The idCAT is a natural person certificate , that is to say, it identifies you to carry out procedures electronically as a citizen. Therefore, it would not be the ideal certificate to carry out procedures as a company, association or neighborhood community.
However, if you have the registration of the entity or company's representation, you will be able to use it, as long as the administration and the procedure allow it. It is best to consult the same administration with which you want to relate electronically.
Another way to accredit the representation is to register a representation in the Electronic Power of Attorney Register (Representa) for a maximum of 4 years. In order to be able to register the representation between the company and the natural person who represents it, it is necessary to attach a document certifying this representation, which will later be validated by a public employee. Operationally, the natural person needs to access the Representa platform, accrediting himself with a digital identifier, register the representation and attach the supporting document in the required format. You will find all the information in How can I register a representation electronically?
