i KNOW WHERE THE SCAM IS. YOU HAVE FAILED TO


GIVE AN ANSWER BASED ON KNOWLEDGE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE HONEST TO JUST REFER TO THE TAX OFFICE

Hi Sir

If the bank has take your money its not an scam

They are forced to do it by Law

If they are not the bank who take your money let me know

When the bank pay to the comunity for the money they have in the bank, the bank its forced by law to take out 20 per cent of the profit to pay to spanish tax office in your name

The scamers do noy take money from your account, as ussual

I am sorry you considerer that my answer it not good enought

I will be here if neeeded.

Thank you

YOU HAVE CONFIRMED WHAT I WAS SURE WAS CORRECT,BUT WITH AN INEXPERIENCED COMMITTEE, AND FOR SOME REASON


AN ADMINISTRATOR RELUCTANT TO ACT, I WANTED TO CONFRONT THEM WITH DEFINITIVE ADVICE RE THE APPROACH TO THE TAX OFFICE EG A SPECIFIC FORM OR REFERNCE NUMBER WHICH MUST BE USED.I ASSUME THEY APPLY TO THE OFFICE IN THEIR


IMMEDIATE AREA.


YOU ALSO DID NOT CLARIFY IF THERE WAS FACILITY FOR THE COMMUNITY TO BE REGISTERED FOR PAYMENT WITHOUT TAX DEDUCTION. WE ARE ABLE TO DO THIS IN THE UK--YOU COMPLETE A REGISTRATION FORM WHICH BANK SENDS TO TAX OFFICE WHO CHECK THAT THIS IS IN ORDER.

Well Sir

 

The law (Orden EHA/3290/2008, de 6 de noviembre) allow to no resident persons to file the

forms 216 y 296 in order to declare they are no residents so the bank will no take the 20 per cent of the profits

 

Here you got all the information

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

TWO OUTSTANDING POINTS FOR REPLY


1. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A NON TAXABLE BODY SUCH AS THE


COMMUNITY TO REGISTER FOR GROSS PAYMENTS--IE NO


TAX DEDUCTION: OR IS IT THE CASE BANK WILL ALWAYS


DEDUCT TAX, LEAVING THE FORMER TO APPLY FOR A REFUND?


 


2. ARE REFUND APPLICATIONS MADE TO A LOCAL TAX OFFICE, OR TO A SPECIALIST OFFICE FOR SUCH MATTERS.


 


3. YOU AGREE EVERY BANK MUST ISSUE A CERTIFICATE FOR THE TAX YEAR SHOWING GROSS INTEREST/TAX DEDUCTED/NET


INTEREST PAID.


 


Three questions, and with three answers we can conclude.


 


 

Hi

I think that the bank never its going to allow you not to charged your account with the taxes because the law forces them to do it

So, the answer for you its to ask them each year the accounts they have token from you account and make the tax declaration in order to get your money back

The taxes always are to be declarated to the AEAT spoanish tax oficce

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You have not answered point 3.


What does AEAT stand for?

Hi

For sure, the bank always have to send and actually they send the certificate with the sums declared and retained

Thank you
