Saw this on David Jackson's website;

"Got a non resident bank account? If you do, you MUST ensure your bank has a digital copy of your ID before the 15th of December, or your account will be suspended, meaning your bills will bounce and no transactions will take place. Depending on the bank, utility bills and standing direct debits will probably continue to be honoured, but you won’t be able to transfer cash out of the account.

The warning comes as banks remind their customers that under the Ley 10/2010, de Prevencion de Blanqueo de Capitales, the deadline is fast approaching."

Has anybody received anything from their bank or know of this rule / law ?.

We always confirm our Non-residence status with our bank, every 2 years and they complete the forms and notify the authorities.

Hi

A friend of ours just texted me details of this on the Spectrum FM website, it was the first I've heard of it, my Bank (Bankia) hasn't been in touch with me and I've just also been onto Internet banking and I have no unread correspondence from them.

The annoying thing is, (if it's true) we only returned from Mojacar today and won't be returning until the new year!

Done a bit more research and found this on BBVA's website;

"All financial institutions are required to have a scanned document of certain of our customers to verify their identity back, economic or professional activity or source of funds, according to Law 10/2010 on Prevention of Money Laundering.
Failure to comply with this legal requirement may force us to cancel all accounts contracted by clients who do not provide such documentation.

DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED
Therefore, in order to continue offering our services to our customers , we need your assistance in obtaining the required documentation.
Documents that may be required are:
Identification document (DNI, NIE, Passport, etc.)
Statement of Economic Activity (DAE). Documents to be completed and signed by the customer where their declarations regarding their trade are collected, either in the office or through your Client Login in bbva.es (My Profile).
Document certifying the economic or professional activity . Depending on the client, or activity, you must provide one or other of those listed below:
Current payroll Receipt (not older than 3 months).
Employment certificate issued by the employer.
Certificate of salaries, pension or allowance.
Income tax return last year.
Current labor contract.
Declaration Census Forced Tax (Form 036).
High activity in the Treasury (Tax License).
Last quarterly or annual VAT or income tax withholding statement.
Last receipt of the professional association.
Receipt of Social Security in the regime of self (not older than 3 months).

For more information, BBVA line 902 22 44 66 or contact manager usual."

I would think that if your bank have a copy of your current passport, it should be OK.
This has nothing to do with the Non-residents declaration.
If anyone knows better, please post a reply.
Cheers.

Dave

Hi Dave

Thanks for bringing this to our attention

I checked with our bank - Sabadell - and they confirmed they're contacting non-res customers and will require up to date copies of passports.

Will wait for that ( for a while!) - but presumably it will say copies can be scanned & emailed. If not would have to be mailed if customers not in Spain before 15 Dec

I popped into the Puerto Rey branch of Solbank last week with my concerns as I had heard the announcement on Spectrum FM,they assured me that it may be the case with other Banks but not this one and they confirmed my details were all in order.
