When you move to Spain you will be faced with a new set of tax rules that will have a significant impact on your savings and investments. What was tax efficient in the UK is unlikely to be tax efficient for you in Spain. They may feel like a safe option, but tax efficient plans in the UK such as ISA’s and UK investment bonds will no longer provide you with the same tax benefits when you become resident in Spain – even winnings from Premium Bonds are taxable. Worldwide bank interest is taxed as savings income in Spain.
With the introduction of Common Reporting Standards your information can be passed seamlessly between providers and tax authorities and disclosure of all investments and income is essential to avoid punitive measures from the Spanish tax office.
The good news for you is that there are tax efficient investments available to Spanish tax residents where capital can grow free of tax which will allow you to maximise returns from your investments and minimise your tax liability.
