Its not just a case of declaring you will pay, you have actually now got to file the first time and get into the system.
As far as I'm aware you have always had to submit a Spanish tax return first before they would issue a certificate of fiscal residence, it isn't any kind of new requirement.

Your point re not choice of where one gets their UK state pension paid is exactly how I understood it hence I have mine paid Gross to spanish bank account and pay tax on it in Spain. However not that long back on this forum similar was being discussed and someone I can't remember who stated one could choose to have it paid and taxed as I do or paid to UK account and taxed in the UK, hence I said I personally wasn't sure on that. I certainly know many people here in Spain who have it paid and taxed in the UK which I thought wasn't correct.

OK let us cut out all the if and buts crap - and in an attempt to keep it simple:-

If you receive UK State pension and a private pension and are resident in Spain you will pay tax on ALL pensions and yes the tax will probably be higher because the allowances are less here.If you are a UK citizen, you must complete form FD9 to apply for UK income tax exemption and get UK tax code NT (no tax)

By completing this form you are consenting to the Spanish Revenue, certifying to HMRC that you are resident in Spain for the purposes of Spanish tax.

Thanks.

BTW way Lynn your link does not work.

I completed an FD9 years ago it now looks like it has been renamed - Spain Form Individual.

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ain-individual

When I filled out my FD9 I then took it to the Spanish tax office who stamped it to prove I was resident in Spain and thus must declare for tax in Spain - it was then sent to the UK tax office which processed it and gave me the NT code and from then on my pensions were paid gross with no tax deducted at source.

The form is obtained online from HMRC and has to be sent to the UK along with a fiscal residency certificate once completed.

Hi all, is it true that if you are in receipt of your UK state pension in spain that it does not rise very year via the triple lock mechanism? If so, then how does it rise or does it just stagnate ? Thanks

Yes, from the pensioner's point of view, it does seem harsh. But the way the government looks at it is it's very expensive to uprate pension yearly, as it has come from current year revenue, so they only uprate for pensioners living abroad if there is legal obligation to do so, such as under EU rules (when UK was a member), Brexit withdrawal agreement and reciprocal social security treaties. Also they argue that overseas pensioners aren't ploughing their pensions back into UK economy but spending them elsewhere.

Personal pension plans in the UK from life companies such as Aviva, Aegon etc will pay UK tax at source. If you are taking benefits as a Spanish resident and do nothing about this then you have to invoke the dual tax treaty and all the admin that comes with it. What you should do is apply to HMRC for a 'NT' tax code as a non UK tax payer. This negates the requirement for your pension provider to pay that tax at source leaving you to receive gross benefits from which you can pay Spanish tax.
