The company formation process in Spain
Forming a company in Spain, just as with all
other legally binding transactions here,
necessitates the use of a Notary. The
Notary's office will ask to see copies of all
relevant documents relating to the company
formation before granting a signing. Namely:
the company name certificate (certificado de
denominacion social), bank certificate of
deposit (certificado de ingreso), Articles
of Association (estatutos sociales), and
sometimes personal identification documents of the
shareholders and administrators.
After the Notary's signing, the formation
document (Escritura) must be deposited at
the Mercantile Registry in the capital of the
province where the company is to have its
registered office. Before this is done, the
Escritura must be presented at the local
government tax collection office to pay the stamp
duty (which is 1% of the share capital), and the
state Tax Office to obtain a fiscal code (CIF).
Once the company has a CIF, it is ready to
trade normally and invoice its customers.
Requirements for a Spanish company
Companies should state their CIF, and
registered address on all documentation. In
addition a single shareholder company (Sociedad
Unipersonal) must state that it is such.
Invoices issued by the company should also mention
the tax code of the customer.
Annual accounts must be filed with the Mercantile
Registry and abbreviated accounts can be filed for
companies that do not qualify as large. These
accounts must be accompanied by a signed statement
by the shareholders regarding the passing of the
accounts. There are also a number of statutory
books to be deposited and the compulsary books for
a Sociedad Limitada (S.L) are:
shareholders register (libro de socios)
and monthly summary of company activities (libro
