    Hello all, could anyone recommend a business that provides an easy to comprehend but fairly detailed financial healthcheck service for Spanish companies.

    I know there are a few listed on the web but they seem to only provide accounts that date back to 2007 – obviously not too relevant in these times!!!

    I assume not all companies have to publish annual accounts – is this the case? If so, which ones does it apply to?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    RussW. Even in the Anglo Saxon world you will not find such information. It will always be historic, in most times & in the current climate it is totally meaningless.

    Where the companies file returns etc they are not accurate as they are considered as a paper filling exercise which no body takes it seriouly neither the end user nor the producer.

    Speak to your bank. There is a system that they (and many ther companies) use to check the credit rating of a company and they use a mixture of historical accounts and invoices raised (or IVA paid) I don’t know the name of the system but the banks all use it and will tell you the name (its a bit like Experian in the UK). It costs about €5 per search or you can register and pay a subscription if you are using it regular.

    Asnef records bad dect and Cirbe is the spanish equivalent of Experian! However Cirbe might only be for private individuals.

    By law – and Hacienda is very sharp on this – trading companies have to post their accounts monthy and produce a yearly report – the accountants do this and register it at Hacienda. I think there is a spanish versionof companies house where the accounts can be checked and any lawyer can advise you of this.

    Hi,

    if you are going to invest in a development, then make sure that you get a bank guarantee/insurance and that your solicitor checks the validity of such bank guarantee/insurance!

    In addition, as the insurances/bank guarantees have got expiry dates and conditions to get the refund of the moneys, I would suggest that you read them carefully and have them translated.

    Another company you might use would be http://www.axesor.es/
