These procedures are to be completed in a specific order, which can be detailed by our team of company formation agents in Spain

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. 
Our team of company formation experts in Spain can provide further assistance on other permits that can be necessary for a construction project

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.
