Registration as self-employed in Spain

This entails a series of obligations and administrative procedures with different organizations that, although simple, can be laborious. If you are thinking of starting a business, we tell you what are the first steps to follow:

The first of the obligations of the self-employed before starting their activity is to register with the Tax Authorities.  The census declaration (forms 036 and 037) must be presented, in which the options of taxation in the IRPF, VAT regime, location of the business, activity to which it is going to be dedicated and the date of beginning of the operations will be notified. Whenever there is a variation in these data, the form 036 or 037 will have to be filed again. It is carried out in the Administration of the Tax Agency corresponding to the domicile where the activity is carried out.

Form 037 is a simplified form of form 036 that can be used by most of the self-employed, for it, they must fulfill certain conditions, among which we emphasize, to have assigned a NIF, not to act by means of representative, its fiscal domicile must coincide with the one of administrative management, they must not be included in the special VAT regimes (with the exception of the simplified regime, the special regime for agriculture, livestock and fishing or the special equivalence surcharge regime), they must not be registered in the register of intra-Community operators or in the monthly VAT refund register (REDEME).
