I have submitted a form 720 Asset Declaration as a current

Customer Question

I have submitted a form 720 Asset Declaration as a current Spanish Resident.
However, i was not resident in Spain for tax purposes in 2012, as i spent time in the UK and elsewhere,resulting in my actual time in Spain being around 155days.
It appears that i have declared something that i did NOT need to declare!
How can this be rectified?

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

How do i actually get the declaration that i should not have made back. Currently the Hacienda have it.

Attorney3044 :

You could ask them for a copy of it

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

Do you agree that i should not have submitted one if i spent less than 182 days in Spain in "012?

Attorney3044 :

Well, if you own a real state propiety in spain you should make it anyway, in other cases no

Attorney3044 :

To make the declaration does not supposed to have to pay

Attorney3044 :

Taxes paid in others countries are deductibles in spain

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

Surely the form is about overseas assets only-not Spanish property?

Attorney3044 :

I will check it for you

Attorney3044 :

wait a minute please

Attorney3044 :

Yes thats right

Attorney3044 :

Its about goods or values out of spain

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

Basically i was not tax resident in the Uk,spain or elsewhere in 2012.

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

Do you agree that the form should NOT have been submitted?

Attorney3044 :

I see

Attorney3044 :

Yes

Attorney3044 :

You need to stay 183 days

Attorney3044 :

180

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

How do i get the Hacienda to cancel/ignore it?

Attorney3044 :

Read the last link provided, there are several cases

Attorney3044 :

In all of them, the way to tell them to ignore it its to make a new declaration form and ask to erease the previous one

Attorney3044 :

If no incomes goes to your accounts from spain, you do not have to declare at all

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

ok-thanks.

Attorney3044 :

The problem its that they could ask you where have you paid

Attorney3044 :

Because they could ask and force you to pay if you did not paid anywhere

Attorney3044 :

And then you could say that in your country you do not have to pay whatever reason it is

JACUSTOMER-03n1qqcm- :

Thakyou-can you give me the links you mentioned please
