Do you know if the same applies to Inheritance/Succession Tax (IHT)? I appreciate that Brexit may affect this in the future, but, under current rules, would my daughter, a UK national resident in Dubai, be treated more-or-less identically for IHT as my son (UK national and resident). I am assuming that I will be tax-resident in Catalunya on my death, with most of my assets located in Spain.
My guess would be that a non-EEA resident would be subject to the general Spanish rules rather than the more generous Catalunyan rules,
I was advised the opposite by my accountant, and was denied all property deductions when I lived in Switzerland even though I have British citizenship, because he said I had to be resident in the EU to be eligible for the deductions and citizenship didn´t matter.
Sorry, I have to rectify. I was wrong to say that nationality counts. It’s residence that counts. I wasn’t thinking straight. I just went back to check Raymundo’s guide to non-resident taxes and it makes it very clear.
