I'm posting this now so that you can practice getting into the system before the whole thing goes live on April 1st.

Agencia Tributaria have now gone live on the first part of their 2019 tax return system - Renta 2019. Although this first part doesn't allow you to actually do a tax return, it enables you to check what data they've got about you.

Those people who have an electronic certificate, or [email protected] PIN, will be able to get into the tax return system without having to jump through any hoops.

The facility for anyone who didn't submit a tax return last year to get into the online tax return system has been dropped, presumably because that system wasn't very secure.

Others who submitted a 2018 tax return will only be able to get into the system if they first obtain a reference number.

To do that, go to:

https://www.agenciatributaria.es/AEAT.internet/Renta.shtml

Click on:

'Obtenga su número de referencia'.

Enter your NIE number, and a box will appear asking you to 'Introduzca el Número de Soporte'.

Your Número Soporte is based on the number that you'll find on your residency certificate. On the older A4 green paper certificates it's on the top right; if you've  a credit card sized certificate, it's at the bottom right.

A Número de Soporte has to be nine characters. If the number on your residency is only seven characters, then your Número Soporte is that number preceded by C0. For example, if your certificate has the number: 1234567, you would enter C01234567.

Enter your number and click on 'Continuar'.

On the next page, click on 'Obtener Referencia con casilla 505'.

Enter the amount shown in box 505 of your 2018 return, remembering that in Spain you use a dot instead of a comma, and vice versa, so 5,123.50 has to be entered as 5.123,50.

Click on 'Obtener Referencia'.

You get a popup giving you a six digit reference number which you'll need to get into the tax return system, so make a note of it. If you should lose it, you can repeat the process again.

Once the full system goes live on April 1st, you can then get into the system to do your tax return, check and update your personal data etc.

Hi Jim, will you be doing a 2019 tax return guide, or should we use your 2018 guide?

Hi Jim,

Many thanks.  As you know, Abaco do our tax returns.  Last year, they submitted a joint return, the year before it was individual returns.  In order to do them ourselves, I assume we need to obtain individual reference numbers?

Kind regards,

Kim

I do intend to do a guide, as box numbers etc will have changed, plus there are a couple of errors in the 2018 guide.

It's a good question Kim, but I don't know the answer yet.

If you were going to go into the system and do two separate returns, then you would each need a reference number.

However, if the system hasn't changed from last year, then only one person will need access. That's because the system allows information for both spouses to be entered in one session. At the end of inputting data, the system will then tell you whether it is cheaper to do a joint or individual returns.

As part of checking out the system described above, I got reference numbers for both of us.
