Working in Spain and being Autonomo

If you would establish your own business and would manage it yourself, then this is the most appropriate type of company for you.
Autonomo status is the Spanish equivalent of self-employed or freelance and in addition covers people operating (unincorporated) small businesses. Anyone engaged in any of these activities is obliged to legalise them with respect to registration, paying the taxes and charging IVA (VAT).

In order to register in Spain as Autonomo, you must be in possession of an NIE certificate, a bank account (for the social security charges) and a work permit (if from outside the EU).

Registering Autonomo is essentially a two step process: registering as self-employed with the tax office (Agencia Tributaria) and joining the Autonomo social security system (Regimen Especial de Trabajadores Autonomos RETA).

Setting up a business in Southern Spain is simple with MeExpress.net- Relocation company in Malaga/ Gestoria.

New Certificate of Registry as European Union Citizen in Spain (NIE/Residencia)

The Spanish National Police informed that the Residencia format has been reduced, replacing the current A4 document for a standard laminate card, being the same document but with a tenfold reduction in size, much more handy now.

However, this new NIE number does not include a photo of the resident, so it must always be shown together with the passport or driving license with photo.

Spanish driving license is the only official Spanish document that a foreigner from the European Union will be allowed to have and that will be valid for identification purposes as it includes the NIE or Residencia number.

Declaring the car off the road in Spain

This is a necessary procedure that has to be done in Trafico when your vehicle is not on the road for a long period of time for some reason. For example, when you export it, or when you do not drive it due to technical problems.

It is in the best interest of the owner to give “baja” to the vehicle, as the Road Tax will not be issued.

If later you want to drive the vehicle, you have to make a reverse procedure of “alta” and declare the vehicle on the road again. Please note it is illegal to drive the vehicle in the state of “baja”.

Payment of the outstanding road taxes

By law, when you drive a Spanish car, you need to have with you the confirmation of the payment of your local Road Tax. It is issued by the Town Hall listed on your registration document (Permisso de Circulacion).

Usually the payment request is sent to the address on the document, but in many situations the owners never receive these letters. But it is still a responsibility to have it paid.

Please note that past unpaid Road Taxes do not disappear, but become attached to the vehicle, and the interest and fines grow every year. So the earlier you pay the cheaper it will be.

Starting a new life in Spain

Dear friends:

Thousands of foreigners now live permanently in southern Spain, making it one of the world’s favourite emigratory destinations. But… the bureaucracy in Spain is still very strong and the Spanish love their paperwork 🙂 The more you have, the happier they will be!

Relocation does not just include packing items together with family in the car and arriving in Spain. You have to remember that you are moving your whole life, so you have to plan for it properly and make sure you know what you are arriving to and what is required both in your home country and in Spain. So, you have to plan your move well!
