Should my friend keep a Spanish bank account open if he visits Spain as a tourist only?


Recommended Posts

Could my friend face any issues with the Spanish government if he shuts down his only Spanish account, and uses his UK Starling account for future payments?


He is a British citizen, resident in the UK, and pays taxes there. He stays within the time limits set by the Schengen area while in Spain.

He has a property in Spain that he occasionally rents out, paying taxes on the income.


I have a strong intuition that he should maintain a Spanish bank account, even though I can't recall the particular reasons why.
