Compatibility Report For Tourist Use
The Town hall report of Tourist use compatibility is a new requirement, as the law changed on the 9th July 2018.
We must file the application form and wait until we receive this certificate. We can help you on obtaining it for €100 + VAT.
You can send the copies attached by email. The application form however has to be sent by registered post to our address as we need your original signature on it:

When we receive the licence from the Tourist Office, we send it to you by email.
Signs: Tourist Licence plate
After you get the registration number you must install a sign close to the front door of your property. It shows your registration number on it.
We charge €45 + VAT for a sign.
Tourist Guests registration
Then when you start renting out your apartment you must report the guests’ personal data to the Police. You must go to the nearest Police station to get an user and password to access on line to fill in a list with this data.
We can help you on obtaining these codes for €60 + VAT = €72.60€
Rental Tax in Spain
When you rent out your property being non resident in Spain you have to pay a rental tax every quarter, in January, April, July and October. If you only rent out the property short term you will have to submit the form in the corresponding quarter.
To calculate the tax it is needed the following information:
- NIE of any of the owners
- The rental contract (in the case it is long term rental) (copy)
- Rental dates
- Money received
- Property expenses:
- Council tax (copy of the bill)
- Community fee
- House insurance.
Our fees per person and for a couple are as follows:
ONE QUARTER: €100 (VAT included)
FULL YEAR: €300 (VAT included)
In case you pay for the whole year, this fee includes the non resident tax fee for the following year.
If you pay rental tax one year, the next year when we calculate your non resident tax we will deduct the days you have rented out and calculate the non resident tax for the rest of the days.
This is all quite confusing but we can help you through the process. We are very experienced in dealing with this now and here to assist you.
