Spanish SL – Set Up a Limited Company in Spain

Spanish SL’s

Spanish SL’s are the equivalent of UK limited companies and afford director/owners the protection of the corporate veil. It it the appropriate corporate vehicle for anyone setting-up a business in Spain who requires either limited liability protection or a more complex corporate structure than is possible with the simpler structure used by those self-employed in Spain.

Given the elevated levels of bureaucracy and red-tape in Spain, despite more recent efforts to address the issue, it makes sense to have English-speaking business and tax experts available to assist you with your business plans in Spain – from the start-up phase through to ongoing tax-compliance and HR matters such as processing new employees and Social Security obligations.

Our tax experts will assist you to set-up your business in Spain including company name registration, Mercantile Registry operations and bank account set-up.

  • Completion and presentation of all required tax returns
  • Company annual return (abbreviated accounts: balance sheet, profit and loss statement, annual report)
  • Ongoing updates on any legislative changes affecting the area of the Company Activities

 

Fees

The cost of registration with the Spanish Inland Revenue (AEAT) and Social Security system will vary according to the complexity of the corporate structure required, though typically a single director company will cost approx. 600 € + Notary, Commercial Registry and any associate administrative costs.

The Limited Company Incorporation and Tax Service starts at 120€ per calendar month*

*For those with an unusually high level of operations it may become necessary to adjust the fee level, but only with the client’s prior agreement.
