Acquisition of shelf companies in Spain

By acquiring a shelf company, a company’s start-up period can be circumvented, saving considerable time. This is a major benefit as it takes several months to establish a new company in Spain. Additionally, since shareholders bear unlimited liability with their business and personal assets during the time until the company’s entry into the Commercial Register is made, risks are reduced when the start-up period is reduced.
