Electronically filing Form 616

  • Form 616 can be submitted via file through TGVI online.This submission path will be available for large files, although files with any number of records can be submitted.

    Using this option, if the file contains correct records along with incorrect ones, you can partially submit the correct records and download the incorrect records, as well as the reason for the error, to a TXT file and then, once the errors have been corrected, send them out via supplementary tax returns.

    We recommend that you clean up the register of the taxpayers by the Tax identification Service prior to filing the return to avoid identification errors.

    It will be necessary to have a file with the tax return to be sent, with the data adjusted to the published registry design.

    Fill in the required data in the initial window.

    The "Recover" button will show the information of the last file validated for the same NIF, year and period.To send a new file, click "Read file" and then "Browse", to select the file.
