      Hi,

      I was just wondering if you purchased a property in spain and are non resident i.e you use it for a holiday home – is it possible to claim the vat back?

      would be grateful for any replies

      Many thanks

      Hi Angela

      Wouldn’t that be great, I dont think the customs would allow that somehow, the only way it might work is if the house was bought in the name of a british vat registered business who could demonstrate that it was for use within the company.

      Hi Angela,

      Let me explain a general concept with regard to taxes, fees, costs, fines etc for non-residents, (which loosely translated means non-Spanish) :-

      You pay far more and even a few taxes are even invented that are not applicable to residents!

      Hi guys

      I know only too well about the taxes the spanish authorities charge – have owned apartment for 5 years. Was reading an article here in ireland about claiming VAT back and thought I’d ask the question.

      Many thanks for your replies – let’s hope that in time the abolish the income tax for non residents.
