The income to be declared will be the whole amount received from the lessee, without deducting any expenses.

However, in the case of taxpayers resident in another European Union member state and, from 1 January 2015, also in Iceland and Norway, they may deduct the expenses provided for in the Personal Income Tax Act for the determination of the gross tax base, provided that it is certified that such expenses are directly related to the incomes obtained in Spain and have a direct and indissociable link with the activity performed in Spain.

This income is understood to accrue when it is requirable by the lessor or on the collection date, if earlier.
