Tourist Guests registration in Murcia
Please remember we can of course do this for you too.
The process is that when you start renting out your apartment in Spain you must report the guests’ personal data to the Police.
You or your representatives need to go to the nearest Police station “Guardia Civil”. Here you can get access to the relevant website. You will be assigned a username and password to access online where you will fill the information.
We can help you on obtaining the Tourist Licence codes. The fees are not expensive, but sometimes we literally need to go a couple of times to the Guardia Civil- All can be discussed for you.
Rental Tax in Murcia – 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:
- Copy NIE of any of the owners
- A copy of the rental contract (in the case it is long term rental)
- Rental dates
- Money receivedProperty 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 in 2019, next year 2020 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 know there are people offering cheaper services. These people are not qualified to do so. We know how long the process takes, what is involved in doing it correctly and what do our clients really need.
You can of course compare our service to that of others- We encourage our clients to so. Just to reiterate- this is not easy, and you need to do it correctly. You wouldn’t go to Dentist who knows quite a bit about teeth, you ́’ll go to the guy or gal who knows it all. Think the same way with yourrental property in Spain!!
