Xolo will assist you with the registration process.
There are two different processes that will allow you to legally work as a freelancer in Spain.
The first step of the registration is mandatory for anyone that starts freelancing in Spain and wants to generate (legal) invoices. This is completed via the Spanish Treasury (Hacienda) and it is free of charge. Please note that once you're registered, you'll be obligated to report taxes to the Spanish tax authorities (AEAT).
autónomo registration with Social Security is an additional step and mandatory depending on your individual professional situation (type of activity, volume and frequency of invoicing, etc.). This procedure is also free, but you'll need to start paying the monthly fee (otherwise known as "cuota de autónomos").
If you have not been registered with the local authorities yet, the process of registering as a professional starts once you have submitted a short summary of your business and personal details during the Xolo onboarding process and indicated that you would like to register with the local authorities. The first step is to register with the Spanish Treasury (Hacienda). The registration process takes 1-2 days and you'll receive confirmation from Xolo once the process has been completed.
When it's necessary for you to register yourself as an autónomo with Social Security, Xolo will notify you directly and walk you through the registration process.
