The main purpose of a SPV company in Spain  

Companies set up as SPVs are registered in Spain to serve numerous purposes. Amongst them, we mention the following: 
asset transfer;
As a general rule, most of the investors use a Spanish SPV for securitization purposes. This refers to the fact that the company’s receivables can be secured and this is also applicable to loans. The SPV is also used for transferring various assets which are usually more difficult to transfer, but it is also an investment tool for financing new projects. 
Those who are interested in company formation in Spain can start an SPV for infrastructure projects, which are financed under the regulations of the local authorities through public-private partnerships. The funding for the project is provided by both the Spanish institutions, as well as from funds made available by the European Union (EU). Later on, the local institutions approve the project which will enter the operational phase through the SPV.

Regulations for SPV in Spain  

The Spanish legislation for SPV prescribes that the securities of the company must be traded on the public market. SPV registered in EU can benefit from provisions referring to the issuance of shares, as long as the SPV is not incorporated in tax-haven regions under the Spanish authority
