What is a NIE Number and what is a NIF number? Do I need them both?

A NIE number is a personal identification number including the allocated tax code, it includes some personal details. The NIF number is purely the tax code allowing you to have a fiscal presence in Spain, it also links all your corresponding tax information and due payments. Even though you may have obtained your NIE number, is does not mean that your NIF number is registered correctly and active. It is important to make sure this is the case, which ABAD is at your disposal to do for you. 
It is important to have both as the NIE is needed for every day activity, such as banking and the NIF is the associated tax number needed for taxes, such as tax returns.
