NIE not recognised by Hacienda

Hi there

I am in the process of registering as autónomo and to get residency in Spain. I posted last month about the first steps - thanks to everyone who replied. If anyone can help with my latest query, I will be very grateful!

I picked up my NIE certificate last week, and I have a gestor who is trying to register me as self employed at the Hacienda. The gestor says that my NIE has not yet been sent to the Hacienda, and I need to wait until the police send it to them.

It surprised me that this process needs to happen, but I can believe it. Has anyone had this experience - ie. their NIE not yet being recognised because the police haven't sent it on somewhere? And does anyone know how long it might take for my NIE to become active with the Hacienda?

Many thanks
