I am a UK resident and domiciled in the UK. If I become ordinarily resident in Spain for tax purposes, do I become liable for capital gains tax on worldwide gains made outside of Spain and also income that is earned outside of Spain? If so are there any meaningful exemptions that can be applied?
I am an spanish attorney
As long as you are no resident in Spain, you only are supposed to declare the incomes from Spain, and never other ones.
You can not declare another ones in Spain.
The law is clear in the article 12
Here you got the legal reference
In order to get pay the incomes in Spain you have to be resident, then you will declare all incomes you got inside or outside Spain
Even tou will deduce the taxes paid outside of the taxes to be paid in Spain
