Resident in Spain, Italian and Romanian Citizenship - taxation info needed

Hi, 

 

If a person is working from Spain, has residency in Spain, Romanian and Italian citizenship and wants to work as a Freelancer, how does he/she declare income, taxes? Etc?

 

Please help!

 

Thank you.

Ioana

A person who is working and resident in Spain would be liable to Spanish taxes (regardless of nationality or citizenship), and would need to consult the local tax authorities about freelancing.

 

Is this a specific question, or simply out of interest?

I have a good family friend, she has Romanian and Italian citizenship and is a Spanish resident now in Tenerife. 

 

She wants to work on Upwork.

 

She spoke to an accountant there and she was advised to become a freelancer and she was told that the taxes are 1000 eur in the first year and up to 3700 euros in the following years.

 

I believe these amounts are quite high for a freelancer in Spain and a second, third opinion would have helped. 

 

Ideally, I would like to speak with a Spanish freelancer. 

 

Thank you so much.

 

Best,

Ioana
