Gestoria

A gestor is a concept that many foreigners, new to Spain, have trouble understanding as the profession simply does not exist in their home countries. Gestors came into being because traditionally

the bureaucracy in Spain was complicated (and to large degree continues to be).

In other words, the Gestor is a profession dedicated principally to helping you with Spanish Bureaucracy. Luckily there are many English speaking Gestors in the popular costal towns on hand to help.

Every Spanish town has at least one Gestor. They are a necessary part of life because Spanish government and council officials are notoriously slow and nit-picking. Bureaucratic procedures are archaically complex and have to be slavishly followed to the letter.

However, rather than single-handedly wrestling with these bureaucrats you can sit back and let a Gestor do the slog for you. A Gestor is generally efficiently attentive to there's clients and the fees are normally very reasonable. Gestors are professionals and also belong to a Colegio.

Gestor is a general purpose consultant who can make your life in Spain much easier. Working in an office known as a Gestoría, they acts as an intermediary in your relations with the various official bodies. They knows the workings of many council and local government corridors and is usually able to obtain an official permit or document far quicker than you could on your own – even if you were fluent in Spanish.

Warning
Although a Gestor will advise you on what you can claim and what you should not claim when completing any income or allowance sections of a form, remember it is you who signs the form at the end of the day and you are responsible for your own declaration.

Be aware that a Gestor is not a Lawyer or a Tax Consultant and in certain specialist areas it may be necessary to seek the advice of these more qualified professionals.

Services
If you are not resident in Spain, then a Gestor will make sure that the bills get paid and that your home is still there and waiting for you when you return.

The average Spaniard would not consider trying to obtain certain permits and licences without using a Gestor. So why try to survive without using a Gestor?

Typically, a Gestor will be able to handle the following matters for you:

 
Taxes

Administration of income and wealth tax for residents and non-residents alike. Payment of local taxes such as rates (IBI), rubbish, and car tax for Spanish vehicles.

Conveyancing

A Gestor can handle all of the legal work and tax payments required for a property purchase or sale.

Vehicles

They can arrange for change of ownership and addresses to be registered, as well as helping with paperwork involved in obtaining a Spanish driving license and importing vehicles.

Business

If you decide to set up a business, then a Gestor will offer essential advice on preparing employment contracts and paying social security contributions.

NIE residency

A Gestor can help you obtain a residency permit.
They can also arrange for your national foreigner identification number (NIE) to be issued. You will need this number after buying a local property.

Insurance

Many Gestors are insurance agents and can arrange insurance for your life, house, and car.

Wills

Your Gestor can give you advice on preparing a will for your Spanish property, as well as liaising with the local notary for the signing of the will.

Permits

Your Gestor can also arrange for your fishing and hunting licenses to be issued – as well as a gun license.

 

In addition to the above you will find your local Gestor a source of information and practical advice for resolving the various administrative problems that appear in everyday life.

 
 

 

Best choice, before, during and after the holiday!
