Unhappy Teachers Pension problem with Spanish Tax Office

Has any retired UK teacher who submits a Spanish tax return received a letter demanding documentary proof that their teachers pension is a "civil service pension"?

The only letter I have managed to extract from the Teachers Pension Service does not satisfy the Spanish Tax Office.

Anyone had any success with this?

They are of course correct it is not a Civil Service Pension. It is a Government Pension and I seem to think I have seen a list of Government/Local Government Pensions that qualify. It was perhaps a HMRC document, you could ask the tax people In Cardiff if they have such a list. Lots of retired teachers/Local Government officers post on here and I have not seen any complaint that they have been denied DTT status. The only problems I have seen are with NHS pensions only a few of which qualify. Are you certain your local Hacienda are not confusing Government and State Pensions?

You could point them to this UK government website.

https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-man...ual/intm343040

Note that the term "Civil Service" is nowhere mentioned, pensions are either government or non government.

I get my Scottish teachers pension, and had no problems on my declarations. I have no need to submit any further declarations now, on legal advice, as I have only pensions as sole income.

The list does include "Civil Service" and states that they are, not surprisingly, government pensions.
