Spanish Solutions Legal and Tax
We are an established legal and tax firm in La Zenia, Orihuela Costa, Spain providing a multitude of other services.
We are not sure why we are all women in the team (where are all the men?) but we are dedicated, warm and friendly and professional, always going out of our way to deliver exceptional service. Although many of us have families, we seem to have countless energy and enthusiasm in solving problems for our clients, probably because we really want to help them, and many become friends.
In 2005, Spanish Solutions was founded with the catchy motto “Yes, we can” to solve all the problems and requirements (legal, tax and paperwork) that people had using an estate agent and buying a house in Spain. We are still helping people on a daily basis more than fifteen years later.
We have a wealth of information about our services on this site, so don´t spend too long on our life stories and get back to the interesting stuff on other pages!
