If you are a taxpayer in Spain, you may have heard of Form 123. It is the document used to declare withholdings and deductions from the income for individuals and legal entities in Spain, including non-residents. This form is essential for companies, whether large corporations or small businesses, to pay their taxes on time. In this article, we will look at what Form 123 is and how to complete it in Spain.
What is Form 123?
Form 123 is a tax return that must be completed and sent to the Tax Agency by all individuals, companies and other entities subject to Personal Income Tax (IRPF), Corporate Income Tax or Non-Resident Income Tax. The form is used to declare and pay taxes related to specific capital income or certain types of income.
Companies must file the declaration quarterly, while individuals and non-residents must file annually. The Form 123 provides the Tax Agency with detailed information on all the income obtained, deductions and withholdings.
Who must file Form 123?
Form 123 is mandatory for any natural person, legal entity or organization that must pay Personal Income Tax, Corporate Tax or Non-Resident Income Tax. This includes, among others, the self-employed, sole traders, small businesses and large corporations.
In addition, any company that has to pay dividends to its shareholders must also present Form 123.
When should Form 123 be submitted?
The deadlines for submitting Form 123 vary depending on the type of taxpayer and the amount of income obtained.
Companies and individuals with income greater than 6,010,121 euros have to submit their returns quarterly. On the other hand, those with income less than this amount have to submit it annually. All declarations must be filed within 20 days of the end of the quarter.
