Spain is the home country of the largest community of British citizens in Europe and a considerable number of Spaniards live in the UK. For the Spanish Government, the issue of respect for the rights of citizens who exercised their right to free movement before leaving the UK is a priority and the emergency measures being prepared are aimed at achieving this objective. However, from 00:00 on the day of withdrawal, the UK becomes a third country and UK nationals are therefore no longer considered EU citizens. On 14 November 2018, the United Kingdom and the European Union reached a draft agreement on withdrawal conditions. UPDATE of EU withdrawal: new information on residence and visas on the draft withdrawal agreement between the UK and the EU. For more information on pets in Europe in the Pets section. The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period between the withdrawal date and December 31, 2020. For more information on the EU-UK withdrawal agreement, see: ec.europa.eu/info/european-union-and-united-kingdom-forging-new-partnership/eu-uk-withdrawal-agreement_en. 1 Information in Spanish and English on the measures taken and the measures implemented on Brexit are available at: www.interior.gob.es/web/servicios-al-ciudadano/brexit#Residencia. To date, the agreement on the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union has not yet been signed and the terms of the agreement will not be final until it is approved by the UK and the European Union. Persons who enter and are not covered after the end of the transitional period, i.e. after 1 January 2021, are subject to the general rules applicable to foreigners, unless the conditions of mobility are set as part of the agreement on future relations between the UK and the EU.
The UK has a double taxation agreement with Spain to ensure that you do not pay taxes on the same income in both countries. You can ask the relevant tax authorities for double taxation relief. The withdrawal agreement sets out the conditions for the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and provides for an agreement on citizens` rights. It sets a transition period that will last until December 31, 2020. During this period, you will be able to continue to live, work and study throughout the EU, as you did before 31 January 2020. Until the UK`s exit from the European Union, UK nationals remain EU citizens and can therefore reside (and work, study) in Spain in accordance with EU law. Similarly, family members, regardless of nationality, can accompany them and, as such, obtain a residence card from a family member of an EU citizen. 2 Relevant information on Brexit and the withdrawal agreement and immigration issues for British citizens can be found in our other Brexit reports in the GMS flash alert at home.kpmg/xx/en/home/insights/2015/09/flash-alert-brexit.html.
