Obtaining construction permits in Spain
A construction company in Spain can enter various types of commercial projects. As a general rule, the construction companies can start the following types of projects:
• commercial constructions;
• residential constructions;
• infrastructure projects;
• rebuilding or demolishing projects.
All the above mentioned types of projects will need special licenses
, issued in accordance with the characteristics of the respective buildings
. When opening a company in Spain
in this field, the investors will also need business permits
that will attest the fact that the employees
of the company
can perform their activities in accordance with the employment requirements
established in this sector.
In the case of construction projects developed in urbanised regions of the country, the company will need a building permit, issued prior to starting the construction. The permit is also necessary when conducting various projects on an existing building.
According to the Spanish legislation, investors may obtain two types of permits:
• permits for minor works;
• permits for major works, applicable for demolition projects as well.
Register a Spanish construction company
Investors who want to start the procedure of company registration in Spain
for a construction business
will need to register with the Mercantile Register
for the company’s trading name
and to establish a corporate bank account, once the legal entity of the company
was established. The procedure will be completed at a public notary in Spain
, which will also issue a fiscal identification number.
It is important to know that, at the level of 2016, the construction sector increased by 3%
, a situation which was also influenced by the level of foreign investments
carried out in this country.
