    Regulations:Resolution of 18 January 2021, of the Directorate General of the State Tax Administration Agency, defining the procedure and conditions for the payment of debts by means of transfers through collaborating institutions in the collection of taxes entrusted to the State Tax Administration Agency.

    Provided that the accrual corresponds to the financial year 2019 or later, the self-assessment may be submitted, and the resulting tax debt paid by means of a transfer from abroad.

    Beforehand, the self-assessment must be submitted online, choosing the payment method "Debt acknowledgement and payment by transfer".

    The Tax Agency retrieves the data from the previous online filing of the self-assessment, except for the IBAN/code (or, where applicable, BIC/SWIFT) of the account from which the transfer is to be made, which must be filled in by the interested party.

    The system will indicate the IBAN of the destination account and generate a Payment Identifier (valid for 30 calendar days).

    Transfer from the origin account to the destination account, including the Payment Identifier in the field "Transfer Concept".

    Transfers, which must be made in euros, are made to an "Tax Agency transfer account" opened by the collaborating entities that adhere to this procedure, bearing in mind that the account of origin cannot be an account opened at a collaborating entity.

    The collaborating institution must check the AEAT's information against the transfers received and incorporate the transaction data into their systems for subsequent submission to the AEAT.In addition, once they have identified the payment received, they must pay the amount into the corresponding restricted account.

    If it is not possible to identify the details of the transfer received, or if the Payment Identifier does not appear in the field "Transfer Concept" or is incomplete or inaccurate, or if its validity period has expired, or if the payment is made in a currency other than euros, the transfer is to be returned to the sender, and any charges and fees that may be incurred will be borne by the sender.

    For collection purposes, the Public Treasury is deemed to be credited on the date on which one of the restricted accounts is credited, provided that the details of the transfer received have been correctly validated.

    Proof of payment:Proof of payment can be obtained from the Tax Agency's E-Office when the collaborating institution has confirmed receipt of the transfer to the AEAT and the amount has been credited to the corresponding restricted account.For this, obligors must identify themselves correctly and indicate the Payment Identifier.
