The list of new resale companies for timeshare and holiday clubs continues to increase with ADMV, Agencia de Mediación Valencia, and Asesoria y Consultoria Dura S.L.L, two companies that seem to be working hand in hand.
The company ADMV from Valencia is the one that contacts the consumers first and offers them the resale of their timeshare, but they do request illegally a safety deposit, which according to the European Timeshare Directive is not allowed!
Once the consumer has been convinced and has paid the requested (illegal) security deposit, happens something which nobody seems to have expected: The employees of ADMV state that the Spanish Tax Office would have carried out one of their random controls and it has been detected that the consumer – the seller – has to pay taxes in the amount of 12% of the supposed sales price, and apart from that he was lacking a NIE number.
At this point another supposed lawyer appears on the scene, employee of the company Asesoria y Consultoria Dura S.L.L, who then does his utmost to make the consumer believe that he must pay this tax to avoid serious problems with the Spanish Tax Office.
Confusing? Well, yes it is. Especially because there exists no such tax that is to be applied when selling a timeshare, nor is it necessary to have a NIE number when selling a timeshare.
Please find further information about who, why and when it is necessary to have such a NIE number: http://bit.ly/VCtYfc
So, it can be said that we are facing here another case of an alleged fraud! Please do not make any payments, no matter which story about tax problems you are told! It is all invented!
The website for ADMV is www.admv.es, but they do only offer information in Spanish, and in reality not very much.
