Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / Tax Return
Spanish term or phrase: capital mobiliario
Tax Return (San Sebastian)

My question is whether to use the term "capital" or "assets" here and whether it's best to avoid the term "movable" and say "non-property". It's for a UK audience.

Thanks very much in advance.

investment income

In the context of Spanish personal/individual income tax (IRPF--Impuesto sobre la renta de personas físicas), "rendimientos de capital mobiliario" is generally translated as "investment income" (includes dividends paid on shares, interest on other investments, etc.).

You can translate the other concepts as follows:

Rendimientos de trabajo--earned income; salary income
Rendimientos de capital inmobiliario--rental income
Rendimientos de actividades económicas--business income

Hope this helps.

Hi, to answer your question, it is my understanding that capital gains are reported under a different section of the Spanish income tax return called "ganancias y pérdidas patrimoniales" (capital gains and losses).

Notes to answerer
Asker: That's helpful, Rebecca. Does "rendimientos de capital inmobiliario" only include rental income or could it also include capital gains from the sale of a property?

agree  philgoddard: Good answer. And no, income is not the same as capital gains.
