Thinking of Moving to Spain? You need this book.
Moving to a new country is as exciting as it is stressful. What’s more, Spain is not the easiest bureaucracy to navigate. Those who remember the Extranajero office before the pre-booked appointment system will know just how frustrating and seemingly insurmountable the process of registration is. And that is before you’ve even got started on buying your home. As they say, though, knowledge is power and to arm yourself with up-to-date information that you can rely on is highly valuable. Hello the Blevins Franks Guide to Living in Spain.
This 300-page book will provide you with all you need to know, from the Legal Side of Buying a Property in Spain to what happens with your UK home while your living in Spain, from tax on your rental income to succession laws and taxes. In fact it seems to tell you all the things you need to know before you realized you even needed to know them.
Topics covered include buying your property in Spain, managing foreign exchange, tax residency, income tax, local tax, capital gains tax, wealth tax, reporting obligations, inheritance, social security and healthcare, wills and succession laws, managing your pension from the UK, and so much more.
This is the 11th edition and the guide is updated regularly. This particular issue was published in March 2016. With Brexit looming, there may be some big changes coming, but not for a while. In the meantime this guide will stand you in good stead.
