Why don't you write to the inland revenue U.K. , they will advise. I have been a Spanish resident for nearly 10 years, I pay U.K. tax on both my pensions, one is a Government Pension which is taxed at source and cannot be changed. The other is O.A.P. I too have to submit a U.K. tax return, but my Wife does not. I think this is because when I resided in the U.K. I was self employed for the last ten years or so.
Also when I last checked I was better off paying U.K. tax, less to pay than if it was Spanish tax. I do not submit a Spanish return because I do not have an income in Spain
