This is the list of those who receive a crown pension 





11 Apr 2021 11:16 AM:

I have a crown pension.  

In 2014, a friend in Hacienda, made enquiries within his organisation to confirm how the CP should be shown on the declaration, to ensure no error.

For each of years 2014, 2015 and 2016, I have been required by AEAT (hacienda) to prove that the sum I showed as my CP was such.  Each year I have obtained a letter from pension managers, confirming the pension status.  My gestor then sent a translation to the tax office

This year, in relation to my income for 2016, AEAT, despite me taking the same action as previously to prove the pension, took over 4.000 euros from my bank account.  My gestor almost immediately reimbursed my account.

In 2014 when CPs first had to be declared in Spain, I tried to get some official a action to prevent further problems for me and others in my situation. I wrote to the U.K. government signatories to the 2013 Doubke Taxation Agreement, and the professional bodies representing other such pensioners, including the police, civil servants, military, firemen, etc.  Only the police replied and they in effect have done nothing.

If anyone knows how I, and others like me, can get 'officialdom' to fix the problem I should be grateful.

PS. Beiderbeck.  

Re which box.

I know the box in 2015 changed from that in 2014.  Not sure it has remaind the sane since.

Thread: 'New' tax on income from property.

11 Mar 2021 11:31 AM:


I amended my green certificate registration in 2010 when I got my first Irish passport.

That has meant I am Irish with the rights that go with that.  There is no requirement to show anywhere that I have dual nationality.

In your case I would apply to modify/ replace your NIE certificate to show you are Irish. As you say, being Irish, you will then retain the rights you had prior to Brexit.

I post this for information:-

It's from Spence Clarke accountants.  It was in response to a question "my son allows a friend to live rent free in his apartment.  The friend pays the utility charges.  Could those payments be seen by hacienda as income and therefore taxable ?'



"Hacienda could not claim this if there is an agreement that explains clearly that there is no rent and the tenant is using the property free of charge for security and maintenance purposes subject to the tenant discharging utility and other costs.

The ‘all costs included’ tenancy agreement is perfectly sensible and gets around most of the disadvantages of 3rdcountry residents. We used to use this many years ago for clients when all non residents had to pay tax on gross rent. The EU resident costs deduction is actually quite recent and forced on Spain by the EU.

The biggest problem is trusting the tenant that then for many mortgage interest which cannot be treated in this manner. You have to trust implicitly the tenant as non payment of community fees, insurance,  water, IBI, basura is not easy to control in normal tenancy circumstances, probably the great majority of cases."
