 If you sell on Jan 1st and hit the 183 day rule on 31st December you are tax resident retrospectively on Jan 1st.

Re: Many tax questions

No, when you become tax resident, you are treated as tax resident from January 1st in that year. Spain doesn’t allow split tax years like the UK does.

Welcome to the forum.

Ask Prevision Medica - they should tell you which ones speak English.

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

Peter, can I assume that the TV source you use at present is I907? If you are getting reception problems a dish upgrade may be all you need. I use an 80cm dish and that fails only in really bad weather. I was advised that upping it to 100cm would make a big difference at reasonable cost (I haven't f...

Re: Many tax questions

It’s a very complex subject. Your ISAs and premium bond income is taxable in Spain. I would suggest you take professional advice on this as there may be tax efficient alternatives. I can’t make any personal recommendations but Blevins Franks have a better reputation than most of the other advisors. ...

It really needs to be Certificado. For the sake of a few euros compared to the very real hassle if Correos lose it!

Re: Changing to Spanish driving licence

My advice for exchanging a UK licence would always be to get a gestor to do it. They don’t charge much and from many members posts, it is quicker and avoids a lot of hassle and travel.

As for renewals, the current system runs like clockwork.
