Any person wishing to purchase a property or have any other fiscal representation in Spain must obtain a foreigners identification number (Numero de Identificación de Extranjero – N.I.E., or commonly referred to as an NIE number) and should appoint a qualified fiscal representative who is resident in Spain to deal with his or her tax affairs.
This identification number is personal to you, is not transferable and does not expire. The NIE consists of nine digits, of which the first and last are letters, with seven numbers in between. Obtaining your identification certificate need not be complicated or time consuming, and part of our service to clients who are purchasing property through TENERIFE PROPERTY SHOP S.L. is to advise and assist you to obtain this.
