What do you need to set up a company?

To set up an S.L, your corporate lawyer in Spain can, on your behalf:

  • Obtain a NIE for each shareholder and open a bank account.
  • Obtain the company name certification. The chosen name needs to meet certain criteria and be available at the Companies House.
  • Obtain the provisional and final Company NIF from the Corporate Tax Agency.
  • Draft the company ‘memorandum of association and articles of association’.
  • Sign the company establishment deed at the Notary.
  • Register the company at the Companies House.

Once the company has been registered at the Companies House, the company needs to be registered at the Tax Agency and Social Security before starting its commercial activity.

Our corporate English-speaking lawyers in Spain, with the power of attorney, can establish your company on your behalf.

Setting up a company is not an easy task, but Marfour made the process easy. From the very beginning, they were able to write the company’s articles of association as we have indicated them. They also helped us with the registration as autonomous. Thank you for everything you have done for us.
