Currently, VAT (IVA) on all cultural activities is taxed at 21% (luxury).
This includes theatre tickets, entertainment values, works of art, etc.
The government has confirmed it is studying reducing the VAT on works of art to 10% in order to help Spanish artists. However, the tax break would only be on handcrafted individual works of art.
Another item that could be dropped is the cost of going to a bullfight, as part of Madrids attempt to bring the “sport” back into the main stream.
The proposed move has been decried as a tax break for the rich by opposition parties, who point out that few Spaniards in a position to buy luxury works of art, or even go to a bullfight. More common pursuits, such as cinema tickets or the cover charge at nightclubs, would remain at 21%.
The PP government is determined to have bullfighting declared a world heritage art by UNESCO. The move has been backed by a petition which has so far attracted over 600,000 signatures, including those of major politicians such as Rajoy, or leading artists and writers such as Mario Vargas or Joaquin Sabina.

Hard to believe that a civilised nation in the 21st century would have the ritual slaughter of a mammal as a national “sport!”
