Businesses For Sale in Spain – Listings and Buyers Guide

This page is all about finding a business for sale in Spain.

We have written this guide to buying a business for sale in Spain specifically for people considering moving to Spain and wondering how they can make a living.

We will presume you are probably from the United Kingdom, possibly America and speak limited Spanish (for now).

WHY CONSIDER BUYING A BUSINESS FOR SALE IN SPAIN?

It is a proven fact that it is unless you are absolutely fluent in Spanish it is difficult to find work and jobs in Spain.

Even if you do find work you will find it is paid poorly when compared to what you are used to. Therefore starting a business in Spain or buying a business for sale in Spain can be a great way of being able to move to Spain and control your own financial destiny.

restaurant veni vidi viciRather than starting your own business in Spain there are many advantages to buying an existing business for sale in Spain instead. Starting a business is hard enough in your home country – business failures are high in every country – now imagine the failure rate in a foreign country!

When you look to find a business for sale in Spain you are able to avoid the difficulties of setting up a business including the administration involved and the initial period of advertising and attracting customers.

When you buy a business for sale in Spain you can look at the books and figures of the business and see if it is profitable (or not).

Unless the business for sale is in a great location we recommend avoiding it like the plague as there are plenty of profitable businesses for sale in Spain to choose from. The exception would be a business for sale that you can see has turnaround potential but this is really only for the very experienced in business.

Buying an existing business for sale in Spain is great because you can see it in operation and know you are buying an income and way to survive in Spain – unless of course business conditions change rapidly or you run the business badly.

Evaluate the sellers of the business in Spain – are they doing a good job in your opinion or could you improve the business for sale even further?

Do be careful when looking to buy a business for sale in Spain because any debts come with the business so using a lawyer in Spain or solicitor is crucial.

Do also be very careful when buying a business in Spain because typically most businesses for sale in Spain are of dubious quality, otherwise why would the owner or owners of the business be selling?

Sure, maybe they want to leave Spain or they want to retire but in most cases the business is failing or breaking even at best. In this case you would be better off starting your own business in Spain. The idea of buying a business in Spain is to buy a proven income stream – something that the current owners should have built up. Otherwise you are just paying for stock, fixtures and fittings and you could do this yourself and probably save money.

WHERE CAN I FIND A BUSINESS FOR SALE?

The Internet is a great place to look for a business for sale in Spain. Even before you get to Spain you can have a list of businesses for sale and go over and visit them all. The next best source of finding businesses for sale would be local newspapers in Spain, these all have a classified section with many businesses for sale advertised.

Most businesses for sale in Spain will be in the expat areas, primarily the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca so you have to live where the expats are and not inland in some remote location.

It’s a big decision and not everybody is cut out to run their own business but if you are still reading lets look at the most popular types of businesses for sale in Spain to see what you can buy for your money.

MOST POPULAR TYPES OF BUSINESSES FOR SALE IN SPAIN

BARS

By far the most popular business for sale in Spain. When people think what business would be good in Spain they invariably think of the millions of tourists that visit Spain each year. What they don’t consider is that there are thousands of bars already covering every possible area and that this is probably the most difficult business to pick to buy, which is why so many bar businesses are available to buy. For more information visit our guide to buying a bar for sale in Spain.

RESTAURANTS

Similar to a bar but in this case more skills are required. Buying this type of business in Spain is risky because much depends on the quality of the chef and if they leave the restaurant can go downhill quickly. Take-away restaurants in Spain are good businesses for sale as this market is still underdeveloped compared to elsewhere in Europe.

Restaurants for Sale in Javea, Costa Blanca

HOTEL, GUESTHOUSE, BED AND BREAKFAST

Again you will find may of these types of businesses for sale in Spain, probably because they are easy businesses to start up. An advantage with this business for sale is that you are probably buying property so at least you are buying something tangible even if the business in Spain does not work out.

We have a great interview with an owner of a bed and breakfast in Spain.

SHOPS

Usually involves a high startup cost when buying this type of business for sale in Spain but retailing can be a very wise choice of business to buy into usually because the high initial costs deter potential competitors.

There are many types of shops; most involve selling English goods to expats. Other examples of businesses for sale would be hairdressing salons, beauty salons, mini-markets, off-licenses, computer shops, pet stores, DVD rental stores, clothing shops, greeting card shops etc. Choosing a unique niche with little competition can be lucrative but again ask why the owners are selling. We have an informative interview with an owner running a shop in Spain.
