Newsletter 186 BNFIX PICH
It seems like only yesterday that we were opening 2023… and we already have a new Christmas just around the corner. We are closing a turbulent year on an international scale, with wars, climate crisis and drought as the main headlines of a news that worries us and affects us at all levels.
In spite of everything, the forecasts for our economy continue to show positive signs for 2024, since according to the latest report of the Financial Observatory of the General Council of Economists, which we enclose in this last newsletter of the year, the Spanish Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will grow by 1.7 percent, below the 2.4 percent forecast for the current year.
The newsletter also includes an eight-page report prepared by Carolina Mateo and Alba Pich in which they address different issues that taxpayers (both individuals and legal entities) should take into account before making the last tax decisions of the year. The video of the Coffee with BNFIX PICH and DFK International on November 22nd on new developments in restructuring and insolvency and some events in which our professionals will participate in the coming days complete the publication.
We do not want to end these lines without appealing to the true “Christmas spirit” that should permeate us all these days (and all year long) and invite you to look around you for that good cause to which you can contribute your small grain of sand.
Merry Christmas to all and prosperous 2024!
