Payroll in Spain.

Spain is known for its vibrant culture and history, and it is also an excellent place to expand and work with a highly-qualified workforce. However, the labor market is regulated and favors employees instead of employers. You’ll have to comply with multiple requirements for everything from setting up your payroll to hiring employees.

Hiring in EsSpain.

Spain’s laws group jobs into different categories, and each has strict regulations concerning salary ranges, working hours, and paid time off. You must keep these regulations in mind when recruiting and hiring new employees in the country. In addition to following all of Spain’s employment compliance laws, you’ll have to onboard employees and continue growing your subsidiary.

Compensation & Benefits in Spain.

Compensation and benefits are vital to both employees and employers. You’ll need a strong Spain benefit management plan that includes both guaranteed and supplemental benefits to bring in top talent. Plus, you must meet the statutory minimums to stay compliant and avoid any fines.

Spain Subsidiary.

Opening a subsidiary in Spain is an exciting time in the life of your company. However, Spain’s subsidiary laws require you to make several decisions up front — including the structure of your company, your method of incorporation, and the resources you’ll need. The entire process can take six to eight weeks, delaying the start of your operations and compelling employees you want to hire to look for jobs elsewhere.
