Form 188 Filing by file
Form 188 can be submitted via files through the TGVI system online.This submission path is available for large files, necessarily for those that exceed 40000 records, although files with any number of records can be submitted.Therefore, it will be necessary to have a file with the tax return to be sent, with the data adjusted to the published registry design.
We remind you that the available submission methods, web form and file, are mutually exclusive;i.e. the first tax return submitted conditions the entry route of the rest of the tax returns.
As the submission of incorrect or unidentified entries will not be accepted, we recommend that you do not postpone submissions and allow sufficient time to correct erroneous entries.Likewise, in order to avoid identification errors, we recommend that you previously purge the taxpayer census of each company through the Tax Identification service.
The filing of Form 188 requires identification with an electronic certificate, electronic DNI or Cl@ve PIN of the declarant or of a person or entity authorised to file on behalf of third parties:corporate partner or proxy.If you are going to use a certificate or DNI electronic, click on the link "Access with certificate or DNI electronic" and, if you are going to use Cl@ve PIN, enter DNI or NIE in the corresponding field and the contrast data.
Fill in the NIF of the taxpayer and verify the data in the fields "Form" and "Fiscal year".
To send a file, click on "Read File” and then "Select file to validate” to select the file.
From the “Recover” option you can reload the last file validated by the application for that form, financial year and NIF.
Make sure that the data is correct and click on "Validate" to send the file.
During the sending, two progress bars will appear informing the validation percentage of both the file and the records.
At the end of the sending, the summary of the validation result is displayed.
If the validation is correct, you will be able to process the submission and obtain the corresponding receipt.If errors are detected, the breakdown of correct and incorrect records will be included and the options "Submit correct records”, "Download incorrect records” and "Download error messages” will be available.
Submitting correct records

Incorrect records that have not been submitted must be subsequently corrected for submission by supplementary tax return.
Download incorrect records
With this option you can download a text file (adjusted to the published design) with all the incorrect records.
The downloaded file will be updated to be consistent with the number of records included.In addition, the type 1 register (taxpayer and summary) will already include its own identification number, the supplementary mark and the receipt of the previous filing.
This file is to be corrected and filed.It does not contain information about the errors detected.
Download error messages
The downloaded text file contains the details of the errors detected for each erroneous type 2 record (Recipient or insured).Each line will show an incorrect detail record with its corresponding error message.You need to move the scroll bar to the end of the lines in order to display the error codes and descriptions.
This file is for information only.It will be useful to identify the errors detected and correct them before submitting them.
