United Kingdom

Now in force

This agreement, published in the Offical Gazette on 31 March 1975, came into force on 1 April 1975.

Workers moving abroad

As a general rule, expatriated workers are subject to the Social Security legislation of the country where they are working. However, if this is a temporary expatriation, they can remain under Social Security Spanish legislation under the terms and requirements set out below:

This is only applicable to workers, of any nationality, who move to the Island of Jersey or the Isle of Man in the United Kingdom, since Community Regulations are  not applicable there.

Initial transfer

For employees, who work for a Spanish company and are sent by said company to work temporarily in the Island of Jersey or the Isle of Man (United Kingdom), the corresponding expatriation certificate should be applied for at the Provincial Directorate or Administrative Office of the Treasury General of the Social Security.

Self-employed workers cannot avail themselves of the provisions in this section to remain under Spanish Social Security legislation during their expatriation to the Island of Jersey or the Isle of Man (United Kingdom). However, applications can also be made under the terms of the section "Other Exceptions".

Application form

The company will submit its application using form TA.300 "Request for information on applicable Social Security legislation" alongside triplicate copies of form E/UK.1 "Certificate of transfer".

The form issued by the local Provincial or Administrative Office certifies that the worker continues to be subject to Spanish Social Security legislation during his or her stay in that country and therefore is exempt from English Social Security contributions.

Period of authorisation

The maximum length of time for the transfer is twelve months.

Ordinary extension

If workers employed by another person must extend their stay in that country for more than the initial twelve months, the employer must apply, far enough in advance before the end of the period authorised, for an extension to remain under Spanish Social Security legislation, from the General Sub-Directorate for Affiliation, Contributions and Management of the RED System of the Social Security Treasury General.

Application form

The extension application should be made using form TA.300 "Request for information on applicable Social Security legislation" alongside quadruplicate copies of form E/UK.2 "Extension of transfer", to be sent to the other country.

This form is issued by the English Social Security to certify that the worker continues to be subject to Spanish Social Security legislation for the period of time authorised.

Period of authorisation

The maximum length of time for the extension is twelve months.

Other exceptions

Applications for other exceptions will be processed by the Subdirectorate General for Affiliation, Contribution and Management of the RED System of the Social Security Treasury General.

The company or self-employed worker will make their application using form TA.300 "Application for information on applicable Social Security legislation".

Once the Social Security system of the United Kingdom has given its consent, the General Sub-Directorate for Affiliation, Contributions and RED System Management of the Social Security Treasury General will issue form E/UK.1, certifying that the worker remains subject to Spanish Social Security legislation for the authorised period.

Medical Assistance

The Agreement does not include health care in the other country.
