As from the 19th of November there is a limitation to pay in cash more that 2.500 euros if one of the parties in the operation is a self employed or company. The fines established are really high. Ley 7/2012 de 29 de octubre.
My accountant has just informed me of the above.
I think what she is saying any single payment. (I need to confirm with her if this limit is for any payment at all) She has clarified that
bank accounts listed in an individuals name (and not an Autonomo or owns a company) - is OK - but the bank are still
legally obliged to tell the tax man of any single payments in over Eu3,000.
This will not affect me (as I don’t earn that much!).. but seems things are getting tighter by the week!
