Business In Spain
There are various business configurations available for commencing a new business in Spain. It is quite obvious that before setting up a new venture one needs to follow certain rules and regulations in order to start up with his/her new work. Thus, obtaining license (if in the same country) and permit and license (if from abroad) for the new business are essential in order to begin with that business.
There are basically two business configurations in Spain i.e. you can start your business as an individual or in a group (organization). Of course there are certain pros and cons associated with each of the two configurations. It is always less expensive to set up a new business as an individual because initial funds and assets are not required and also there is no need to go for companies' registration for the individual business. Moreover it becomes quite easy when it comes to deal with the income tax in case of individual business.
But if you set up your business as an organization then you are supposed to get your organization registered with the companies' registration department. Also you are required to have certain initial finances and company or organization tax has to be paid. The benefit of setting up an organization rather than beginning up a new venture as an individual is that there are fewer legal responsibilities and it is easy to have admittance to certain bequests. One can make use of an organization named Ventanilla Única Empresarial i.e. VUE in order to start up a new organization.
Once you have decided the type of configuration you want to go with then the next step is to obtain licenses and permits in order to start dealing with the customers or other corporations. First of all, one needs to obtain a Fiscal License. This is a kind of license needed for any assessable activity to be carried out in Spain. Then the second thing you need to obtain is the Opening License. This is acquired from a local authority that ensures that you are legally permitted to deal with the customers and the organizations. Then the Certification of Security is required to make sure that the organization's premises are appropriate for dealings. This certificate is obtained from an architect. There are lot of communities to help you out and provide guidance on the procedures involved in obtaining these licenses like YUE and even police and other local authorities. Also there are some specialists in Spain that deal with the paperwork involved in these procedures and are called Gestors.
Finally when you have obtained licenses and permits (please contact a corporate attorney or lawyer) you can start trading. But you need to work in accordance with certain rules and regulations. There is much legislation for enhancing your business as well. It is not very hard to set up your business in Spain once you are aware of the rules and regulations to be followed. The most important step is to obtain the permission for trading and that can be easily done as there are lots of opportunities available for obtaining licenses and permits.
