Hi everyone

I’m currently a gardener in the Uk but want to relocate to the Costa Blana South region.

Does anyone have a gardener and what’s the going rates and frequency of their visits?

Also my wife would like to start a cleaning business ( before holiday tenants arrive and leave ). What’s the rates like to charge?

Thanks in advance

About 5-7€ per hour.

You would both have to be self-employed paying about 270€ each per month for social security (not earnings related). There is a reduced start-up rate which may apply.

HOWEVER, I suspect this market is already fairly well saturated.

Thanks for quick response and thoughts
Hey buddy

The reduced rate is huge for the first 18months.

Your social security is only about ?55 per month for the first six months.

In addition, gardeners around here do charge more than that. My Spanish landladys husband charges ?15 however there are a lot around. Nevertheless there are a lot of gardens around.

Speaking Spanish changes everything. Speak the language and doors open up.
