    Based on 9 months in Spain for 2 people Suma is local rates. Wealth tax is based on assumed profit you make on your property weather or not you let it out . But it is possible this will be changed this year due to resedentia laws being changed. Fiscal rep is my solicitors charges for paying and calculating the taxes when due.

    There is no contest between UK and Spain!

    My Council tax is now in excess of £1,500 the equivelant here in Spain is 92 euros.

    TV - more channels cost less in Spain.

    Water and Electric - Cheaper in Spain

    Community charge here gives me two swimming pools to use when ever I like.

    Eating out in Spain - a fraction of the UK cost

    Drinks - cheaper than UK (although beer is creeping ever higher here)

    Supermarket prices are on the whole less than at home

    If you own a car in Spain it is cheaper to run by far and you are not persecuted day and night by the pesky speed cameras (tax cameras)

    Also you have probably invested less of your hard earned in buying the home in Spain in the first place. With lower mortgage rates.

    Default costs

    As previously stated telephone line 15 euros a month, tv package includes sports 1,2,3,+eurosport and movies 1+2, bbc etc. 15 euros so total of 30 euros a month plus cost of calls which for us is very low because we mostly use a webcam for family chats.
