Compulsory Electronic notifications by Tax Office

Written by 

For your own benefit, below we show you the report published on the Spanish Tax Authorities' website regarding the compulsory nature of subscribing to the electronic reporting system for certain taxpayers:

"Beginning on the 1st of January 2011, the Tax Authorities will start sending electronic notifications to certain entities (basically anonymous and limited liability companies) on a binding basis. Nevertheless, required entry into the electronic system will be gradual and will not take effect until the Tax Authorities notify the appropriate parties, individually and by traditional means, about the inclusion in this system.

Once you, as a taxpayer, have been included in this system, you will have to gain access by an electronic certificate or eDNI (electronic identification card) to a Provided Electronic Address (Dirección Electrónica Habilitada, DEH) – electronic mailbox, similar to an email address – in which the Spanish Inland revenue will deposit its notifications. Notification will take effect as soon as the company opens it, and if the company doesn’t check its PEA within 10 calendar days, it will still be considered as notified. Additionally, companies might opt for receiving by e-mail a notice informing them that a notification has been sent to their PEA, although this notice will not be understood as received until the company accesses its PEA.

In short, this is a more efficient and safer system for both parties, as guarantees exist for the interested party receiving the notification, avoiding the costs and troubles of the traditional notification by post or Bulletin".
