Tickets for live shows to get cheaper in Spain as government lowers tax


vatTHEATRE, concert and dance tickets are set to get cheaper in 2017.

The government has announced plans to reduce IVA (VAT) on live performances from 21% to 10%.

The drop in tax income will cost the country circa €200 million a year.

The tax break will not include cinema tickets, which will retain 21% VAT until the state is ‘on track with the deficit’, said Minister of Culture Inigo Mendez de Vigo.

Spain currently has the fourth-highest rate of VAT on cultural performances in the EU.
