Re: Getting Residency

Yes, residency and tax residency are two entirely separate things. If you want to stay in Spain for more than 3 months then you should become a resident. If you live in Spain for more than 184 days in any one year then you are considered a tax resident. Cheers Gerry Thanks gerry, so if I take "...
