Hi! I'm about to become a Platinum member and in the subscription form I'm asked to write my VAT number. I'd like to know wether I already have it being an 'autónomo' worker in the Spanish finances or wether I have to ask for it...
Thank you all in advance!!!

DNI Feb 1, 2005

Yes, normally you have a VAT position if you are "autónomo", but in Spain it will be the same as your DNI, so I think you can already provide it, though you have nt asked for a VAT position yet.

sorry Feb 1, 2005

I did not read very carefully and I understood you were not autonomo yet: in case you already are, of course you have a VAT number, it is the number you use to invoice.
Sorry.
Elena

EU VAT number Feb 1, 2005

Hi

In Spain, you just use your NIF. If you're dealing with an EU company outside Spain you need to register using a 036 form at Hacienda as an "operador intracomunitario". The number you get is simply an ES followed by your NIF, but if you register it means that your number appears on the EU site http://europa.eu.int/comm/taxation_customs/vies/es/vieshome.htm which companies check before they agree not to charge you VAT. Even if you're not dealing with an EU company, it's worth registering now, as although the process is very simple it takes Hacienda more than a week to process the number, and you may need it in a hurry at a later date.

Good luck
