The Canary Islands are a Spanish territory but they also are an Autonomous Community with a considerable legislative autonomy due to insularity and great distance from the Spanish mainland.
Under this autonomy, the Isles benefit from a facilitated tax regime for autonomous and dependent employment as well as for private investments. Furthermore, there is no VAT, but a similar tax with a single rate of 7%.
The Isles enjoy a great climate, mild with spring-like temperatures all over the year. Temperatures range from a minimum of 18°C (64.4 F) in February to a maximum of 35°C (95 F) in July / August. The 3,000 sunshine hours per year make Canary Islands the European Area with most hours of sunlight, with almost non-existent rainfalls.
The Canary archipelago is formed by seven major islands, all of them are famous for their climate of Eternal Spring and for this reason they are considered the third touristic destination in the world.
The fresh trade winds and the draught of Canary Islands temper with their cold air the temperature, and, as a result, summer is not as hot as it might be expected for being near the Tropic of Cancer.
The result of this combination is a microclimate, with water temperature that ranges from 18° to 23°C (64-73 F) all through the year. The external climate varies among the different islands, but rarely drops below 18°C (64 F) in winter or rises above 35°C (95 F) in summer.
