What are the personal income tax reductions that can be applied to your employees in 2023?

As of January 1, 2023, there have been significant changes in the reductions applicable to personal income tax (IRPF) for employees in Spain. 

The number of employees who can enjoy this reduction has increased, allowing more workers to have a lower tax burden.

If you are wondering, how does the IRPF 2023 withholding calculation work? Well, the reduction is now applied to employees with net earned income of less than 19,747.50 euros. Previously it was only applied to those with net income of less than 16,825 euros, as long as they did not receive other income of more than 6,500 euros.

In addition, the amount of the reduction has also increased, and is now €6,498 for employees with earned income up to €14,047.50.

For those with net income between 14,047.50 and 19,747.50 euros, the reduction is 6,498 euros, minus the result of multiplying by 1.14 the difference between the income from work and 14,047.5 euros per year.

This increase in the reductions also implies an increase in the earned income below which your company will not be required to calculate IRPF 2023 withholdings. 

For example, if a worker has a child and his spouse does not earn income of more than 1,500 euros, his company will no longer have to withhold tax if he receives a net salary of less than 17,894 euros. We share with you a summary of the new measures:
