NIE Numbers For Non-Residents
You will need a NIE number (número de indentificación de extranjeros) to buy property or land in Spain. Basically, it's an identification number for non-residents. If you pay taxes and do a tax declaration or start a business in Spain, you will be classed as a fiscal resident and different tax rates are applied.
Vicens Ash can organise NIE numbers for buying property in the Javea area of Spain. It will cost you 85€ for the NIE number (identification number for foreigners) and registration of this number with the Spanish tax authorities costs 50€.
We will need a photocopy of your passport the Friday before your arrival in Javea. On that Friday, we take it to Denia to obtain an appointment for the following week when you are here.
For the appointment, you must take passport size photos and your original passport. Our rep will take you to Denia and translate during the appointment. You are asigned your NIE number on a provisional paper and once the original NIE document is drawn up, our rep will then collect it for you and you can collect it from our office.
Our rep will then have the NIE numbers registed with 'Hacienda' the Spanish treasurer.
