    saw a post on another forum about this and if it is right the estimated £400 mil to be reclaimed is another burden the corrupt politicians have placed on the spainish people by being how do you say it “racists” or do you think thats abit strong and they were just exploiting ex-pats families at a sad time

    Darboy, for us who do not hve access to what you have read would you like to expand on it. If these Brits where Spanish residents than they must have paid the tax according to Spanish law ( whatever the law means to any one of us ) If they were Brits than there would have been double taxation relief !!!!

    From what i understand it is the fact that brits who inherited from a family member who lived in spain were taxed more than they would have been if they were spanish.It has been ruled illegal for them to do it so brits can now claim the extra back.The tax hasn’t been changed by the spanish government yet so it is still ongoing even thou there is this ruling

    What a load of crap. (the comment from the other forum that is)

    Got nothing to do with nationality, it is whether you are a fiscal resident or not. Fair enough, that still might contravene EU but it is not down to nationality or race.

    As a result of my complaint to Brussels nearly 2 years ago, the Spanish Government has been told to stop discriminating between resident and non-resident property owners on IHT. They have failed to put their house in order, and the matter is likely to go back to Brussels. As yet, there is no basis for any refunds, although there may well be in future.
