Business in Spain

The Business in Spain section of SpainExpat.com covers a diverse range of topics to inform any potential or current expat interested in doing Business in Spain. Many expats come to Spain with a bit of savings, a good idea (often inspired by sucessful businesses back home) and the ambition to start a business.

Here we cover taxes, types of corporate entities, etiquette, how to start a business and general help on making a living if you find yourself with the motivation but only a vague notion of how you'll make ends meet in Spain.

This is Spain Business! :)
