How to implement a company in Spain?

Depending on the type of company you set up, you will need to fulfill Spanish regulations with regard to accounting, auditing and tax filing. Choosing the type of entity and determining its relationship with the parent company (if there is one) or international shareholder requires knowledge of Spanish mercantile law. In our experience, having the proper setup with help from professionals will save you money and time in the end. For example, changing the company director can take more time than forming a new company.
