Treasury notifications are notices sent by the Tax Agency in order to inform us, request a document or notify us of any process,and depending on the type of notification, you must act in one way or another.

Therefore, not all Treasury notifications are bad,so don’t lose your nerve until you check what notification it is.

Aware of the fear that exists when receiving a request from the Treasury, in this post we will tell you the different types of treasury notifications that you can receive,and how to act before each of them.

The tax treasury notifications you can receive

1 – Communicative letter

The Tax Agency may send letters that do not require response or intervention. It would then be a simple notification from the Information Finance.

However, the letters of the Tax Agency are certified, so their receipt must be signed,in order to verify that The Treasury has informed you.

It is of great importance to receive them and that they are not rejected, because if they try to send them to a person and the person does not receive it, it will be recorded in the notifications section of the Treasury in the BOE.

Once the person has received the communication, the notices of the Treasury will be read. In the event that the information reflected in the notification is not understood, it is advisable to
hire a specialized tax

2 – Check

The AEAT can also send a notification as a check,which can be of three types:

  • Requirement Notifications
    : This is the slightest notification that can be received. It is only to present to the Tax Agency the documentation that it requires. This happens when the data held by the Treasury do not match those expressed by the cooperator. Therefore, the person must justify that what is presented by him is the exact and that it is the Administration that is wrong.

All documentation to be submitted will have to be made at the place and the deadline indicated by the notification. If your submission is delayed or not done, it will be a penalty.

In response to this notice from the Treasury,we must always respond and provide the information/documentation requested from us, within the prescribed period,which is usually 10 days. If everything is in order, the procedure is terminated; and if there were some kind of mistake, a new one would start to correct it.

  • Notifications of proposal for interim settlement and formalities of claims:
    in such notifications, Hacienda tells us that it modifies or corrects, in its opinion, any statement that we have submitted.

If we do not agree with these changes, “allegations” must be submitted to this notice in order to act, and always within the time limit set to do so.

  • Procedure resolution notifications :
    this type of notifications, become the final communication to the previous two. Once we have submitted the corresponding claims, Hacienda sends us a notification with the resolution and agrees to a settlement (if applicable).

If we are not happy with this resolution, we may appeal within the prescribed time limit, which is usually one month.

3 – Request for information regarding another person

The Treasury may also send a notification requesting information about a company or individual,which may be a customer, customer or supplier, with which you have been related. You must respond within the set timeframe indicated in the notification, providing the information or informing you that you do not have it.

4 – Rush Providence

rush providence is a
notification from the Tax Agency that is made in case there is a tax debt. Treasury management bodies use this procedure to collect this debt after the end of the corresponding voluntary payment period.

The provision of apremio entails a debt surcharge and also generates interest on the delay in the payment of that debt.

5 – Embargo diligence

embargo procedure is
a notice in which the Tax Agency requires information about the amount owed to a vendor.

The purpose is to enter the amount into the Tax Agency for the purpose of covering the value of the provider’s debt to the Public Treasury.

It is very important to know how to act on a stagecoach. It is necessary to answer,because if it is not done it is possible to have serious consequences.

Only debts due since the date of communication and outstanding will be required to disburse debts from the date of communication. The person receiving the diligence will only have to enter what they owe their supplier.

6 – Start communication of tax inquiry

The communication of initiation of tax investigation is probably the most feared report of the Treasury. This is the review of the documentation that is linked to the Treasury, as well as the communication that a Tax Inspection is initiated.

This inspection can berandom, affecting not only suspicious taxpayers, but also taxpayers randomly. Moreover, it may be due to the origin of certain doubts raised by the inspectors,affecting the monetary situation due to fraud.

This notification reports the com initiation of the proceedings and the subpoena of the tax to appear before the Tax Administration.

In this way, all necessary documentation must be submitted and, if the error has been of the Administration, documents verifying that the Treasury had the wrong data on the income or tax circumstance must be submitted.

Once the required documentation has been provided, a documentation will beprocessed. With the certification, the inspector will decree and finalize the facts that have been investigated and conclude the situation of the same, clarifying it through an act that will inform the interested party.

7 – Notification of sanctioning file

This case involves confirmation of a certain type of infringement that is not justified. For this reason, a notification is received informing the beginning of a sanctioning file.

This procedure is initiated when the tax rules have not been duly complied with.

The sanctioning file shall be communicated by means of a message containing certain information on the file being opened,to what type of tax the proposal for the penalty belongs to and the amount which is made.

This message is received by email,where information is reported about the opening of the document, indicating that the penalty is not fixed yet.

It therefore provides an opportunity to appear defending the file in the event that you do not agree with the actions expressed by the Treasury.

To do so, it is necessary to provide the Tax Agency with a manifesto that includes the disagreement, as well as the documents that may reinforce the explanation.

What not to do with the notifications of the Tax Agency?

Regardless of the type of notification received, you should always view the Treasury notifications and respond. Depending on the notification received, the Tax Agency itself will tell us how to act, as well as the deadlines in which we will have to do so. Complying with what we are told is always the best option, even when the notices of the Treasury are bad, otherwise the consequences will be more serious.


In case of receiving notifications from the Treasury and not knowing how to act, it is advisable to contact a tax expert. Also, if you are afraid of receiving an inspection by the AEAT and/or do not know if you meet all tax obligations, a tax audit will help you detect irregularities and allow you to solve them.
