Spain is a member state of the European Union (EU) and the Community has not introduced yet a specific rule of law regulating this sector.

Investors who want to open a company in Spain should know that specific articles of the Spanish Civil Code protect the operations of such businesses; our team of specialists in company formation in Spain can offer consultancy services on the available legislation, depending on the company’s business activities

Cryptocurrency mining in Spain 

Companies performing cryptocurrency mining activities will be taxed under new rules of law imposed by the Spanish government. Cryptocurrency mining refers to the procedure through which transactions carried out through virtual currencies are verified. Those interested in company registration in Spain in this field should know that the National Directorate of Tax announced that cryptocurrency mining activities will be taxed as such operations are included in the category of economic activities. Our team of agents in company registration in Spain can offer further information on the new legislative proposal. 
In this sense, cryptocurrency miners will be required to register with the Spanish authorities for taxation purposes and this should be completed prior to submitting the taxes associated with operations deriving from cryptocurrency mining
The legislation is not yet applicable in Spain, but it may be enforced to prevent a set of associated criminal activities that are usually encountered in this field, such as: 
money laundering;
tax evasion;
cybercriminal activities.
