I am looking to purchase a holiday home for myself and family on the outskirts of Torrevieja. The price of the property is 80,000 euro. I do not intend to live, work or claim any benefits from Spain. I will make a Spanish will in order that my two daughters inherit the property on my death. Will they be liable for Inheritance Tax, if so what percentage of the sale and would I be liable for capital gains if sold above the 80,000 euro price? Thank you in anticipation.

Hi David,

Please could you help with the following questions regarding Modelo 30:

I moved to Spain in February 2017 and started working at a language school. The school deducts IRPF etc from my monthly pay. Does this mean that I am already registered with the authorities for tax or do I still have to submit a Modelo 30 (as I have read in various forums)? If so, is this something that has to be done now or can it be done after the end of the tax year prior to completing a tax return? Also, if we were to purchase a property in Spain, would we need to have completed a Modelo 30 prior to this to be ale to pay the relevant taxes?

Many thanks

We are pensioner residents of Galicia for 7 years, we rent out our self contained annexe for a few weeks each year, making sure the income is less than 1000€ for each of us so as not getting into the tax situation. However is this 1000€ the actual gross amount, or is it after deducting basic running costs?
Thank you.

Hi David,

I am studying Spanish in Spain from July 26th, 2017 to June 14th, 2018, so I have a long-stay visa and will need to get a student resident permit. However, I will still be working remotely for my US based company, making about $60k USD. Am I considered a fiscal resident for either 2017 or 2018? I don't intend to stay indefinitely, just this year, and technically I am will not be a resident longer than 183 days in either year ... I just can't tell if I am understanding the rules correctly and/or if there are different rules for students. Any insight would be very helpful! Thanks!

Hi David
I am a pensioner, resident in Spain with previous employment in the UK and final employment in Spain. My total state pension has been calculated on a proportionate basis and I receive a part from the UK and part of Spain (39%). My first question is do I have to enter the amount from Britain on the tax return or do I not enter it because it is a state pension and I have a letter from the Spanish Authorities confirming the amount? I also undertook some part time invigilation work for exams in a local international school during 2016 on which I was taxed but not contracted. I did not submit a VAT invoice. They simply calculate the number of hours and deducted 15% tax. It features in my tax return and I am asked to say whether it is rendimiento de Trabajo or rendimiento de actividades economicas. Can you advise me please as it seems to me to fall into the category of ad hoc professional services and therefore the latter? Please let me know if you need any further information. Thank you

My husband is a resident of Spain and worked for a company paying his taxes between 2006 to 2008 when he was made redundant. I returned to the UK in 2009 to find work and have been working here ever since, returning to Spain for holidays. I have a home in the UK, pay tax to the HMRC and am UK resident. My husband is still unemployed so if he needs money, I send him some, but it is from my salary and not earnings.

My husband had a tax advisor when he was made redundant who told him that he did not have to complete tax forms as he has been unemployed ever since and did not earn enough. My husband has received a letter from the tax authorities asking why he has not completed tax forms for 2012, 13, 14 and 15.

We declared that my husband had a flat in the UK when the law was introduced that Spanish residents have to declare anything over £50,000. We bought it with my money but put it into his name as I wanted to spread the money/assets to avoid inheritance tax. The flat has been sold, capital gains paid in the UK as a non-resident and the proceeds used to pay towards a mortgage I have in the UK.

We approached an agency who assists people to complete tax forms and they have e-mailed the tax authorities explaining this. However, we are worried. Should we submit tax forms for the years they have requested explaining that he is unemployed, or wait for further contact and do you think he should be liable for tax? I have read somewhere that anyone earning less than 8,000 euros does not have to complete tax returns so we are not sure what to do and we want to do the right thing.

Your advice would be appreciated.

Hi David,

I'm an Australian national and I've been living in Madrid for almost two years and plan on staying for at least another few years (perhaps indefinitely). I am 'pareja de hecho' with my Spanish girlfriend.

I am due to receive a sizeable inheritance from my Australian grandfather so I was wondering if I would be liable to pay any taxes in Spain for it. All the assets are Australian. I currently don't do a tax return as I'm working as a teaching assistant making €9000 a year.

Many thanks!

Hi
I have been offered a job. I am an independent contractor, in Spain. It will last for a maximum 13 days. I have to pay 19% tax, plus €50/day in tax.
Those are the conditions and I can accept or not.
However, what am I entitled to from the Spanish government due to paying income tax?
For these kinds of jobs I have previously paid income tax to the country I live in of the entire amount I have earned.
Thanks
