Since the opening of the European barriers in 1993, each European citizen can set up a company in a member state of his/her choice without the obligation of living in it.
Setting up a company in the United Kingdom is an easier process than it is in Spain both in time and simplicity as well as the procedure to follow and the initial capital needed.
The Spanish Chamber of Commerce supports the setting up of companies in the United Kingdom through a series of available services for members and non-members.
By becoming a member of the Chamber, members can benefit from the following:
- Access to more than 300 member companies and the opportunity to contact them through a high number of networking events organised by the Chamber.
- Advice about the setting up of a company in the United Kingdom and the possibility of doing business.
- Preparation of commercial agendas.
- The publication of a site containing information about your business on the Chamber´s web site.
- and many other services.
The majority of these services can be used by non-member companies of the Chamber.
