Application for the Tax Identification Number

The application for the Tax Identification Number (NIF) does not form a part of the process for the incorporation of a company, although it is absolutely necessary to obtain it, as the NIF is required for seeking registration in the Mercantile Registry and through it, the company will be fully identified for tax purposes, independently of any changes it may undergo, except for a change in its legal form.

The application can be made once the deed of incorporation has been executed, and prior to the payment of the Transfer Tax and Stamp Duty, at the Taxation Administration or, otherwise, at the Delegation of the Government Tax Administration Agency corresponding to the company's domicile for tax purposes, by means of the presentation of the following documents:

  • Standard form (036) completed and signed by all of the founders.
  • Plain copy or photocopy of the company's deed of incorporation.
  • Photocopy of the National Identity Card of the person signing the application, in the case of a company director, or a photocopy of the relevant power of attorney, if an attorney for the company signs.

If the documentation submitted is in order, the company will be assigned a provisional Identification Number, which will appear on the provisional tax identification card.

The assignment of this Tax Identification Number will be valid for six months, during which time the company should collect its definitive tax identification card, by submitting the provisional card, the first copy of the deed of incorporation after registration in the Mercantile Registry and a photocopy of the first copy of the deed.

The standard form used in order to apply for the Tax Identification Number is the same as the form for the census declaration.

If the application for the NIF is made before the deed is available, it will be necessary to provide a private company agreement containing the essential details of the company and of the founders, attaching a photocopy of all of their individual National Identity Cards (DNI).
