A digital certificate in Spain is needed to identify yourself on the internet and to conduct any kind of formal transaction or business. By using the digital certificate, your personal data is protected each time you wish to make an online transaction.
The digital certificate is available for both natural persons and legal entities.
To obtain the digital certificate in Spain, you must go to the website of the Spanish National Mint where you will obtain a unique number that you must keep. With this number, you may access a public institution, such as the Spanish Tax Office, Town Halls, or Social Security, where you will get your digital certificate. The digital signature may be downloaded to your PC from the website where you originally requested the number, that is, the Spanish National Mint.
With this digital certificate, the Spanish Mint offers an easy way to guarantee communications between companies, citizens, institutions and public administrations.
What transactions can be done with the Digital Certificate in Spain?
The different types of formalities that can be done with the digital certificate depend on the different administrations (state, autonomic and local levels).
With the digital certificate, you can carry out different transactions on the websites of public institutions such as any formal type of declaration to the Spanish Tax Office, Social Security or Companies House.
Obtaining your digital certificate means increasing the efficiency of transactions and simplifying the bureaucratic formalities in Spain.
