How to justify bank transactions with Bizum
The increasingly widespread use of the Bizum makes Treasury also review these movements. However, most payments with Bizum are of small amounts that go unnoticed, something that is recommended to be the case, as recommended from Viola Pérez Tax Lawyers, since if Bizum is used frequently and there are always movements between the same two people, the Tax Agency could put the focus there.
Therefore, the use of Bizum is preferable to limit it for payments of small amounts of money, especially, if there is no proof of payment.
In fact, the Treasury and the banks are in frequent contact, since The latter must provide their clients’ data to the Tax Agency in the case of income, cash withdrawals and transfers made with 500 euro banknotes, operations that exceed 10,000 euros, transactions greater than 3,000 euros in cash and loans and credits of more than 6,000 euros, as explained from the tax consultancy You.
