Ok thanks for that, will take that into account and keep records to prove im spending more time in UK etc eventually I would probably transition to become a resident in spain (Brexit pending) but as you know they clobber you for tax there especially if you have assets etc so i'm keen to avoid that for a while until I settle down and it becomes more difficult to split my time.
