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.

Dear Sir,

Are you the owner of a property in Spain but a non-fiscal resident? If this is the case, you should know that it is compulsory as per Spanish Legislation to pay a tax to the Spanish Inland Revenue, which is due for owning your property in Spain. This is the Non-Resident Income Tax, which is different to the Real Estate Tax “IBI”, a local tax to be paid to the Local Town Hall of where the property is located.

The Non Resident Income Tax is to be paid to the National Government, being a consequence of owning one or more properties in Spain. In addition, pursuant to a law approved by the governing Council in October2011, atemporary restoration of Wealth Tax has taken place in Spain with the particularity that there is a minimum exemption of 700.000 Euros, taking into account that there is a 10% surplus on a general scale applicable for those properties located in Andalucía.
