I opened a Wise account Juan, purely to send money across after the rates from my previous provider decreased quite a bit, but I do remember you saying about it before. Can you get a Spanish IBAN now? I seem to recall that a majority of direct debits were okay, but official ones (council, utility, etc) wouldn't recognise anything with a non Spanish IBAN.

There was a thread about using Starling as a bank because it offers a euro account, but the problems of IBAN discrimination, not sure if it was ever resolved or not? There were some other ideas about ways to bank and pay direct debits on there, but things seem to have gone quiet in that area now. Would be interesting to see how things have turned out for the people that were trying alternatives.

I received the following today, seems UK is not the only one with increasing energy prices:

Dear Customer,

In the last few days, you will have heard or read news related to the electricity sector in the different media. From Energía XXI, your reference marketer, we want to help you understand how this situation affects you.

The current rate that you have contracted is PVPC (Voluntary Price to the Small Consumer) and it is in the regulated market. This rate changes every day and every hour, and depends on the prices set by the market.

Since September 16, and at least until the end of the year, the Government has approved a series of measures that affect all electricity consumers and directly reduce your bill:

  • The Special Tax on Electricity is reduced. This tax was higher than 5% and, depending on your consumption, it can be reduced to 0.5%.
  • Electricity charges are reduced. These amounts are intended to pay regulated items, which are passed on to consumers' bills.

Your contracted rate, being in the regulated market, is affected by the variability of market prices. Currently the price of electricity is at historical highs. This increase is mainly due to these two causes: the price of gas is rising and the price of CO2 emission rights is rising.

If you need to resolve any questions related to your contract, we put at your disposal our network of service channels .
