While I am here - does anyone know of a good UK accountant who is familiar with ex-pat (spain) situations? We have been paying 40 quid for each return. Otherwise we will have to do self assessment - I refuse to pay upwards of 200 quid for each return as some people have been quoting me...!!!
You dont have any Government pensions at all then?
Spain wont be taxing you on your pensions btw unless you are declaring it to them ... does your UK accountant somehow do that then by putting a Spanish tax return in?
