Legal requirements

Enterprises collaborate by presenting information to the public authorities for the generation of official statistics. Sometimes on a mandatory basis, on other occasions voluntarily. The laws establish when enterprises are obliged to present information for statistical purposes, including those covered by the national statistical plan. This information is requested in Spain by the National Statistical Institute, or otherwise by different public authorities within their remit. This information is protected, it is confidential. A failure to collaborate can lead to an official penalty.

 

Administrative procedures

An attempt is made to limit those occasions on which enterprises are required to present information. Completion of statistics and presentation are facilitated, for example using online processes. One example would be the IRIA website, the National Statistical Institute's portal for the online completion of surveys.

The various ministerial departments also facilitate the presentation of declarations for statistical purposes regarding various matters via their websites, for example with regard to imports and exports, the tax office and Social Security. On many occasions this statistical information is not subject to a repeat request.

The Autonomous Communities, or Regions, have their own statistical systems. They collaborate with the National Statistical Institute. They generate their own statistics. The regulations of the Autonomous Communities, or Regions, occasionally require enterprises to present information for statistical purposes. This information is requested by their public authority departments or the body responsible for Statistics. It may also occasionally be presented online.
