We provide the services you need AFTER your Spanish company is formed. By having corporate/tax lawyers, accountants, and payroll specialists in the same office, your business needs are covered, and information passes between them without requiring your intervention. Our expert tax planners can help minimize your tax burden, such as advising on the best way to move capital from the parent company to the new Spanish company, and how much salary the company director should receive.
