Registering with Hacienda in Malaga/ Form 030

Can anyone tell me what’s involved with registering with the Hacienda in Malaga, a form 030?  Can I just show up and do it or do I need a set appointment?  And info on what I need to bring with me? Apparently I need to take care of this now, as I’m importing my car and the customs office is going to expect me to be registered.  (At least that’s what my agent tells me.)

Would really appreciate any info.  Responses directly to me at macnmum AT gmail.com or to Digamextra for everyone’s benefit.  Thanks!

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.
