“Make hay while the sun shines….” The opportunity to make money and a living from a gem of an idea that you may have had is rather attractive these days.
We have opened this and many other businesses in Spain so we know the pitfalls, and the rewards.
We’ve helped numerous clients move here to escape the drudgery of life back home with the commute to work, the pressure, the competitiveness, the lack of affordable child care for the kids, the high taxation levels all contributing to the reasons clients move here. Spain is a couple of hundred euro and a couple of hours from most European capital cities yet it’s still daunting. The question, “Am I doing the right thing?” is one all of our entrepreneurs have in common. Our answer is “Really, if you’ve done it right, what do you have to lose?”.
This is the age of Mobile. The Mobile hairdresser, personal trainer, physiotherapist, mechanic or even estate agent is here. Nowhere is it more evident than Spain where people are opening small home based businesses every day which are leading to new lives in the sun for them and their families.
So what does setting up a new business in Spain involve? When you start pondering this question, it all seems rather complicated and different from back home. That is where we step in. All you need to do is make an appointment to sit down and discuss your idea and be informed of what you need to do, if it’s going to be allowed, (taxi services for example are strictly regulated), what your options are and how long it will take.
Only experienced experts can inform you the best way to establish your business, how to structure your tax affairs and how to save money, not just spend it. We have seen all the possible mistakes and made a few ourselves. Below is some information which you may find useful. There is a whole lot more where that came from, so please if you are thinking of setting up a business or need advice on your current one, contact us and we will point you in the right direction.
