IMPORTANT NOTICE: In November 2018, a new browser-based application of the Single Form has been released, with the objective of substituting completely the PDF-based application. The two applications will run simultaneously until March 2019 (approximately), after this date the new application has to be used. We strongly recommend getting familiar with it, as it brings many interesting improvements.
