Spain Registered Office

We have an office in Madrid, which includes a fully compliant Chartered Accountancy practice and can offer Registered Office facilities for your company.

All companies in Spain have the following:

  • "domicilio social"- the registered office
  • "domicilio fiscal"- the trading office for tax purposes

Typically, the following information should be kept at the Registered Office.

  • "Libro de Actas"- minute book, for minutes of company meetings
  • "Libro de Visitas"- labour inspection book, a book that needs to be stamped initially by the local council where employees work
  • "Libro de SubcontrataciĆ³n"- a book registering agreements with sub-contractors. This book is required following Law 32/2006,
  • "Registro de Socios"- a shareholders' register. There are usually preemption rights on the sale and purchase of shares in Spanish companies; it is the responsibility of the custodians of the registered office, to ensure that sale and purchase of shares is correctly recorded.
  • resignation of director's letters need to be sent to the Registered Office, by recorded post, with the post supervised by a notary
  • deeds which facilitate the change of shareholder documents need to be sent to the Registered Office - purchase and sale of shares can be done with a visit to a notary - however, because of "preemption rules", the other members may need to be informed beforehand, through a note to the registered office
  • documents about increases in share capital need to be sent to the registered office; and shareholders must be told of or be allowed to block any changes
