Spain SII (Immediate Information Supply) update

The Spanish regime for near-live reporting of invoices, SII (Immediate Information Supply), is to be modified from 1 July 2018.

The system was first introduced on 1 July 2017, requiring all large-sized (over €6million turnover per annum) VAT registered businesses to e-report invoices within 4 days of their issuance.

The changes include:

  • Provision for companies which has still not established their large-sized status with the tax authorities. This includes a unique stamp for their data to indicated reporting requirements are not yet established with the tax authorities
  • An additional code will be available to indicate invoices that exceed the threshold

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.
