If you can prove residency in the UK then you will not be a tax resident in Spain regardless of where your wife and children are.

It is the presumption you are resident (tax resident) in Spain if your family are here it is up to you to prove otherwise.

If you are going to become a resident in Soain along with your wife and children and soend more than 182 days here per year then the above post applies.

I think that you will find that that is incorrect after the multi-millionaire case a couple of years back where he rarely visited the UK & so paid no tax as 'non-resident'. After many years & numerous cases He was declared a resident & tax resident due to the fact that his wife & children lived in the UK with the 4 of them attending various schools /unis etc.

My husband has both habitual and tax residency in another country despite the fact his family live in Spain.

This can be proved with his visa application and tax returns in that country.

The country in which he resides and pays tax has a double taxation agreement with Spain.

We have an expat tax consultant in the UK keeping things straight with the HMRC & a Spanish accountant in the town I reside.

I suggest the OP does the same.
