If a:

1. Spanish non resident (in terms of domicile)  owns a home in the UK (domiciled)  and pays UK self assessment tax,

2.  also owns a home in Spain ( registered in the Town Hall since 2003)  and pays Spanish self assessment tax.

3. spends roughly half the year in each country, ( 3 or 4 changes of country per year - but not counting!)

4.  and is over 65 years old

How does the above personal and fiscal arrangements fit in with the following statement:

Exemptions and reductions for residents: Residents aged 65 and over, who have lived in their Spanish property (their Spanish property has been their main home) for at least three years are exempt from paying Capital Gains tax when selling. Proof of the term of residency in the property are three annual tax declarations featuring the address of the property and a current padron certificate from the Town Hall. This is another reason why it is so important to submit an annual tax declaration.


What is not clear is (their Spanish property has been their main home) .

We are equally at home ( not a holiday home) in Spain and UK but I guess that is a matter of choice and not residency!!!

Concise and clear answer.

Can one be tax resident in Spain but non resident in time?

We are (hoping) to sell our Spanish home in the not tooooooooo distant future!!!!

If there is truth in the exemptions for the over 65's then we can factor in a price reduction to help with the sale!!

Would appreciate any info on the subject.
