In the upper left-hand corner, you need to enter your personal details and then, in the row below, the corresponding invoice number as well as the date on which you are invoicing us.

In the concept, all you need to enter is the language or languages into which you have translated, the translation period (month and year) and the amount earned (without VAT or Personal Income Tax).

The next step is very important-you need to indicate your bank details in order for us to make the transfer.

Lastly, you need to enter the total again and apply the VAT and the Personal Infcome Tax withholdings. The final total will be the amount which BigTranslation will go by when paying into your account. Remember that if you are registered as self-employed in Spain or the Balearic Islands, you need to add 21 % VAT and the correct percentage of Personal Income Tax withholdings.

On the other hand, companies registered in Spain and the Balearic Islands only need to apply the 21 % VAT in their invoices.

Please do not forget to sign all invoices and clearly indicate your full name.

We recommend that you contact an administrative agency so that they can resolve any queries regarding the emission of these invoices as BigTranslation accepts no responsibility and/or claim if any error occurs with them (wrong bank details, IVA, PIT, etc.).
