Please continue reading below and we will explain Non-Resident tax – Modelo 210 in Spain

What is Modelo 210?

Modelo 210 is the Spanish tax form for non-residents. It is valid for persons who do not live in spain but own a property in Spain and need to declare property taxes for the spanish home.

You can read more about it on this link.

Do I need to file a tax return in Spain?

If you own a property in Spain, you must declare it in Spain whether you are tax-registered in your home country or Spain. It is a type of state property tax you pay. Often you also pay a local property tax called IBI, you do not need to declare this, but the municipality automatically deducts it after you are registered as the owner of the home.

When do I have to present a tax return? When is the tax due payment?

You must declare no later than December of the year following the tax year. This is true if you do NOT rent out your home. If you rent out your home, you must declare quarterly. The tax is normally deducted on January 21 of the year after you have declared. Ie If you are liable for tax in 2018, you will declare 2019 and your tax will be deducted from your account around January 21, 2020.

How does it work?

We have automated the process of filing your spanish taxes to make it as easy as possible for you. You fill in your details on our site and we file your taxes for you. We set up direct debit for they payment of taxes so the spanish tax authority will draw the taxes from your spanish tax account. You will receive a confirmation from us and your tax will be paid automatically.

If you prefer, you can make a payment to our client account and we make the payment for you.

We have signed a partnership agreement with the tax authority.

How much is the tax?

The tax is usually 0,209-0,38 % of your taxable value if you do not rent out your property. If you do rent out your property, you need to declare your rental income and deduct your costs. The part of the year you do not rent your property you will need to pay an “imputed tax”.

For example if you own a property worth 150 000 euro, your tax is probably around 300-500 euro or lower.

Is it safe?

Yes, all the information you send to us is encrypted by a similar security that banks use.

We do not have access to your bank account and only use it to set up direct debit for the spanish tax authority. It is only the tax authority who can make direct debit payments from your account. We will never charge your account.

You pay our fees by a debit/credit card.

Do you have access to my bank account?

No, we do not have access to your bank account, only the spanish tax authority can charge your account through direct debit.

You pay our fees through a debit/credit card.

Can I present my taxes myself?

Yes, but you need to make sense of a rather difficult spanish tax system. Rules also change, tax forms can differ from year to year.

There might also be problems with bank paymentss or the property values might have been revised between years. The advice you might have found on internet might not be correct and the advice your lawyer or gestor gave you a few years ago might be out of date.

We quite often see cases where somebody has filed for themselves for years and we notice they have not done it correctly.

The good thing about our service is that you won’t have to worry about that and you have access to support if you have any questions.

We like the analogy that sometimes it’s comfortable to go to a restaurant even if you know how to cook. You won’t need to worry about finding a new recipe or doing the dishes.

But hey, if you love cooking, or doing taxes, you can always spend a few hours making a mess in the kitchen.

Our recommendations is that

  1. If you have spent several years in Spain, can Spanish and understand the Spanish bureaucracy and have some sort of economic background, it could be worth while presenting Non-Resident tax – Modelo 210 yourself.
  2. If you can Spanish and have an economic background but just moved to Spain, it is usually best to get help atleast the first year.
  3. All other cases it is usually not worth your time to try get it right and possibly miss deduccions which would lower your tax more than the cost of getting help.

The Spanish tax agency website to present yourself can be found by this link (in Spanish). There is an english version but the tax agency itself has a disclaimer saying that the information there is not always correct and from our experience it does not always work as intented.

ibi
A payment receipt of IBI-tax which can be used to find Valor Catastral

How do I find my Valor Catastral?

Your Valor Catastral is your spanish tax-value of the property. You can find it on your IBI-payment receipt (the municipal property tax). It is Valor Castastral Total which we neeed. I can be also called Valor Catastral / Base Imponible on your IBI-receipt. If you have a newly build house the Valor Catastral might not yet be assiened. In this case, please contant us for more information, [email protected]

You can also take a foto of your IBI-payment, send it to us and we find it for you,

Please click here to find more about IBI and Valor Catastral.

What happens if the tax has not been charged by direct debit as it should have?

Please contact us and we will find out why. Sometimes this might be due to the fact that your bank has registered your account with the passport number and not your NIE number. This prohobits the tax authority to make the payment. It can also be that the bank has missspelled your NIE or that one of the owners of the property is not account holder “titular”.

Please do contact us if you feel unsure and we will help you.

It is important that the account holder is the person who is the owner of th property. If you are a couple, make sure that the account is in the name of both owners.

You also have the possibility to make the payment to our client account and we make the payment directly. This can be an opcion if only one of you is stated as account holder for the bank account or if you are near a deadline and there is no time to set up direct debit.

How do you protect my data?

Please read more about data proteccion here.

I already pay taxes in the UK, Netherlands, Germany or other country, do I still need to file a tax return in Spain?

Yes, you must declare in both countries, in Spain you declare your Spanish residence even if you are tax resident in other country normally. If you have rental income, you must declare these in both your home country and Spain and make deductions according to the respective countries’ tax system. You can then claim the Spanish tax back in some cases under double taxation agreements so that you do not have to double tax.

I have never paid and I should have, what do I do?

If you have never declared Non-Resident tax – Modelo 210 although you should have done so, we recommend to declare retroactively four years back in time, which is the period that the Spanish tax authority usually goes back to claim unpaid taxes.

You may be able to pay a penalty for the years you missed but fortunately there are discounts for this if you choose to declare the years you missed. Please contact us for further information.

What happens if I do not pay Non-Resident tax – Modelo 210?

There are stories online and among friends about people who never bothered to declare Non-Resident Tax – Modelo 210 and nothing has happened. However, this is erroneous and very risky since the Spanish tax authority has access to both Spanish property registers and European tax information through a joint tax register in the EU. It can thus be expensive and come at the same time as you simply become a tax saver and break the law.

Also, note that there are “discounts” on the fines if you choose to declare earlier years when you missed.

Private tax returns are not my strenght, I am allergic to them (and I work at an accountant doing other peoples tax returns 😊), but your system makes it very easy. Easier that I had thought! Especially with the help I received from you, thanks!

Natasha, office manager at an accountant & Leif, small business owner

Marbella

First, I thought “I can do this by myself!”, when it was time to present my first non-resident tax return for my place in Tenerife. After I had tried to collect advise and information online, I realized that this is not something I want to put my time into to do it myself.

There was a British website online and I sent my information to them but after an hour they got in touch with me and said they did not want to do my tax return because there was some problem in the Spanish tax authorities system but I never got a good explanation for the problem.

Then I found Taxadora.com which took upon my case and visited the tax office for me. Apparently, my address records at the Tax authority were incomplete. Taxadora.com helped me to sort everything out. For me it was easy, and I got a really good service.

      Me and my husband/wife own the property together, do we both have to pay?

      Yes, you both need to declare separately, we help you with this and you get a better price.

      I do not rent out my property, do I still have to pay Non-Resident Tax – Modelo 210?

      Yes! You must. It is considered a taxable benefit for owning a second home. You can see Non-Resident Tax – Modelo 210 as a state property tax.

      I do rent out my property and already pay a tax for this in my home country, do I still have to pay?

      Yes, you must declare both income in your home country and Spain. You deduct according to the respective country’s rules and then can claim back the Spanish tax under the double taxation agreement. To declare rental income, please click here to learn more.

       

      What is a certificate of tax residency?

      You request a tax residency certificate from your home country tax agency. It is a certificate issued by the  Tax Agency to certify that you have your tax residence in your country. This means that you are liable to tax in Spain only as a “non-resident” and only pay tax on the assets and income you receive from Spain.

      Do I need to send a Certificate of Tax Residency when I declare Non-Resident Tax – Modelo 210?

      Normally, you need to submit a tax residence certificate the first time you declare. It may also happen that the tax authority demands this. Then you must apply for one on the your home country´s Tax Agency which shows that you are liable to tax in your home country. You then send us the residence certificate to us and we pass this on to the Spanish tax office.

      Certificate of Residency in Spain - you might need one from your home country

      Do I need to send receipts of the deductions I want to make?

      No, you do not normally need to send in your receipts. Non-Resident Tax – Modelo 210 is a preliminary declaration stating the income you have had and the costs you feel you are entitled to deduct. If the tax authorities make a different interpretation or request receipts, you will hear from them and then it is important that you have receipts that are approved.
