    Does HSA (Health Saving Account) need to be included on modelo 720?

    • Antonio Rodriguez

      Yes, correct!

    I don’t understand the requirements for the D6 filing, i know about the Modelo 720, but it seems like they are the same thing. Please tell me what the difference is. The wording is confusing.

  3. Antonio Rodriguez

    The reporting is very similar, but the three reports go to three different entities, so they can use the information for several different porpoises depending on their needs or their desires. The 720 goes to the tax administration mainly for tax porpoises an to transfer the info to other countries (FATCA), the other two go to Ministerio de Economia and the Bank of Spain, for statistical porpoises and fraud control.
