NIE Number certification

Breaking news regarding Spanish bureaucratic procedures!

The Nie number that appears at the Spanish Nie certificate is a Spanish Fiscal Identification number for non Spanish nationals (“Real Decreto 557/2011, de 20 de abril, por el que se aprueba el Reglamento de la Ley Orgánica 4/2000, sobre derechos y libertades de los extranjeros en España y su integración social”). This certification does not show or proof whether you are Spanish tax resident or non Tax Resident in Spain and is only a number that identifies you as an individual in front of National, regional or local Spanish Inland Revenue. 

As from 17th April 2012,  some of the  Spanish local National Police station (comisaría de policía nacional) are authorizing again the use of a Power of Attorney in order to apply for the mentioned NIE number certification on behalf of a client.

This means that it is possible again to assist a client with the application and collection of the NIE number when a sufficient power of attorney is in place.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Spanish legal advise firm Arcos & Lamers Asociados, your lawyer in Marbella, tel:+34952775010 in the event you need any further information or assistance towards the application of the mentioned NIE number or any other Spanish Legal and Tax advice.
