We're with Sabadell and our first year in Spain, as non-residents, the bank applied for the certificate on our behalf and deducted the fee from our account. We're residents now, so no longer relevant to us.

The request for your tax ID number in Spain is as a result of the USA's FATCA (anti tax evasion) regulations being adopted by the EU in 2015. The EU gave notice to member states that they had to collate client tax IDs by September 2017 and they're using the banking network to enforce it (so you should have received similar requests from both your Spanish and UK banks). I wonder if some Spanish banks are using account freezing to force account holders to provide the information?? Just a thought.
