PEO Services In SPAIN

Helping Businesses Expand Into Spain With Expert PEO Services

Expand into the European Union's second largest country using our PEO services in Spain

With a well-known high quality of life and steady economic growth, Spain has long been a popular choice for business expansion. While their economy is highly reliant on tourism as its main source of income, Spain's pharmaceutical, manufacturing, textiles and automotive industries also contribute significantly to the country's revenue.

While expanding your business into Spain is an exciting step it is also extremely challenging. Firstly, the requirement to set up a legal entity for your business in Spain is a costly, time-consuming and arduous process laden with red tape. 

Secondly, the employment laws set out in the The Estatuto de los Trabajadores, or Workers Statute can be difficult to navigate if you are unfamiliar with Spanish business protocols. Spanish employment laws include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Employers must provide a written employment contract if employment is due to last longer than 4 weeks
  • Employees must not work more than 40 hours per week over a 12 month period or more than a 9 hour day
  • Employees must have at least 12 hours between shifts
  • As of January 2020 employees must be paid the minimum monthly wage of €1,108
  • Overtime is capped at 80 hours per year

On top of employment laws outlined in the Worker Statute employees working in Spain may also be required to obtain a work visa. While workers in EU countries are free to work in Spain without a visa, non-EU workers will need to obtain a work visa that varies depending on the type and length of their employment. 

A combination of employment laws, visa requirements and the process of setting up a legal entity makes expanding into Spain a challenging and time-consuming process for businesses. This is where our expert PEO services come in.

PEO Services in Spain

While Spain provides lucrative business opportunities for both local and international companies, Spanish employment laws are particularly favourable of employees. As such, expanding businesses must pay close attention to the Workers Statute to ensure compliance.
