FindMe in Gran Canaria


With a geographically strategic location, the island of Gran Canaria has become a magnet for many very different business ventures. While a Swedish company will soon launch zero gravity trips to the space from the island, scientist from all over the world are scrutinizing the deep sea searching for the magical chemistry isolated in algae. Due to its geographical location between Europe, Africa and America, the island has also become a strategic meeting point, especially for those with business in the oil rich area of West Africa. The island offers a Special Tax and Economic Regime (REF) in the frameworks of the European Union, with the lowest corporate tax of Europe at 4% and reduced Indirect Tax (IGIC) to 7%. Investments can also benefit from 90% of profit exempted to taxation within the Investment Reserve (RIC) and from the Special Economic Zone (ZEC).

But the island is specially known for its weather, mild all year round, and its long sandy beaches that attract almost four million tourists per year. Even Hollywood has set an eye on the island. The combination of geography, location and economic incentives with 38% tax deduction against 18% in the rest of Spain make Gran Canaria a very attractive movie set. “Wild Oats”, the latest movie of Demi Moore, was recently filmed there.
