A Fresh start for September
30 August 2016 @ 13:15

September is one of the times of year when lots of people make resolutions and fresh starts. Normally these revolve around health and getting fit after a long, hot lazy summer!

But it’s also a good time of year to get all of your personal admin sorted as well. Maybe you’ve been putting things off for some time now? Now is a good time to start organising your personal affairs – and this is where we can help you.

If you feel that you may have ignored your financial or legal obligations since moving here to Spain or buying a holiday home, either by listening to others who have made the move or reading articles in the press/on line, then let us help you.

We at Abad can review your personal situation with a wealth of experience and advise you accordingly on the way forward, giving you a full personal ‘MOT’.

Often friends and neighbours offer advice that isn’t relevant to your particular situation and that is why it is important to speak to an expert.

We can advise you on the following:

  • Wills and most importantly the dangers that may be faced should you own property in Spain and not have one
  • Tax residency – not sure if you are tax resident here or in the UK? The answer to this question will affect which annual returns you have to make here in Spain, so you need to get it right
  • Non-residents’ taxes – when and how much is payable
  • Residents’ taxes - when and how much is payable and additional information which may or may not need to be reported about your financial situation
  • Inheritance tax – should you or your spouse pass away, how will  this tax affect you
  • Probate – how we can take away the stress of dealing with a loved one’s affairs when they pass away
  • Council tax (IBI)
  • Buying/selling your property – the process explained simply should you be considering this now or in the future
  • And lots more………..
