Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaway Laws in Spain

In Spain, all prize promotions are submitted to the close control of the “Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego” (body of the “Ministerio de Hacienda y Administraciones Públicas”) and they are ruled by the “Ley 13/2011 de Regulación del Juego” dated 27/5/2011, that has amended and unified in a single text all the regulations on the subject of gambling and contests.

In Spain it is also necessary to observe specific tax regulations: also, prize promotions containing any elements of chance are subject to specific fiscal obligations, both at the initial stage of the promotion and after the delivery of prizes.

Organizing a prize promotion in Spain. Did you know that...

In Spain, the tax on the games of chance amounts to 10% of the value of the prize pool and, in case the value of the prize exceeds 300 Euro, the promoter has to pay the so-called «Ingreso a cuenta» on the assigned prizes.
