Book abstract:

Part of the 'Doing Business With' range published by Kogan Page, this book provides an introduction to the business opportunities and regulations within Spain. It is a practical introduction for foreign investors and has articles compiled by corporations, government agencies, legal organisations and individual specialists in topics related to Spanish business.

The book is divided into six parts. It begins with an examination of the economic and business conditions of Spain. Sections in this part include an outline of the country's political structure, the internationalisation of the Spanish economy, the impact of the Euro, and business culture. The majority of these sections are provided by the Investment Promotion Bureau (SEPI), a government development agency aimed at foreign companies. Part 2, Business Practice and Development, includes sections on industry structure, SMEs, the labour market and recruitment, the property market, and the retail market. Banking and finance are examined by BBVA, the largest Spanish financial group, in Part 3 with analysis of the role of the banking sector in economic and industrial development, as well as sections examining raising finance for corporate investment, capital markets, and insurance. Part 4 provides an examination of legal issues with sections on disputes and arbitration, competition law, industrial and intellectual property, and employment law. Part 5 looks at various accounting issues followed by a final part on taxation. This includes sections on corporate and personal taxation, local and regional taxes, and infringements and penalties. The final three parts are contributed by PricewaterhouseCoopers and its member firms.

The book is aimed at individuals or corporations who require a practical introduction to investing and expanding their business activities in Spain.
