Do you have a property in Andalusia? Is it a Tourist Accommodation Home VTA? Is it a Rural Accommodation Home? Do you know that you have an obligation to communicate with the JUNTA DE ANDALUCÍA electronically as of November 19, 2020?
Well yes, you read that right. From November 19th of this year, you have the obligation to interact with the Junta de Andalucía electronically. Therefore, you will not be able to communicate in the traditional way, by presenting written documents on paper or receiving/sending registered certified letters.
IMPORTANT CONSEQUENCE: So, if you have not registered in the system, if the ANDALUSIAN BOARD issues a communication, it will not arrive in a traditional letter. They will try through the electronic mailbox. If you do not appear registered in the electronic mailbox, after the legally established period of 10 days, the communication will be understood as having been notified
Therefore, when ten calendar days have elapsed since the notification was made available, even though you have not accessed its content, it will be considered rejected. This rejection, in accordance with the provisions set out in Article 41.5 of the aforementioned Law 39/2015, will mean that it is understood that the notification process has been fulfilled, so they will go ahead with the procedure.
Therefore, if it is an important communication, for example, in which they ask you for documentation, and you do not respond within the legally established deadline, the consequences can be serious. They can be anything for example from the cancellation of a license for tourist rental, to the levying of fines, and it may even be the case that you find yourself with a possible embargo on your Spanish bank account due to a fine imposed, that you were never aware of.
Keep in mind, that if you do not answer within the legal period, or if you do not send a reply or appeal within the given period of time, then you will not be able to do anything and you will have to bear the consequences, even if they are UNJUST or even if everything you have done is legal.
“DEADLINE NOVEMBER 19, 2020”
DEADLINE: As I have already mentioned, the deadline ends on November 18th. Therefore, as of November 19th, the ruling that you will not receive paper communications comes into effect.
Even when it comes to COMMERCIAL LIMITED COMPANIES (public limited companies, limited companies, etc …) this obligation began on May 19th of this year.
DIGITAL SIGNATURE: As you can imagine, in order to receive these communications and to be able to register in the system, it will be necessary for you to have a DIGITAL SIGNATURE. In this way, the system can make sure that you are the recipient and the person who has received the official communication.
SERVICE OFFERED TO OUR CLIENTS: We imagine, some people are skilled in the electronic and internet world and they can, by their own means, carry out this registration process, and also follow up on possible notifications. However, for those who are not, we offer the service both to register you in the system, as well as to follow up on possible notifications. Do not hesitate to contact us without any kind of commitment.
Even for those of you who are very skilled, I leave you the link to the Junta de Andalucía where everything is explained.
