As previously reported, marketplace operators in Spain have until April 6 to provide the Tax Authority (Agencia Tributaria) with information on sellers who annually carry out more than 30 transactions for the sale of goods worth more than €2,000 ($2,155 U.S.) in total.

This has led Wallapop and other marketplaces operating in Spain to begin sending emails to affected users, requesting tax information — including their full name, address and tax identification number — website As reports.

The email reportedly includes a warning that the accounts of users who do not provide this information may be blocked until the requirements established by law are met.

Apart from the sale of goods, the regulation also applies to personal services and all property rentals. This regulatory change is part of DAC7, which extends the EU’s tax transparency rules to the digital marketplace sector.
