Note: INE requires all customers from or residing in Spain to have a complete Address in their customer profile, including the Province field. The export file will only contain complete customer profiles. Incomplete profiles will be listed in an enclosed .txt file—you'll need to manually add the missing information to customer profiles when you receive the export.

Once you have successfully download the document in MEWS, make sure that you load the .xml in, under XML-Turismo (see below).

Note: INE suggest to use EXPLORER browser to load the xml document. If exist any possible ERROR, through EXPLORER browser you will be able to see the errors listed and report them.

After loading the document, INE will ask you to review or update the information that sits under PRECIO y PERSONAL.

Once you update the Precio & Personal information, you will be able to SAVE the document. If everything works correctly, you will get official Nº de Recibo by the INE.

If an error exists, please send the message error + the INE XML file to MEWS Support in order to investigate.

Note: same file will work for those properties who need to apply for EUSTAT.
