Resident in Spain since 2006, always completed annual return. Only income – British DWP pension and British state pension. In the consciousness of the DTT of 2013, attracted numerous requests in 2015 to establish the date of the declaration of the public pension. It has not been able to determine whether it is considered a tax on former persons declared from 12.6.14 or as income tax from 1.1.15. I explained every year from 2015.

The AEAT (Huercal Overa Office) said that I have to recover from my pension provider – impossible for a state pension that is only taxable in Britain. No one seems to know when to explain themselves, or what the difference is between withholding tax and tax on (my kind) income. I can`t even find anyone else facing this problem, and my accountant at Villalba d`Albox, seems to be having a hard time getting this call forward. Even HMRC`s DTT preamble is unclear on the difference between the two types of taxable income. In the case of the United Kingdom and Spain, it is possible that each country`s national tax systems allow people to legally reside in both countries. To overcome this complication, the double taxation convention was drawn up between the United Kingdom and Spain. Here we explain what you need to know about the agreement. The 24-party double taxation convention defines taxes that can be reduced in both countries.
In Spain (with the corresponding terms in Spanish): in general, you can only be a tax resident in one country. However, it is certainly not outside the realm of the possibility that you meet the national criteria defined in different countries. In this scenario, your tax obligations are defined by a double taxation agreement. These depend on where you have your permanent home, vital interest or usual residence. If it is not clear, it will be limited to your nationality. At Lusa Legal, we want to help you understand Spanish tax law, especially the double taxation convention.
