NIE number

Post by magpie69 » June 19th, 2020, 3:06 pm

Having sold our apartment in Menorca, do we need to cancel our NIE’s?

Thanks, Kieron
Thought it would be ok to just leave it, but wasn’t sure if the Spanish taxman would find some way of squeezing something out of us.

NIE is nothing more than a tracking number. If you are no longer on the island it is of no significance - anything less than 183 days spent on the island means you are no longer a tax resident - HMRC will hunt you down instead.
