Immediate Supply of Information on VAT (SII) in Spain

As of 1 July 2017, all VAT reports and record books in Spain must be sent to the AEAT electronic office in real time.

Comprehensive solution for the Immediate Supply of Information: EDICOMSii

The new Immediate Supply of Information system with the Spanish Tax Authority (AEAT) came into existence on 1 July 2017, affecting more than 62,000 businesses. All VAT reports and record books must now be sent to the AEAT electronic office in real time. As of 1 January 2019, it will also be mandatory for VAT management in the Canary Islands.

EDICOMSii automates the complete process of sending information to the AEAT Spanish tax authority.

We take care of the entire workflow under special security conditions.

Which businesses are affected?

  1. Large companies (annual turnover above €6,010,121.04).

  2. Corporate groups for VAT purposes.

  3. Taxpayers registered in the monthly refund regime (REDEME).

  4. Firms can also voluntarily sign up to this model.

Document deadlines

Issued Invoices

  • Must be submitted within four calendar days of invoice issue and in all cases before the 16th day of each month of the settlement period in which the transactions are included.

Received Invoices

  • Must be submitted within four calendar days of invoice logging in accounts and in all cases before the 16th day of each month of the settlement period in which the transactions are included.

Intra-Community transactions

  • The deadline is four calendar days, calculated from the time when dispatch or shipping begins, or goods are received.

Investment goods

  • Submitted within the period corresponding to the last annual settlement (January 30).

Which format is required?

VAT information must be sent to the SII platform in XML format, consisting of a header with the information on the holder of each record book and a block with the invoice details.

However, AEAT has defined a specific XML schema for each message type, involving an added challenge for businesses.
