Hello there,

Normaly spoken you have to be autónomo, or an S.L or S.A  for any business you do in Spain.

But, if you not make more then, I believe 4000 € a year it's not neccesary.

A "gestoria" can tell you exactly how much it is, and what to do, to be legal.


Being an 'autónomo' costs depending of your age, between 150 € up to 320 € per month.
Your whole family has an health insurance for this, and you also build up a Spanish pension. If you have worked for 14 years you will get 800 € each month on the age of 65.

Just been to Alicante to the Tursmo office and been told that its illegal to operate a B & B in the area,,It looks like they favour Hotels and guest houses,, We both love Spain, its a great country, but appears to not be interested in the "Small" buisinessman,

With 5 Million unemployed and an Autonimo payment system which is prohibitly expensive its no wonder that people are working "under the Cloak",,Will it ever change ??.

I should not believe the turismo office to much.
It's better to get information at your own town hall, and see what they have to say if it's illegal or not.
Ido not think they can avoid you to start a small scale B&B business as long as you keep up to the regulations like safety and things like that.

Personaly I think it's crap talk from this turismo mafia.
