Eduardo Gómez de Salazar Saban



Eduardo Gómez de Salazar Sabán is a partner in the Human Capital Services and Tax practices.

He has broad experience in the design and implementation of remuneration policies for listed and unlisted companies in a range of sectors and industries. Notable among the remuneration systems he has helped implement are medium- and long-term incentive plans for employees and managers payable in cash or shares, retirement-linked remuneration systems and flexible remuneration plans. Eduardo has also analyzed the implications deriving from the implementation of different types of remuneration systems from a tax and legal standpoint, as well as the requirements linked to fulfillment of the special conditions imposed on employee remuneration at entities operating in sectors subject to specific regulation (credit institutions, investment services firms, management companies, insurers, etc.), and has advised on the international assignment of workers, among other matters.

He is a regular contributor to Centro de Estudios Garrigues, teaching different subjects on the Master’s Degrees in Human Resources and Taxation, and he frequently gives classes at other centers, such as Centro de Estudios Financieros (Master’s Degree in Tax Treatment of Foreign and Assigned Workers), or Universidad a Distancia de Madrid (UDIMA), where he lectures in international tax law.
