Do you want to create a company in Spain?

Spain is a European country that today and after adjustments and reforms in the financial system, in the labor market and in the public sector is characterized by undoubted solvency.

Its enviable geographical location in southern Europe makes it a gateway to the potential market in Europe and North Africa as well as the Ibero-American market due to its historical cultural and economic ties.

Its population reaches the figure of 48 million people, adding to it the more than 70 million tourists who visit Spain annually, make it a very interesting market.

We could say that Spain is a very good destination for foreign companies that do not want risks in their investment.

If you are not a resident of Spain and need to create a new company in Spanish territory, you are in the right place from GLC Abogados we can help you with legal and tax advice since we are specialized in the incorporation of new companies in Spain with foreign investment.

People who are not residents in Spain, before starting the procedures to create a company in Spain, have to previously carry out a series of specific procedures to obtain residency.

Companies formed with foreign partners do not differ from companies formed by Spanish partners, but they must present the model of Foreign Investment Declarations, in addition to the foreign partners having their valid NIEs.

From GLC Abogados we are going to guide you step by step on the entire process of incorporation of the new company even if you are not physically in Spain.
