    On December 28 2012, the Official Gazette of the Spanish State published Act 16/2012, December 27, adopting several tax measures aimed at the consolidation of public finances and the promotion of economic activity, as a continuation of the package of measures recently adopted, in order to consolidate public finances and correct the main imbalances of the Spanish economy for a greatly-awaited emergence from the crisis.

Such entities were created in the year 2009 by means of Act 11/2009, October 26, in order to create a new instrument for investment aimed at the urban leasing real estate market.
