VAT Spain & International

Spain has its own type of VAT tax return models

Full compliance is of course the only way

VAT Spain in international perspective

Spain is still different

Although Spain belongs to the European Union, Spain has its own type of VAT tax return models, duties, declaration periods and deadlines and specific information required by the tax authorities to reduce fraud.


Spain unfortunately still has a high level of tax fraud, specially VAT fraud. The tax authorities are of course aware of this and if they detect irregularities they will apply an inspection. This is what both our clients and ourselves want to avoid.

Perfect compliance to avoid inspections

The Spanish tax authorities are known for their unreasonable and even ‘conflictive’ attitude (European study Deloitte). During tax inspections they will not be open for you arguments. If you want to argue, you have to go to the court. It is common that you have to wait several years to get your right.


For companies from other EU members this might be an unpleasant surprise. Our advise to our clients is to comply as strict as possible the Spanish legislation and deadlines.
