Should you register for Spanish VAT?

Spain follows the broad EU VAT rules on the requirement for foreign companies to register for local VAT. There are a number of differences, particularly the use of the reverse charge. The principle situations where are :

  • Importing goods into Spain, including if there is an immediate onward supply to another EU country
  • Buying and selling goods within Spain if the supplier and customers are not Spanish company with a VAT registration (reverse charge applies)
  • Selling goods to Spanish consumers over the internet, subject to the Spanish distance selling VAT registration threshold
  • Holding goods in a consignment warehouse in Spain, and therefore deemed holding a permanent establishment
  • Charging admission fees to live events or exhibitions in Spain

Since the 2010 EU VAT Package, there are almost no circumstances where a non-resident VAT registration is required in Spain. Instead, the Spanish customer records the transaction under the reverse charge mechanism.
