The NIE, required before making large purchases in Spain, is valid for just 3 months from the date of issue. Having recently completed the purchase of a house should I renew this NIE, is there a process for acquiring a permanent number or can I simply forget about the matter?
As a UK citizen non-resident to Spain who owns a property in Spain I understand that I have some small taxes to pay the Spanish Government each year. Again, do I need a tax reference of some sort? If so, how do I acquire this?
