Who is obliged to present Form 390?

This declaration must be made by any professional or businessman who carries out an activity subject to VAT. It should be added that since 2014, self-employed workers whose activity is taxed in modules and those dedicated to the leasing of urban real estate have been exempt from submitting form 390.

In addition, since January 1, 2017, large companies, VAT groups and those companies registered in the monthly VAT refund regime are not required to present form 390, because the Tax Agency has its registration books for tax.

Note: the deadline for submitting form 390 of the annual VAT summary is from January 1st to January 30th of the year following the fiscal year.
