Hello. Ola. We have just moved to Mallorca. We found a proeprty to rent online, and like what we saw and paid the estate agent's fees that they quoted to us. We got the contract via email and got it translated and all was fine. On the day we moved in, 2 months later - the agents handed us another bill of 300 euros for IVA. Now whilst I am fully aware that IVA is a legal requirement, surely this should have been adde 2 months ago when we paid their bill, or surely the orginal bill should have said IVA NOT included and will be charged to you upon moving in? Can they do this or are they trying it on? It doesnt mention this either in the contract. The email clearly said their fees were 1400 euros, which we paid and no mention was made about the IVA, we assumed it was included at the time. 

Kind thanks

All profesional fees and commissions are plus IVA in Spain, I can understand why you are peeved though getting the additional bill. Maybe at first they thought you were paying in cash so they could just pocket the money and then you payed by bank transfer or by some other form that has created a record and now requires a invoice (factura)

Hi there. Thank you so much for the reply! Should they not have billed us though the IVA bill 2 months ago at the same time? other than that, loving the Mallorcan life (except the mosquitos!)

I would not pay it as it should have been on the original invoice - make them chase you for it as far you dare

typical of estate agents here in Sain 99.9% crooks and ALL are very dodgy geezers

In the UK a VAT registered company must charge out at the agreed charge plus VAT, I would be inclined to send a copy of the invoice to the IVA office.

Was the original amount payed covered by an official invoice though or just a scrappy receipt from a book bought from the nearest Chinese Bazaar, this is what we don't know.
