    Frequently asked questions about Spanish Company Incorporation

    There are many type of entities in Spain:

    1. Sole Trader/Sole Proprietor (Empresario Individual or Autónomo)
    2. Public Limited Company (Sociedad Anonima /SA)
    3. Partnership (Sociedad Civil)
    4. New Enterprise Limited Company  (Sociedad Limitada Nueva Empresa/SLNE)
    5. Limited Liability Company (Sociedad Limitada/SL or Sociedad de Responsabilidad Limitada/SRL)
    6. Co-ownership (Comunidad de Bienes/CB)

    The two main types of companies that are recognized in Spain are Sociedad Anónima and the Sociedad Limitada.

    The main difference is that the Sociedad Anónima company is most appropriate for large companies. In contrast, the Sociedad Limitada Company is a better-fit for shareholders that do not need a large amount of capital.

    Yes, a Spanish company can be formed by a single individual, and you can be the sole director and shareholder of the company.

    The answer is Optional. All of the incorporation process can be done using a Power of attorney.

    However, PoA should include a cover application for the tax identification numbers of the company’s directors and shareholders before a Spanish notary.

    The minimum share capital will depend on the type of legal entity you adopt. For the Sociedad Anónima company, the minimum share capital is € 60.000, while the Sociedad Limitada costs € 3.000.

    Yes, a limited liability company can accommodate almost any type of investment. However, sectors such as pharmaceutical, fund management, insurance, or banking must be carried out through a Sociedad Anónima. Please contact us for help with your incorporation.

    No, Foreigners can incorporate a company in Spain. However, you will need a unique identification number (NIE) to carry on with the process.

    Yes, all companies need a registered address in Spain. If you don’t have one, BarcelonaDesk can provide you with a service address.

    The (Numero de identificacion de Extranjeros- NIE) is a tax identification number of Spain’s foreigners. This unique number allows you to carry out any economic activity in Spain, including buying a house, starting a company, or when appointed as a company’s administrator.

    Incorporating a company in Spain takes several weeks, and it depends on the complexity of each case, including (NIE requirements and shareholder’s nationality).

    A proof of the foreign investor’s existence will be needed by the tax authorities and the Spanish notary. A notarial affidavit (with the correct wording) document is the preferred document for this purpose. Except for an excerpt of a public body, such as the chamber of commerce, the company’s house, or the mercantile registrar could be used.

    Yet, we strongly recommend the notarial, as a result of our experience.
