Spain ends annual European Sales Lists

  • Apr 13, 2020 | Richard Asquith

Spain has withdrawn the possibility for annual European Sales Listings. These ESL are a pan-EU requirement to sales of goods or services on a cross-border basis with other EU businesses.

The Spanish ESL, modelo 349, is now scrapped; instead, businesses must complete more frequent modelo 340 ESL filings. The frequency should tie to the VAT return – monthly or quarterly – which in turn vary for small and large (turnover >€6 million per annum) taxpayers.

Need a fiscal representative in Spain?

Non-EU businesses selling in Spain will need to appoint a fiscal representative alongside completing VAT registration and returns.
Fiscal representatives are responsible for the accurate VAT submissions of their non-EU clients.
Avalara offers a Fiscal Representative Service as part of its international VAT and GST Registration and Returns Service.
