Llevo con ellos cerca de seis meses como autónomo y es desesperante que mandes un correo y tarden una semana en responder el gestor que te han asignado. La última oportunidad, si no me voy a otra gestoría.

Frequently Asked Questions


Registration is made in the Registro de Asociaciones Autonómico if the activity is local or regional, and in the Registro Nacional de Asociaciones if the activity affects more than one autonomous community.

The Registry has up to three months to respond to the application for registration. If there is no response within this period, the application is considered accepted. Likewise, the deadline varies depending on the Autonomous Community where the association is incorporated.

Costs may vary according to the Autonomous Community and the scope of the organization but generally include registration fees, professional fees if a lawyer is involved, possible notary fees and other administrative formalities.

Yes, both Spanish and foreign citizens can form and/or create a non-profit organization in Spain.

The requirements for foreigners are similar to those for Spanish citizens and include signing the Founding Charter, approving the bylaws, and submitting the required documentation to the corresponding registry. Foreigners must provide their passport or residence card, and in some cases, they may need a Foreigner Identification Number (NIE).

If you have doubts about the documentation required in your case, please consult with our experts.

A non-profit organization in Spain must comply with the following requirements:

  • Obtaining the NIF at the Tax Agency (Agencia Tributaria).
  • Declaration of Economic Activities (IAE): It is mandatory if the association carries out economic activities. They must register with the IAE and pay the corresponding fee.
  • Value Added Tax (VAT): If they carry out activities subject to VAT (most of them are exempt from this tax), they must register and file periodic declarations.
  • Corporate Income Tax: They may be subject to this tax if they obtain economic benefits.
  • Annual Accounts: Obliged to keep accounting records and file annual accounts with the Registro de Asociaciones.
  • Labor and Social Security obligations: If they have employees, they must comply with labor and Social Security regulations.


According to each case, the documentation to provide is different.

At the moment you hire one of the plans we will analyze your case and contact you to tell you the exact documentation you need to provide.

  1. One of our experts will contact you promptly to start analyzing your case in depth and tell you the best step-by-step process to follow.
  2. You will know what is the necessary documentation to provide and you may also contact us to solve any remaining doubts.
  3. We will apply for the registration of your trademark before the corresponding body and we will inform you of how the process is going, always keeping you up to date with any notification.
  • Payment of fees, apostilles and/or sworn translations, if necessary. However, the Sworn Translation service is provided separately.
