Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Hi Beachcomber, Unbelievable service again. Very many thanks indeed. Even the comment " with effect from 1 January 1994" gives me confidence that because my Ano efecto is 1994 then my last two returns were correct in spite of the newly released Publicacion ponencia date in May 1993. So bas...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Hi All, Back again to complete my third annual tax return. I last posted on page 42 for my 2014 form and page 35 for my 2013 form and received such helpful replies back then. I hope I can get some help again .... Firstly I go to this website http://www.catastro.meh.es/esp/ponencia_valores.asp and en...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Just a quick post of thanks to Beachcomber, Enrique and the contributors to this thread in general. A year ago to the day I was bugging this board with questions as I prepared to pay my very first 210 for non-residents. Well a year has passed and I have just revisited this thread for the first time ...

Re: Spanish Wealth Tax

Thanks Sid. Your last point is one I hadn't appreciated. So to summarise: - Reporting blocks of assets worth more than €50k is obligatory irrespective of whether these blocks plus other assets add up to more than €700k. Everybody must do this each year on form 720. - For wealth tax purposes, declari...

Re: Spanish Wealth Tax

Many thanks again Sid. So family runabouts must be included in a list of one's assets. My final question is about disclosure and then I'll stop bugging you. Does an average Spanish resident have to disclose all their assets on their annual tax return each year even if they always end up being well b...

Re: Spanish Wealth Tax

Thanks Sid, I thought so. Common sense prevails. When calculating and reporting one's assets how should motor vehicles be handled. It seems strange to have to include one's car in such considerations. Once again, some websites say that all vehicles should be disclosed, some say only high-value sport...

Spanish Wealth Tax

Hi All, I'm trying to learn how the Spanish wealth tax works for Brits considering a permanent move to Spain and I'm confused about the allowable deduction for one's house. Suppose a single person has total assets comprised of € 900,000 in cash and a Spanish property worth € 100,000. Total assets ar...

Re: Spanish Residency

Many thanks to El Cid for his comprehensive and detailed post in this thread. Bearing in mind that I am fairly new to all this and so am highly likely to be wrong but am very keen to learn, I have a couple of follow-up questions .... 1) I understood there to be two types of residency so your post sa...

Re: Community Dispute - Loss of Views

Thanks Mowser, You have hit my point precisely on the head. I am aware of these articles and as far as I am concerned they supersede any arbitrary decisions made at AGMs. Now either I am wrong (which could very well be the case as I am totally new to all this) or these screens (quite possibly both s...

Re: Community Dispute - Loss of Views

Many thanks indeed for all the replies. Some excellent points have been made. There are some complications to this situation which I didn't want to introduce as I cannot be 100% sure exactly what happened (it is my neighbours dispute and predates my ownership). However here goes my attempt to explai...

Hi Martin, Many thanks for the reply.

Community Dispute - Loss of Views

Hi All, Background: A block of 40 apartments built in 2009, five sell pre-crash, bank then repossesses the rest from the developer and sits on them until early 2013. During that time there is a barely-functioning Community with a silent majority (the bank) owning 35 apartments but totally disinteres...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Thanks Beachcomber. So it would appear that I fall just on the right side of the 1994 cut off which is a relief. Your efforts on this website are absolutely awesome and I'm so pleased I found all this information which has not only saved me money but also made me much more comfortable owning a prope...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Many thanks. All done :clap: Any tips on what I should do if they attempt to just stamp the two forms that I keep rather than do a proper validation with a string of computer generated digits and a stamp ? My bank is in a tourist area so I'm hoping they aren't confused by all this (let's face it the...

Okay, I'm just about there. I've printed out the completed form and just want to confirm a couple of final points. 1. In each of the three signature boxes am I right to put the date on top with my signature beneath and no printed handwritten name anywhere ? 2. I appreciate that it is only the form w...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Huge thanks guys. Your answers have been so clear and detailed. I think I'll keep things simple for now and steer clear of the Digital Signature. If I can get this first year correct then as Enrique says future years will just be a matter of importing the previous year's form, changing a couple of d...

Hi Beachcomber, I've a few questions about the form as I want to be sure I've got it right. Most are yes or no answers so I hope they won't take up much of your time. Once I've got it the first time I won't have to bug you in later years :D 1. Am I right in thinking that Income Type 2 in Box 2 is sp...

Many thanks to you both. For some reason I'm still struggling with my Win7 machine but I didn't have a problem at all on my Win8 machine. I need to figure that one out. On my Win8 machine I managed to fill the form out with Beachcomber's great assistance and then managed to generate a .pdf which loo...
