When a representation is canceled, an e-mail is sent to the power of attorney and the representative of the same, informing of this fact, if these have informed of his e-mail and have given permission to send them notices. In this case, the representation is no longer valid and therefore the representative will not be able to perform administrative acts on behalf of the power of attorney.



A representation is always annulled by the administration, due to two reasons:

  • a representation error has been detected and must be invalidated to prevent it from being used. This would be the case, e.g. if there is an error in the name or NIF of the power of attorney, if the documentation on which the representation is based is of the processing type and the registered representation is of a general type, etc.
  • 40 days have passed since the request for representation and the representative has not accepted it . In this case, the representation is canceled because it does not remain in this state indefinitely.

Once the representation has been canceled, it cannot be reactivated in any way, so the representation must be re-registered, taking care not to err in its data (if this was the reason for the annulment) or, making sure that it is subsequently accepted by the representative (if this was the reason for the annulment).
