(BOE 31-enero-2013) is an informative tax declaration that only Spanish tax residents are obliged to submit to the Spanish tax office every year. It was started in 2012, and the main reason to it was the Spanish Inland Revenue controlling the underdeclared earnings to those who decided placing assets and wealth outside the Spanish Territory bounderies.
Deadline to present this tax return is 31.03.2020.
Tax form 720 is particularily sectioned in three separated sections:
- Bank accounts placed overseas.
- Properties located outside Spain, and;
- Bank Trusts if any also placed outside Spain.
In case of being obliged to any of these sections, you will be obliged to submit this informative tax declaration before end of March.
Section 1 is bank account information.

Exactly the same to Section 2 if you had any type of Company share investment, life insurance pension benefits, and/or lifetime or temporary early retirement pensions, and the same to Section 3 if you had any type of properties, premises, … placed overseas.
If you did not submit this tax declaration, and you were obliged to, should you then be considered as tax frauding, and be aware of enormous amount of tax penalties fines which vary between 1.500 euros and 10.000 euros plus income tax penalties that could raise your income tax bill by 150% if worse case scenario.
If you are Spanish tax resident, should you then inform the Spanish Revenue to all your banking assets, and property/ies located overseas in 2019 if being higher than 50.000 euros, solely in your name or jointly together with someone else.
