Our residencia process

I thought I would post our recent residencia process.

We obtained padron from the town hall 1st. We then went to the registry office with padron and other documents to obtain a notra simpla as deeds are not acceptable. Our residencia application was then submitted to murcia with all relevant paperwork including every copy of our passport pages, proof of €9400 in our Spanish bank account and annual health care that is suitable to obtain residencia. We went with Asssa and cost was just over 1700 for us both but this depends on your age and medical conditions. 

Our residencia application was submitted in July and was approved in September. 

We have just been to the police station to have our finger prints taken and will receive our cards in about 40 days.

We did not have to proof an income or what we had in our UK bank account.

Each individuals circumstances differ. I strongly advise using a translator. We used Fiona at [email protected] and she has been outstanding.

Hi, seems to have all been smooth for you, and thats what people want, no one wants complications.

You will have to declare all your assets world wide re the 720 declaration, as the tax man here wants to see everything, hopefully you had your finances sorted before you got your residencia.

to get it all correct you will need a accountant, as it can be complicated, and not declaring all can lead to big fines.

We are fully aware of that thank you. We are above board and fully legal and have a tax accountant.

Your right, we did the same, so no shocks, especially with UK pensions, and sorted out everything financial before taking residency.

Brexit will no doubt throw up a few questions, and the Spanish will be looking very closely how to tax ex pats when the UK leaves this year, as it is a great opportunity for them to alter rules, and get some taxes payed into a very needed economy, as per the rest of many countries.

I think you have really left it too late. We started ours as soon as we arrived in July. Try Debbie Shaw or Fiona Harvey but days away from Christmas I very much doubt they will be able to submit your application before the deadline. There is a lot of paperwork involved. Padron insurance money in bank notra simpla etc etc. Everyone's circumstances differ. I really think you have left it far too late im afraid

Are you on the padron? Have you s1 or private health care ? We have deeds but we also needed to go to another office to get deeds made to notra simpla in person. If not you have no chance im afraid. Im sorry but your chances are very slim.
