Forms 190 to 198Skip information index
To electronically file form 196, you need to log in with an electronic certificate or DNI issued in the name of the taxpayer.If the taxpayer does not have an electronic certificate, the person filing must be authorised to file returns on behalf of third parties, either by being registered as a social partner or by being authorised to do so.
The filing is made using TGVI online, a system that validates whether the file contains correct and incorrect records, allowing the partial filing of the correct records, downloading a file with the incorrect records and a file with the details of the errors so that, once they have been corrected, they can be sent by means of supplementary tax returns.
Before submitting your tax return, we recommend that you check the list of your recipients using the tax identification service to avoid identification errors.To do so, you can use the option available on the website:"Verification of a NIF of third parties for census purposes" located in "Help services", "Tax identification" of the section "Informative declarations campaign 2022".
This consultation can also be found in the procedures for form 030 under "Censos, NIF y domicilio fiscal" in the section "Información y gestiones".
For electronic filing it is necessary to have a file of the return to be sent, with the data adjusted to the registry design of Form 196 in force.
When accessing the filing, Form 196 will be selected by default. Select the financial year 2022, you will only need to indicate the NIF of the taxpayer.As it is an annual return, the following will appear by default in the period box:“Annual,”
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.If you choose to validate a new file by means of the option “Read file”, any previous sending for the selected combination of Form + Financial Year + Period + NIF Tax ID will be lost, since only the last validation will be recovered.
The name or business name of the taxpayer, NIF and form/year shall be reported;click on "Validate" to start the file validation.
Once the sending and validation of the file is completed, a summary of the result will be displayed;note that validation does not imply filing of the return.If the file is completely correct, you will be able to file the complete return.Click "Submit correct records", check the "OK" box and click “Sign and send".
