History of Spain

Almost entirely surrounded by water, the Kingdom of Spain occupies the major part of the Iberian Peninsula. Formerly a great colonial power, the country now has over 46 million inhabitants and claims to have the largest land area in Western Europe. Spain has been part of the European Union since 1986.

Spain as an Onshore Centre

While Spain has a high rate of basic taxation, there are reduced rates for some businesses, depending on the level of their registered capital. There are also many tax deductions, e.g. for the R & D sector. The main types of companies for foreign investment are:

  • Limited liability company
  • Public limited company
  • General partnership
  • Joint ownership
  • Branch

You will need to ask the Spanish Embassy in your country for a Spanish identification number (NIE) in order to create a company.
