There is so much confusion about residency in Spain. People often don’t understand if they are a Resident, Tax Resident, or Non-Tax Resident. This is especially true for those citizens within the EU who can travel and reside in the EU countries freely and sometimes for the Non-EU citizens too.
We all ask questions in groups and forums regarding residency in Spain, buying and selling a Spanish property, making a will in Spain, how to handle taxes, and more. These are questions sometimes best answered by a Spanish lawyer, to be sure you are getting the right answer. Below we have several frequently asked questions, with links to the detailed answers from a local Spanish solicitor. Please bookmark this page, as we will continue to add more as time goes by.
