History:

Before the creation of the Provincial Delegations of the Treasury, (Delegaciones Provinciales de Hacienda) by the Law issued on the 9th of December 1881, the provincial offices of Public Treasury (Hacienda Pública) –Administration, Accounts Department, and National Treasury– depended on the Civil Governor between 1849 and 1881. Before 1849, they depended on the Intendant.

Therefore, the Treasury Administration (Administración de Hacienda) of the province of Barcelona is the precedent of the Provincial Delegation of Treasury of Barcelona and the successor of the Intendancy of Army and Province (Intendencia de Ejército y Provincia) from the Principality of Catalonia, in its treasury functions (1716-1849).
