Hello, Phillip and Luke, have you checked this page? www.gov.uk/tax-uk-income-live-abroad/taxed-twice Maybe it might be useful. Greetings, VIVA Team There is a risk that your income will be taxed twice if two countries have the right to tax your income, for example: if you live in one country and if you are a member of the management of one company in another, the country in which the company is located can tax the fees and income associated with that role. If you spend more than 6 months a year in another EU country, you may be considered a tax resident in that country and unemployment benefits transferred by another country may be taxed there. Unemployment benefits under many bilateral tax treaties are only subject to the country of tax residence. The detection of the text of the treaty can sometimes be difficult, especially when the texts of the treaty have not been written with English-language versions. In this guide, we`ve suggested some good places to start your search. Hello Chris, thanks for your message! I am afraid that my knowledge of HMRC taxation will not extend as far as that 🙁 We`re sorry you`re not able to help you do that, but it sounds like something you should accept with a qualified professional with a full knowledge of the UK tax system (especially given the frequency of changes). Unless there are other blog readers who can offer you some advice?? Highly noteworthy, Simon Our tax per page by country contains details of all online sources of double taxation contracts known to the library team. If the tax treaty you are interested in is not included or if you are unsure of the existence of a contract between two countries, a tax database such as the IBFD tax research platform can help fill this gap. To apply for a refund or tax relief in the country in which you live, you will probably need to provide some documentation proving that you paid taxes on the income you earned abroad. You may need to provide certified translations of all official documents used to support your application. But you are not a Spanish resident and only visit a few weeks a year to not take time to book rent.
You report the rents to HMRC? And even if you do, Hacienda (the Spanish taxman) must know about it? After all, I can only be taxed once, right? The Double Taxation Agreement came into force on June 12, 2014. In terms of context, why if you own or have assets in Spain, it is financially more advantageous to be a resident than to be a foreigner in the territory. I suggested that this was related to the tax treaty between the two countries, and I will discuss it today (I apologize in advance for the technical jargon). You fall in love with a two-bedroom apartment just steps from Mijas Costa beach, which you know will earn you excellent rental income throughout the year – wait a second, it looks perfectly like VIVA`s new stock, Delta Mar Suites! – and you choose to buy. All right, I like the cutting of your arrow. First, remember at this stage that you automatically have a tax residence in Spain if you live there for more than 183 days over a 12-month period. In other words, even if you haven`t got your Spanish residence permit – something I would recommend around the corner with Brexit – but you live here for much of the year, you are required to file an annual tax return. To apply for the double tax exemption, you may need to prove where you live and that you have already paid taxes on your income. Check with tax authorities to find out what documents and documents you need to submit. Hello I have the same problem, my municipal pension is taxable in Britain. This year received letters from the Tax Office, which was tax-related in 2015 as well as interest.
