Hi couldnt find a thread to put this so started my own i am looking to move my family to spain and my mum and dad have decided to come with us we are from wales and would like to move to mallorca.

My dad and myself are both electricians and i am a former pub landord in the uk and i used to run a bar/cafe in mallorca. The original plan was my family and i were going to open a bar/cafe on the island but since my parents have got involved we have realised that this will not be enough to support everyone and as they are not retired yet they will also need a small income to add to my dads navel pension so my dad wants to start a small electrical firm to give us a year round buisness.

Is there any special requirements needed to start this kind of buisness or is it as simple as it is in the uk any help would be gratefully recieved

Hi and welcomw to the forum! :)

I dont want to start off on a negative - BUT expecting an all year round income from an ex pat business in Spain at the moment is going to be extremely tough!! And that will probably be the same for a new electrical business and a bar. The economic climate has affected Spain more than most other Countries in the EU, and its expected to get worse Im afraid ... and living on Majorca is more expensive anyway that many other parts of mainland spain.

Having said all that .... if you genuinely believe you can do this than you go for it ... but make sure you do your research first,

Im just going to try and find you a couple of links I think I have regarding business start ups....Ill post them later if I come acrss them.

Take care

Sue :plane:

This is just one of many help sites I found on the internet for starting a business in Spain. If you have run a bar previously then Im sure you will know more than most of whats involved legally etc .... but if your dad is considering setting up a "proper" business then there are perhaps others things to consider.



Starting a business in Spain


Best of luck

Well, there are electrical businesses and electrical businesses....from shops catering for electrical goods and supplies etc to those who can completely rework the electrics/rewire properties, etc. Please bear in mind that if it's the latter, you will need your qualifications homologised or have a partner who has, in order to submit projects to Industria, for final commissioning.

Good luck!

What about when it comes to marine electrics as there is no qualification as such in Europe and there is no regulations either. we are highly experienced in the marine industry and we would mainly focus are attention in that area. Domestic work was just a back up and i thought UK qualifications were recognised throughout the EU

if we decide on a website you my friend are first port of call
Over here there's a huge Brit sub culture that exists on the Net.
The majority of them can't do anything for themselves in the real world.....so the virtual world becomes their lifeline!
