The Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands enjoys a special economic and fiscal regime. This regime incorporates the principles and rules applicable as a consequence of the recognition of the Canary Islands as an outermost region of the European Union (Article 349 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union).
In the territory of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands in the area of indirect taxation, Value Added Tax (VAT) is not applied as in the rest of Spain. In this area, the Canary Islands apply the Canary Islands General Indirect Tax (IGIC). The general rate of the Canary Islands General Indirect Tax (IGIC) is 7%, unlike in the rest of Spain, where the rate is 21%.
The Tax on the Transport of Goods (AIEM), the Tax on Fuels Derived from Petroleum and the Tax on Tobacco Products are also indirect taxes specific to the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands, which are also different from the rest of Spain.
