Shelf Companies in Spain

In Spain, shelf companies are, in practice, often used to circumvent the lengthy formalities of incorporation. Saving time and less risk are their biggest advantages. On activation of a shelf company, all the shares must be purchased and its bylaws must be amended and adjusted to align with the company’s business purpose. The final step is the publication of the economic re-establishment at the Spanish Registry Court.

The importance of real estate funds in Spain

Investments in real estate funds in Spain are currently attractive due to low interest rates. For individual investors, there exists the advantage of being able to invest in real estate funds in larger projects such as shopping malls or office complexes. There is a distinction between open and closed real estate funds.

The impact of Brexit in Spain

Law on Advertisements in the media in Spain

Advertising through the media is more controlled than one may think. There are limits on how much advertisement can be shown on TV, as well as how advertisements must be displayed online. The bottom line is that a consumer must always be protected and must always know that what they are being subjected to is indeed an advertisement rather than merely information. The laws that govern advertisements are quite specific on how advertisements must be created and displayed. Therefore, a consumer is protected from any type of deceptive advertising.
