- private limited company – it is established by a number of investors, who have the right over the company’s shares.

What is an Established Spanish Company?
Spanish established limited liability companies (ready-made / ready to use companies) are usually ready-made companies, including retail business for sale without previous activities and registered one, two or even more months ago in Spain. Each established company is dedicated with universal name; therefore, it can carry out any kind of business activity.

Sometimes the procedure might take up to 7 days (usually it takes one, max – two days). The bank account can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

It even has been doing some real business in the past and has been established for a period of 1-10 years. Such a company does not have any debts and other obligations. Companies for sale in Spain have longer or shorter work experience already, with the past years annual turnovers and all bookkeeping in neat manner. This can be a good way to show for potential partners, customers or banks your credibility. These shelf companies, in other words, running business for sale in Spain, have no physical assets or any real working employees, generally speaking, a customer is buying prestige.

All licences have to be approved by official Spanish authorities. Running businesses, i.e. companies with previous business transaction history and licences are more expensive to purchase comparing to a newly registered Spanish companies.
