The registration involves the filling of a “Declaración Responsable” (acknowledgment of responsibility) and presenting the requested information in the Tourism Dept in your province.
In LimitConsulting we have prepared a Registration Pack that will allow you to concentrate on your rental business with peace of mind.
There is no need to register as self-employed. No social security payment is required.
Tax residents declare their income annually through their tax return (RENTA) Nonresidents need to file a tax form every quarter in which there are rental incomes.
Yes. The requirements and paperwork are the same in this case. It is mandatory that the owner resides in the house. In other words, you cannot rent a property by rooms unless it is your own residency.6.Do I have to make a contract and collect the passport of each visitor, even for 1 night?
Yes. Hotels, for example, need to send this information to local police for every booking. For the moment, all passports and booking information must be kept for one year.7.How do you help me to run my rental business?
We have made available templates and copies of documents that you may use to comply with the legal requirements. We include you in our special alert to advise you of changes in the legislation. We are happy to answer your questions too.
