Earlier this year - without prior warning - the Spanish Tax Office changed the tax rules for non-residents.

Non-residents, on renting their Spanish property, used to file a tax return every tax quarter. This is no longer the case.

Going forward, all non-residents who rent their property out will need to file only one tax return a year, on the first two weeks of January. This matches what tax residents need to do on submitting their tax once a year.

So, for example, if a non-resident rented out during 2024, they would now have to file a tax return on their rental income on the first two weeks of 2025.
