Default Recommendations for a good TAX accountant

Hi all,

I recently read a thread someone posted here about being resident here in Spain while wanting to be self employed in the UK. The thread didn't really answer my question and I realise it would be best to talk to a local accountant to check my legal obligations, so any recommendation for a good reliable accountant who speaks reasonable English would be greatly appreciated.

I have a LTD company registered in the UK and pay all my taxes in the UK. I don't have access to public health nor any benefits here in Spain and am not applying for it. So would hope to speak to an accountant that has experience with my scenario.

Thank you,
Daniel

If you are resident here you are obliged to declare for tax here with the double taxation treaty your UK tax payments will be taken into account but you still need to declare to be legal.

Maybe if you give us your area you will get more responses regarding tax advisers.

Just for the record if you live in Spain then not having access to public health care or receiving benefits have nothing to with anything including your position regarding tax.

Whether applied for or not once you've spent over 182 days in the country then you are a de facto tax resident.

hi Daniel, it is quite simple and you do not need specialist advice. If you live in Spain for more than 182 days in a year then you are obliged to pay taxes here, wherever the money is earned. The first year you declare your worldwide assets then later the same year declare your annual earnings remembering that in Spain the tax year starts January 1st. Not using the health service is of no importance. We use a very good tax advisor in Coín which is not far from Malaga and possibly cheaper. Good luck.
