Marbella town hall, in conjunction with the Foreign Residents department, has organised an informative talk for British residents in the town regarding Brexit and its possible effects on UK nationals living in Spain.

The Palacio de Ferias y Congresos Adolfo Suárez will host the event, called Dealing With Brexit, on Tuesday 12 November from 5pm. Numerous experts in immigration and tax matters will take part in the event which aims to "shine light on some of the uncertainty caused by Brexit", according to the councillor responsible for Foreign Residents, Remedios Bocanegra.

During the event, which will be in English and Spanish, topics such as Gibraltar, travel, the fluctuation of the pound and the application of the Ley de Extranjería law to non-EU citizens will be discussed.

The talk will be presided over by the British consul to Andalucía, Charmaine Arbouin; Ricardo Bocanegra, lawyer and specialist in matters affecting foreign residents; and two members of the consulting firm UHY Fay &Co -the director of the tax department, Inmaculada Domecq, and managing partner, Bernard Fay.

"These talks are aimed at the community of international residents of our town, especially those from the United Kingdom. However, anyone who is interested can attend, regardless of nationality," said the councillor.

Remedios Bocanegra also stressed that there is an office for international resident care, which has itself launched a similar department aimed specifically at British people, "a community with around 4,000 people registered in our town, although the [real] figure is higher."
