We will contact with landlords and we will send you photos and videos of the apartments. We will be with you from start to finish, from the moment you arrive until you leave. Should you have any questions we will answer them. We speak fluent English so that you are able to communicate with us easily.

If you need a mortgage, we bring you in connection with the right bank that can carry out the financing.



Bank account

Sunshine Enterprise S.L. goes with you to the right bank that accepts your documentation and we can recommend you to a bank employee who will assist you on your needs. They all try to speak English.

You can tell the bank to send your bank statements to our office address. When you come back to Spain, you can pick them up from us or we send them to you to your home country. And should you receive other mail, we can also send it to you.



Bookkeeping

Tax returns each year must be made after the founding of a Spanish company. They must be submitted to the tax office and are then brought to the commercial register. Sunshine Enterprise S.L. gives the customer the right accountant, which makes the annual tax return for a reasonable price; our customers do not have to worry about it.



Business address

We can incorporate your company and offer you our office address as your own business address until you have settled in and acquired your own office. We can take care of your bookkeeping and handle all necessary administrative procedures, so you can concentrate solely on running your business.



Capital Stock

The Spanish limited liability company, called S.L., is one of the most common types of companies. It is suitable for everything from the one-man company to a holding company and all aspects in between. The low capital stock amounting to only 3.000 € makes it easy to obtain one. For the establishment of a corporation, also called an S.A., the founders would require a much larger capital of 60.000 €.



Certificate of Incorporation

The certificate of incorporation must be created in a notarial form; therefore a notary visit is required for the directors of the company and the shareholders. It can be both natural and legal persons who set up a company, but behind every legal person is a natural person.



Climate

Costa del Sol enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate with the warmest winters in Europe. The winter months from December through March have an average daily temperature of 17 degrees Celsius (63 degrees Fahrenheit) and an average night time temperature of 8 degrees Celsius (46 degrees Fahrenheit). The summer extends over eight months from April to November.



Commercial Register

The creation of a Spanish company does not take place overnight. It takes several steps. For the entire duration of the foundation of the company you should calculate at least three weeks from the request of the name of the Company to the registration in the commercial register. Patience is an important part of this process, but with this entry in the commercial register the company receives the full legal capacity.



Condo

If you plan to buy a condo, we will put together a list of condos for you which meet your needs and wishes. We will contact with landlords and we will send you photos and videos of the condos. We will be with you from start to finish, from the moment you arrive until you leave. Should you have any questions we will answer them. We speak fluent English so that you are able to communicate with us easily.

If you need a mortgage, we bring you in connection with the right bank that can carry out the financing.
