The Spanish Land Registry has confirmed thatÂ a company owned byÂ MarĂa Angeles MuĂ±oz and husband Lars Broberg, Crasel Panoramica S.L., Â took out an Equity Release mortgage loanÂ with Nordea Bank S.A., basedÂ in Centro Plaza, Marbella.
The mortgage loan capital was â‚¬3,100,000 against a property -used as collateral- valued at over 4,5 million Euros.
We cannot confirm whether Lars or MarĂa Angeles are keen golfers, the prototypical victims of Jesper Hertz, Nordea Representation Office Manager, but what we do know is that the property was purchased in 2001, and the mortgage loan signed in 2010 (maturing in 2020).
We also know thatÂ Nordea Bank S.A. has accurately explained, in a promotional brochure no longer available onlineÂ since 15 days before the interim hearing in a case against them -for misleading publicity- Â (although cached by Google without Nordea IT ‘expert’ expecting it), how to go about the business of cheating the Spanish Tax Office.
These are some of the conclusions that must have convinced the Mayoress to buy this product:
Today’s investor is more likely to have amassed a fortune through personal effort.
This booklet has been devised as a basic guide for this new breed of investor and in particular for investors affected by Spanish tax and inheritance legislation.
Failure to take sufficient action of Spanish Inheritance Tax (which may be as high as 34%, or even above 80% in certain situations) in the wealth-planning process, may lead to an unexpected and financially unpleasant surprise for the heirs.
Fortunately, there are ways of mitigating both the wealth tax and the inheritance tax at the same time, one of which is to take up a mortgage.
Borrowers may take up a mortgage loan either at the time of the purchase of a Spanish property or after having owned the property for some time.

(We are informed that the Somalian Bankers’ Association has announced a job vacancy for an expert on Nordea values…Jesper can you help?!)
It is suspected that they took out the Nordea flagship ‘international wealth and tax planning’ product , the Capital Managed Plan (CPM).
The Spanish Tax Office warned against using this product to reduce Wealth Tax and more significantly, Inheritance Tax.
The question is thereby one: victims or accomplices of a tax fraud scheme?
If the former, they should report the bank to the authorities and where not, we must conclude that they are suspects of a potential tax fraud situation.
