Since the Spanish Tax Authorities (AEAT) put in place in 2012 the World-Wide Assets Declaration (Modelo 720) is a headache for ex-pats with offshore wealth, and unfortunately, even a reason to think twice before buying a home in Spain.
This form states that a tax resident in Spain who has assets and property located overseas has the obligation to inform of these on the Form 720.
We at UK Tax Refund have gained enough expertise in this field so we can help and assist you throughout the entire process. Find below how it works and what we can do for you.
