Non Resident In Spain?
- Víctormanuel Paz
Resident and non-resident status according to your tax situation – Here is where you will start understanding what does it really mean to be a resident in Spain or a non-resident. And it all has to do with taxes. If you spend more than 183 days per year in Spain (6 months), you will be regarded as a tax resident.
On the other hand, only living from 1 to 182 days in the country will imply you are a non-resident. *Bear in mind that the years don’t necessarily have to be consecutive. So, as you can see, you can have the residency in Spain and still be considered a non-resident.
That will depend on the number of days per year you spend in the country out of the 365 you are allowed to due to the permit you have.
Can I be a Spanish resident but not a tax resident?
Non-tax Resident – If you did not spend 183 days or more in Spain during the calendar year (January 1 to December 31), you are in the world of non-tax residents. You may own a home or visit a few times a year, but you aren’t in Spain over 183 days in a calendar year.
