We are moving over this month and wanted to ask which is better, have my state pension paid into our Spanish bank or carry on having it paid into our UK bank and transfer it to our Spanish?

Thanks in advance.

Having it paid into a Spanish bank will give you free banking, which will probably be cheaper than trying to take advantage of exchange rate fluctuations.

Have it paid direct into your Spanish bank.

Not only will this show a regular income into your spanish account when it comes to residency, but will reduce the comission you pay as a non-resident.
