Most people think that once they obtain the NIE number certificate they are ready to go and finish the pending business they have in Spain.
If the reason why you applied for the NIE number certificate was to purchase a house, buy a car, set up a company in Spain or buy shares in an already existing one, become self employed or inherit assets from a relative in Spain, then you will definitely need to register such number with the tax office.
