Official services

Below you will find some useful information about the official services you may need while living and working in Spain. These services are to help you manage the paperwork that is required to live or work here or both. We have recommended an office in both the north and the south of the Costa Blanca so you can find the right partner in a location convenient to you.

Gestoria

A Gestor is invaluable if you are moving to Spain or indeed you are living here already but need help with certain documents.  The Gestor is an official agent, licensed by the autonomous governments to help you navigate Spanish bureaucracy and help you to submit any paperwork with as much ease as possible.  They normally help you with documents and processes such as employment and residence permits; obtaining a driving licence, tourist plates or registering a car; social security and property contracts; or establishing and registering a business.

Fiscal Asesor (Accountancy and tax advisor)

Your asesor is the equivalent of an accountant and will deal with all of your tax and accountancy processes including submission of your tax return.  They will assist you in the submission of your quarterly IVA return.  Sometimes you may find an asesor who also offers the services of a gestor so you can keep all of your paperwork dealings both business and personal in one place.

Notary

The notary is someone you may need if you are buying a property or establishing a business over here. The main function of the Spanish notary is to draft up agreements between private parties, ensuring that they meet the legal criteria.  They then sign, stamp and register them.  For example, for a house purchase, a will or the incorporation of a new business.

The notary will need to be based in the area where you are living, working or buying but here are some that we can recommend:
