The Legal Landscape Of Business in Spain

With the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Spain has come to recognize the importance of foreign investment. There’s a critical push right now to bring business to the country. This includes:

  • 100% foreign ownership in investments
  • Completely liberalized capital movements
  • A nondiscrimination policy for international firms with respect to local access

Keep in mind, while there are favorable policies, there are foreign investment restrictions in industries such as:

  • Mineral production
  • Gambling
  • Telecommunications
  • Air travel

As a sovereign nation, Spain has a right to set policies regarding business facilitation and commercial real estate. Understanding these policies and the applicable law can be extremely complicated. Our team of attorneys can build a path forward for you to get the success and returns you desire.

A Brief Look At Spanish Commercial Real Estate

The commercial real estate market across Spain offers considerable opportunity, but there are many restrictions. As an investor in commercial property, you understand that every new location comes with unique difficulties. The challenges regarding real estate investment include:

  • Seeking government authorization before investing
  • Meeting Spain’s anti-money laundering regulations
  • Securing the necessary legal basis for doing business in Spain

Our team has experience supplying skilled guidance through all the aspects of the real estate market. We will collaborate with you to pursue your goals and provide our detailed, thorough legal perspective on your projects.
