Empadronmiento, what is it and why do you need it?

Many bureaucratic processes in Spain require you to present a Certificado de Empadronamiento.

If you are wondering what the heck that is, it is basically just an official register of where you live.

It is similar to the electoral roll in the U.K., except that it is done on an ongoing basis. 

They use the data they collect to keep track of demographic information and to decide how to allocate resources across regions and municipalities.

Just like the NIE most institutions and businesses such as banks will want to see this document.
