EX-15 N.I.E Spanish fiscal number
Whats a NIE number and why do I need it?
Due to COVID-19, currently the system is changed for getting the NIE in the province of Valencia, they are not issuing any new NIE numbers, if you are buying a private owned property, you can buy the property without the NIE, then with a copy of the deeds, go to the local tax office and get a NIF, which you can use to pay the property transfer tax.
But, if you are buying a property from the bank, you will need the NIE straight away, so best to make a previous appointment online to get the NIE either in Alcoy or Benidorm, or via the Spanish consulate in your country, prior to coming to Spain to visit properties.
Fast Track NIE Service.
As there are no NIE´s being issued in Gandia, in the province of Valencia, but now being issued in the province of Alicante, we can now again obtain NIE´s for clients, but the person who wants the NIE, will have to be in the police station where we have obtained the previous appointment, or the person who has powers of attorney.
Due to the time it takes to get the previous appointment, travelling costs and time, waiting time to apply for the NIE and then to collect the actual document, unfortunately we have had to increase the cost to 165 euros.
