IMPORTANT: "REAL TIME"
VAT Spain rates and returns
VAT must be paid by SMEs on a quarterly basis in Spain and by the large company on a monthly basis. You will find rates and general information below. First we let you know about real time obligations:
Important: “Real Time”
Spain has introduced a system of almost “real-time” delivery of VAT information in July 2017.
This system is relevant for the following companies that have to file a VAT return every month:
- Companies registered in the Register of monthly VAT returns (REDEME).
- Companies that have invoiced more than 6 million euros in the previous financial year.
- Tax units
More English-language information about this can be read in Major changes VAT declarations Spain.

Recovery can be standard (under the ‘regular regime’) only in January. Usually the VAT is refunded after about five months or a message is received that an inspection will take place.
Companies can request the tax authorities to qualify for a special regime (also known as the export regime) which must be filed monthly, but which also means that VAT can be reclaimed monthly.
