Hi everyone, I'm Steve, and my wife is Belinda, and we are hoping to move to Spain, eventually. We are thinking of driving down in our little van, so we can bring a small selection of household items with us, bed, linen, tv, and a few 'nick-nacks', etc, but we've heard it can be difficult getting through Spanish customs. The van is on Spanish plates and registered in Spain, but the items we bring are from the UK. Is this a good idea, or would we be better off buying stuff in Spain instead ?

It's complex and you need 'the correct paper work', if you are moving residence to Spain and proof you lived in UK long term no duty, if not, the value of goods subject to Local VAT IVA. You need all the paper work for port customs. Good luck.
