Resident in Spain

 

DO I NEED TO BE A RESIDENT?

There are certain Tax advantages in being Resident in Spain, as far as property ownership is concerned, though the ultimate decision is yours, as I do not wish to know your private financial situation.

Under existing legislation, if you spend more than 6 months of the year in Spain you are required to apply for a Resident´s permit (Tarjeta de Residencia).

The ownership of property is an important factor for consideration of whether you should be a Resident or not, even discounting the fact that you are legally bound to apply, as above, whether you own property or not. If the Tax Authorities consider that your centre of economic activity is in Spain, then that is where your principal residence is, unless you can prove otherwise.

Just remember that Spain taxes ALL your world-wide assets.
