The electronic filing of Form 270 requires electronic identification of the taxpayer.In the taxpayer does not have an electronic certificate, the certificate used to file the tax return must be authorised for filing tax returns on behalf of third parties.
For electronic filing it is necessary to have a file of the return to be sent, with the data adjusted to the registry design of Form 270 in force.
When accessing the filing option, Form 270, 2020 and the annual period will be selected by default.Indicate the NIF of the filing tax payer, click on "Read file" and then "Browse" to select the tax return.
From the “Recover” option you can reload the last file validated by the application for that form, financial year and NIF. If you choose to validate a new file by means of the option “Read file”, any previous sending for the selected combination of Form + Financial Year + Period + NIF will be lost, since only the last validation will be recovered.
You will be informed of the name or company name of the taxpayer, NIF and form/financial year. Click on “Validate” to start the file validation.
Once the sending and validation of the file is completed, a summary of the result will be displayed;note that validation does not imply filing of the return.If the file is completely correct, you will be able to file the complete return.Click "Submit correct records", check the "OK" box and click “Sign and send".
You will obtain the corresponding filing receipt in an embedded PDF, which you can save and print, showing the filing information (registration entry number, Secure Verification Code, receipt number, day and time of filing and presenter data).You can download and save the PDF document by clicking “Download document”.
