With year-round sunshine and more than 8,000km of beaches it is no surprise that Spain is the third most popular destination for Brits moving abroad. Combine that with the laid-back lifestyle, reasonably priced properties, and landmass twice the size of the UK with only two-thirds of its population and you can see why Spain is one of our most frequently requested removals destinations. Whether you are moving just a couple of items to a new holiday home or relocating entirely to sunnier climes, we’ll take the same care, door to door.

Over one million UK expats currently call Spain their home, with the majority of relocation occurring in three main areas: Andalucia in the South; Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands; and the Valencia region on Spain’s east coast. A large British presence means English is widely spoken but it is wise to learn some Spanish for convenience and to help integration. This is especially important if you intend to work in Spain.

British citizens do not require visas to permanently move to Spain. However, within three months of arriving, you should acquire a foreign identity number known as Número de Identidad de Extranjero or NIE, as well as a Tarjeta de Residencia or residency card. You will also need to hold a valid British passport for entry to and exit from Spain.

Non-residents will pay tax on any income arising in Spain; this includes bank interest, business dividend, property income or wages. Income tax rates are similar to the UK’s and range between 24-45%. Further details can be found at expatica.com. You will also continue to receive your UK state pension providing you inform the DWP before your move. You may also be eligible for other UK benefits, of which further details can be found on the Gov.UK website.

Spain boasts an extensive network of roads and railways, and has over 91 airports, of which Madrid, Malaga, Palma, Alicante, Valencia and Barcelona are the biggest. You will need to register your vehicle with Spanish authorities if you plan on spending longer than six months of the year in Spain with your UK-registered car. More information can be found on the Direccion General de Trafico.
