The Spanish government announced on the 31st of December that the reduced VAT rate of 4% introduced in 2011 will remain applicable for all new build properties in Spain throughout 2012.
But those who purchase a new build property on the stunning Balearic island of Mallorca or Costa Blanca through leading house builder Taylor Wimpey Spain before 29th February 2012 can enjoy an extra 4% off the purchase price, in effect making the property VAT free.

Not only will buyers be feeling the benefits of the government reduced IVA (VAT) rate of 4% but they can take advantage of special offers such as our VAT free properties available until the end of February."
