NIE Number (Tax Identification Number)


A NIE number, which is a Tax Identification Number for foreigners, enables you to file and pay taxes into the Spanish Tax Office. Get a NIE Number in 3 working days. *


It will be required, for example, by all the following:


  • Buying or selling property.
  • Inheriting assets in Spain.
  • Importing/buying/selling a car.
  • Importing/buying/selling a boat.
  • Opening a bank account.
  • Taking out insurance.
  • Working in Spain (only short-term jobs <3 months).
  • Obtaining a mortgage.
  • Some private foreign schools require a NIE number from parents and/or new (foreign) pupils to enrol them!


Basically any activity involving paying taxes requires a NIE number. You cannot complete on a property in Spain without one, either on buying or selling, as the Notary will disallow it.


We can provide this service without you having to come over to Spain personally and queuing up at a Police Station at least two times (for hours on end) by means of a Power of Attorney specific for this purpose.
