On 1 July 2018, the Spanish SII system changes. Several technical modifications become in force.

  • Two marks to identify simplified 'qualified' invoices (those identifying the recipient), as well as full invoices in where identifying the recipient, is not mandatory.
  • A new code to identify invoices issued by third parties (special self-invoicing provisions for the energy sector).
  • A new code for the collection/payment method to identify collections and payments implemented through direct debit orders.
  • A new invoice code called 'LC': 'Customs – complementary settlement' This code only applies for additional VAT assessments based on DUA’s tax inspections.
  • Some labels will be renamed to provide greater clarity and legal accuracy in designations.
  • .... and more

The changes will be updated in the SII SAP add-on during the 12 months free maintenance period after go-live. After that free maintenance period our clients can opt for an annual contract to continue such support.
