Businesses one can buy in Spain can be divided roughly into two types: existing companies with a name, business history, and clientele, and entirely new companies that have undergone the procedure of registration and are temporally frozen. The companies of the second type are created by Spanish legal bureaus especially for sale purposes. Their main advantage is the option of express re-registration available to the founders and a clean tax history.
Regardless of the option you choose, buying a business in Spain can be tricky without experts’ help. INEEDSpain service center provides the full spectrum of services in the area of starting or buying a business in Spain.

When a foreign citizen buys a business in Spain, it is important to appoint a managing director for a new company. According to Spanish legislation, only a Spanish citizen, a citizen of a country-member of the European Union, or a foreign citizen-resident who holds a residence permit with work authorization, can be appointed in the role of a director. INEEDSpain also assists in appointing a nominal director to fulfill these requirements. The cost of the services of such a director depends on the job responsibilities and the type of the company’s activities.
