Re: Can they tax you after death?

Yeah i know of lots of people that hacienda are questioning over 2014. Most of the ones i know of are nothing more than fishing expeditions wanting huge amounts off crown pensions and money off people that werent even tax resident that year. I guess because of the exchane of info act that came in ha...

I guess thats what...

Re: Retaining residency while outside of spain

Re: Retaining residency while outside of spain

Thanks for your info paddy. Interms of capital gains I'm thinking about the tax in spain rather than the uk side. As CGT in spain would be huge and make it impossible to sell while a spanish tax resident. And therefore impossible to buy in spain and get away from renting. We do currently rent out ou...

Retaining residency while outside of spain

The law says a perm.. resident can leave spain for upto 2 years without losing their residency.and i believe you can fill the 030 form to declare you are no longer tax resident. So I'm wandering what peoples opinion are of doing this inorder to return to the uk to sell a property and then return to ...

Re: Spanish residents getting married in UK

You have a uk income but as spanish residents you are also spanish tax residents..presuming its not a crown pension? You will be required to pay tax on it in spain along with any other world wide income. When filing a spanish tax return for spouses it will either be filed jointly or seperately inord...

Re: Residencia Interviews

If theres a deal theres a transition period of a year or so.so you can sort out getting residencia during that time. Ouch 400 euros!!! Not bad work when it costs about 12 euros each to file the form. talk about these "professionals" taking advantage of ppl. Gestor would prob do it for abou...

Re: Bringing a UK car to Andalucia

Totally understand re your pet. That has a big effect. I guess its the waiting on brexit and whether theres a deal which means whether theres a transision period. If there is then you dont need to rush re getting residencia.(you need to file for it after you have been here 90 days) which gives you a...

Re: Bringing a UK car to Andalucia

I think its 60 days to get the process started if you intend to exchange plates according to the link below. Imo its easier to sell it in the uk. Hire here for a few weeks and buy a car during that time

Re: Inheritance tax

I guess the suns gone to my head but wht is the O.P trying to do? Sign their spanish property over to their kids to avoid any possible IHT?

Or are they just wanting their % left to their kids on death instead of their spouse
