In February 2021, the Spanish Tax Agency enabled a new mechanism to facilitate the VAT pre-declaration for all VAT taxpayers. This new service, called Pre303, will give the taxpayer a new 303 model with certain boxes already filled in, such as the amount they have pending to be offset from previous periods. As a result, the administration gives to its taxpayers all the information they already have, which leads to a system similar to the Spanish declaration of the Personal Income Tax. Taxpayers will also be able to consult and update tax register data directly related to the tax, eliminating discrepancies that may cause delays in the processing of a refund application or the initiation of a verification procedure.
This year the Pre303 service has been extended to all taxpayers who are obligated to file form 303 model. The last version of the model was only applicable to the taxpayers that were in the SII and had access to their aggregated books.

In addition, for those taxpayers that apply the SII, the Pre303 will be called Pre303/LLA. The relevance of this Pre303/LLA is that the tax administration will complete all their economic data, with the information in their aggregated books. So, the taxpayers will only have to modify those aspects that they consider incorrect.
Furthermore, the access to this Pre303 needs to be carried out by electronic ID or certificate. However, if the taxpayer wants to let a third party do their pre-declaration, such as a lawyer, this third party needs to have power of attorney.
Finally, the following set of information will be provided with the Pre303:
