team to provide seamless advice to our clients.

Our goal is to be recognized by our clients as responsible advisors of reference in TP and International Tax; to that effect, we adapt our services and expertise to the needs of the changing world in this new era in International Tax. Considering the post-BEPS scenario, we take the view that Transfer Pricing and International Tax are to be considered holistically to provide our clients with value-added advice that derives from the interaction between and synergies of both areas of expertise.

Montserrat Trapé leads KPMG's TP and International Tax team in Spain, after leading the Global Transfer Pricing Services practice for the EMA region until 2017. She was a former senior tax official with responsibility roles at both the OECD and the EU.
