Since Brexit the UK is not a member of the EU. The biggest change to effect UK citizens is freedom of movement across EU countries. The UK is now a separate country to the EU. The agreements made between EU countries no longer applies to the UK.
One of the biggest changes is that a UK citizen can spend a maximum of 90 days in Spain in any 180 day period. The good news is visas are not required or any forms being filled.
If you have already, or are going to, invest 500,000 euros in Spanish property you can apply for a long term visa known as the ‘Golden Visa’.
The Golden Visa gives you an allowance to stay in Spain for 2 years. These can be renewed and once you have been living in Spain for over 5 years you can apply for permanent resident status.
Tax – the country of your permanent residence is where you pay tax. If you are living in Spain less than six months per year you will just need to pay tax on your Spanish assets.
