We are considering spending more than six months a year in Spain having spent many happy holidays in our home there although never longer than six
months.It seems we would then have to declare our total financial situation to the Spanish tax man.This would mean losing our ISA tax protection and also having lower personal allowances.Not to mention whatever future tax attacks the government has planned.It does nt really encourage you to volunteer.

you should register as resident if you live here for more than 90 days- that's totally separate though from the tax issue

... don't be confused (as so many seem to be) about 'residencia' - where you live and fiscal residence - where you have to pay taxes etc.


You need to be registered resident after 90 days ('residencia).

You need to be registered for tax after 183 days - happens automatically (fiscally resident).
