Depending on the type of business that you are looking to open, can also depend on the type of licenses that you will need, especially if you have premises.

For example, if you are planning on opening a café, and need premises you will need to apply for various licenses (including a change of premises use license if the premises that you intend to use was not previously a café) with the local town hall. This will involve the use of an engineer and surveyor who will need to draw up full plans regarding the electricity, disabled access and toilets and emergency lighting. Once the works have been completed, the license transferred in your name, can you then use the license to contact utilities such as electricity and water. Then you will need to register the business with the conselleria de turismo. (tourism council). Once all of the licenses are in place, you can then register yourself or your business with the tax office and the social security department.

You will need to decide the model of business that works for you.
