What can we help with when transferring executives?
Relocate staff temporarily from your home office or executives to supervise your new Spanish office: let us manage work permits, taxes and social security.
There is a special work permit in Spain to cover temporary transfers of your company executives or qualified employees to carry out some temporary work, such as to open your new office in Spain, supervise a project, or attend a client or your new productive facility or lab. The executive or the employee has to be assigned to a Spanish company, but their payroll in most cases continues to stay with your headquarters in the country of origin.
How can we help you with transferring executives?
The first step when transfering your executives or employees to work in Spain is to determine the best strategy. Depending on their role and duration of the transfer, one or the other permit may work better than another. Our qualified immigration lawyers with years of experience advising international companies will choose the most appropriate way for you. We will provide you with our personalised process guide and assist in obtaining the corresponding work permits for your staff.
What you need to know about transferring staff to Spain
Is it easy to transfer executives or experts to Spain?
The fast track immigration procedure set up by the International Mobility law makes the temporary transfers simpler, and we can advise on the fastest way to get the necessary documents in your case to make it successful and stress-free for you. It is important to make sure that your company complies with the relevant tax and Social Security obligations.
How long can the transfer be for?
Executives and experts can be transferred for up to 3 years, employees for training for up to 1 year. If you need them in Spain for longer, our expert lawyers will advise on a possible solution.
Is it obligatory to have a university degree?
Not under this procedure. You will need to show that your employee has relevant work experience of at least 3 years and qualifies for the job in your home office.
What documents do we need to provide to obtain the transfer permit?
The company needs to prove the need of the transfer and a work centre which the executive or the employee will be assigned to in Spain.
The employee will need to demonstrate the relevant education or work experience, absence of criminal records, and having worked for your company in the country of origin for at least 3 months.
The most important document in such procedures is a certificate of coverage from your local Social Security office confirming the transfer and that the work contract will remain in the country of origin under a corresponding bilateral agreement between Spain and your country. If such an agreement doesn’t exist, you will need to transfer the work contract to Spain for the duration of the transfer permit.
Can I transfer an employee to Spain if I don’t have a Spanish office?
You can only do it if you have a client or a collaborating company in Spain and you need that employee to provide a service to the client/partner. In this case the employee will be temporarily assigned to the Spanish collaborating company as the destination of the service. Our lawyers will prepare all the necessary documents for you.
