Discover key aspects to invest in Cordoba

Establishing a company in Córdoba is simple. The procedure is similar to the rest of Spain.

The existing corporate forms are in line with those of other OECD countries. There is a wide range of options for investors who wish to invest in Córdoba or from Córdoba..

The most common corporate forms provided for by Spanish commercial law are the public limited company (S.A.) and the limited liability company (S.L.). The incorporation procedures are very similar in both cases: by means of the ordinary procedure, these are usually carried out within a period of between 2 and 6 weeks, although there is a draft law to facilitate the incorporation and stimulate the further development of a company.
