Hi. I'm afraid that you cannot pick where you pay tax. If you are a resident of Spain, you are liable to Spanish tax on your UK pensions unless they are derived from government service jobs as listed here. Articles 17 and 18 of the UK/Spain tax treaty here deal with pensions. Spanish tax residency is defined here. I hope this clarifies your position but let me know if you have any further questions.

I can only call a landline in Spain. Calls to landlines from the UK are 60p per minute and 90p per minute to mobiles. There should be enough information in my written answer for you not to need a phone call, however.
