The short answer is no, the Beach Bars would not be happy as they do food and ice creams and are properly licensed and paying taxes whereas someone running a bike would firstly have to register as self employed, be paying their income tax and meet any food hygiene regulations before they could start their business.

Why are people always so negative on here and automatically assume that someone starting a business would not do so legally?

I was not assuming anything, I was pointing out the pitfalls of starting a business where you would be in competition with existing businesses and have several hurdles to cross to be able to operate here in Spain.

That’s the nature of the forum police I’m afraid.

Exactly what I was doing, it is never my intention to put people off as some sad members on the Forum do, I was trying to explain the reality and difficulty of trying to make a living in Spain.

Whatever some people thought my intention was not to put you off but to show you the reality of trying to find work in Spain. Unemployment is high, where there is work it is often long hours for low pay with many Expats having to take on two or even three jobs to make a reasonable living. It looks like the days of being able to work under the radar cash in hand are over as the Spanish authorities clamp down on those working illegally. I wish you good luck and hope you find something suitable to provide a living for you and fulfil your dream.
