Default Recently moved to Spain

Hi All,
I am retired and in receipt of two private pensions and the State Pension. Total before tax £28750.00. We have an appointment for residency with the Police in August, I am currently paying tax on my pensions in the U.K.

I’m told the taxation in Spain is higher than that of the UK. Is it possible to be resident in Spain but continue to be taxed in the U.K.? Any advice will be gratefully received.

Simple answer is no, certain pensions remain UK taxable only i.e. government pensions not including state pension. Others will advise you better.

Bobd22 has it dead right , after six months, 183 days, you become liable for Spanish tax on your worldwide income. If you have a pension from a UK government service this will be computed in your tax liability and you will only pay tax in Spain on the "excess".
Make sure you correctly inform the UK tax authorities of your date of departure and fill out and send the appropriate Double Taxation agreement documentation to the Inland Revenue when you are starting to pay Spanish tax.
