I have always paid my notional rental tax in cash at the bank in Spain. However, I shall not be in Spain prior to the deadline this year and would like my bank to pay the tax direct from my current account. I believe that there is an instruction line on the form and I know of two other people who email the form to their Spanish bank (Cajamar) with the appropriate authorisation and have no problems getting it paid from their account.
Via the Halifax and Lloyds International, my account is now with Banco Sabadell. I have, in the last two months, twice faxed them concerning a change of address and three times faxed asking if they will pay the notional rental tax from my account, if I email or fax them the completed forms. I have yet to receive a response.
Last week, I tried a telephone call and was told, very bluntly, that I had to pay the tax myself electronically. i.e., it seemd they did not want to pay it from my account. They are willing to take it in cash and pay it, but it seems, not transfer it from my account. Senseless.
Has anyone had the same problem? Succeeded without a problem? Any advice on how to get Sabadell to do this simple thing? Perhaps a recommendation for a more user friendly bank in the Elviria area?
