If you are yet to make an Income Statement, obtaining a digital certificate is integral to carry out this procedure and various others. Earlier, we explained how to request it, however, you had to verify your identity in person. Now, here’s some good news. Thanks to the new service launched by the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre (FNMT), you can request the digital certificate without physically visiting any office.
The process is 100% online and can be initiated through a computer or mobile device. It costs €2.99 plus taxes, which are well worth it considering the time saved. Moreover, this service is perfect for requesting the mail-in vote for the forthcoming general elections of 23J. We tried it out for ourselves, and it works perfectly without any issues. After submitting the request with my mobile and paying the required fee, I only have to wait for a few days for the FNMT to validate my documentation and issue me the certificate.
