Non Resident Bank Account
Well with 2011 behind us now all Taxes paid. Bring it on 2012.
I have just checked my on-line Spanish Bank Statement.
It shows what sometimes maybe a forgotten payment for Non Residents who hold a Spanish Bank account.
This is the payment for holdingan account in Spain. Paid every 2 years
€6.84 per named account holder.
I bank with Banco Santander

It is important that this payment is made as accounts could be frozen.

When you open an account in Spain you have to show your Passport as you do in UK to prove identity.  As a Non Resident you are not liable to pay tax in Spain so a Non Resident bank account is opened.

Two years from this date you will have to complete a Declaration stating your Non Resident status.  All banks charge for this service and failure to send or hand in Declaration to your bank can result in your bank account being frozen. 

Also when you renew your Passport you will have to take the replacement in to your bank so that they can take a note of your new number.

Your NIE will have your old passport number registered so ensure that you keep this passport should you need to show it as proof of identity.  It may not be necessary but why take a chance.

This is Spain, whenever you think you have the correct amount of paperwork another copy is demanded.  I saw a great clip once which showed someone finally getting one over on the beurocrats or jobsworth as they should be called.

Neither my original NIE cert (white) nor my (Green Paper) EU citizen registration cert (often incorrectly  called a Residencia) show my Passport number.


As the NIE is one’s unique Identification number, why should one’s old passport number matter  ?

\my mistake, the passport number is on the Escuturia (sp) so perhaps you could need it for that.  I kept mine anyway just in case.

Of course that's correct, although I sold a property some years ago using a Temporary Visitors Passport  which I got (at that time ) from the Post Office in UK.  I had bought the property some years before with the passport I had then.   There was no probelm whatsoever.
