    I want to know whether it is necessary to register a separate Spanish NIF/VAT to export from Spain when we already have a valid EORI registered for the company.

    Previously we were able to export from Germany, Italy and UK with EORI without a problem, but it seems Spain might have a special requirement.

    I don't speak Spanish and the Spanish customs office does not have the English language option.

    If anyone is experienced in dealing importing /exporting from Spain to non-EU countries. Please help.

    Many thanks in advance.

    For anyone who is also interested in this topic.
    We dug to the bottom of this matter.
    Spain has a special rule that the EORI has to be linked to a Spanish VAT number, regardless of paying VAT or not. Other European countries do not have this requirement. :mad:

    If your business is not established in Spain, you will also require a local presence for VAT filings. It is certainly more complex than other EU member states.

    Let me know if you need any assistance
