You must enter this code in order to sign the communication in the electronic register.

The application may be presented at any time from the start of the regulatory period for the payment of the debt in question.

The total deferment period may not exceed 5 years.

The completion of the application form will validate the correspondence between the identifiers (NAF/CCC) for which the deferral and the taxpayer's NIF is requested.
In the case of an individual employer, the deferral of debts as a self-employed worker and as a company can be requested on a single form, recording the corresponding identifiers (NAF and CCC) in the section relating to the identifier data.

The total size of the documents to be attached must not exceed 10 Mb.

Next steps

Once the process has been completed, you will receive a “proof of receipt” in PDF format.

If you do not receive the confirmation message or you receive an error or transmission failure message, you must submit the documentation at another time or through other means.

The Administration will issue and communicate the resolution within three calendar months of receipt of the application.
