Residency Tax Status

Further to my post relating to country of tax residency, Margaret’s posting earlier this week is quite correct, in that the circumstances I described only come into force when the tax residency status cannot be determined by the normal rules of the participating states, or there is a conflict between these rules, and I apologise for the confusion my post may have caused.

For the UK, these rules are fully described in the HMRC document RDR3 and can be found on their website. The full link is –


Further information can be found, (again on the HMRC website), on this link –


I have been unable to find the equivalent rules for Spain, but this may be due to limited understanding of Spanish.

The UK rules are quite complicated, but they show that the 183 day rule is still applicable. If you spend more than 183 days in the UK in any tax year then you are taxed, without exception, in the UK.

However, you can spend less time, (in some circumstances considerably less time), in the UK but still be considered a UK tax resident. In my particular circumstances, I am still considered a UK tax resident as long as I spend a minimum of 30 days in the UK in each tax year. When I spoke with HMRC on the subject they directed me to a particular web page where they have an interactive tool that you can complete. When all the necessary data has been entered, it gives you an immediate decision on your residency status for tax purposes. When I used this tool, it confirmed my tax status as above. Of course, this may be in conflict with the Spanish rules, but I am unsure how it would be put to the test.

This tool can be found by going to the following link –


This should open a form entitled, “Check your Residence Status”

Scroll down to “Information you may need” and click on Go to the Tax Residence Indicator and follow the document completion instructions.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in  JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
