Value Added Tax in local language is "Impuesto sobre el Valor Añadido" (IVA)

Due date of Spanish VAT returns

As a general rule, Spanish VAT returns must be submitted and paid by the 20th day of the month following the reporting period. Exceptionally, the December and fourth quarter VAT return are due by the last day of January following the reporting period. If the due dates fall on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the date is shifted to the next working day.

Companies filing VAT returns monthly, i.e. all companies subscribed to the SII, must submit their VAT return by the 30th day of the following month. Exceptionally, the January VAT return must be submitted by the 28th February.

The 2018 due dates for all taxes in Spain is published (in English) in the tax authorities’ website.

Regarding bank holidays in Spain, as there are several differences per region, we suggest taking into account only those bank holidays that apply in the whole Spanish territory. In any case, the due date calendar published by the authorities every year includes all these dates. You can access here the official national and regional bank holidays in Spain.
