National and Local Efforts Make Tenerife the Best Business to Buy In

One after another, the Government austerity measures set in place to improve the Spanish economy are bouncing back with positive results, resulting in a mass consensus between 45% of business owners that Spain's economy will be fully recovered within 12 months. This means that Spain is the second-most optimistic large economy in the Eurozone with only Germany in the lead.

These national reforms have spurged sudden business investment in Spain, as well as increase employment and decrease layoffs. But where in Spain should you invest? We discuss what the local Government has been doing to make Tenerife the best place in Spain to buy a business.

Why there are so many businesses for sale in Tenerife – and why you shouldn't worry about it!

One of the number one causes for concern that prospective Tenerife business buyers have is why they see so many businesses around for sale in the first place. Made evermore cautious by the whispers of wounded veterans of the last recession, it's easy to come to the conclusion that these businesses are being sold because they are failing.

In fact, less businesses in Tenerife are failing than ever; according to this months' official statistics, business dissolution in the Canaries has dropped by a whopping 32.3% in just one year; which accounts for the largest drop in business failures for any region in Spain. This means that only 65 businesses actually failed last year in the whole Canary Islands, while 344 new ventures were started.

It’s certainly no secret that Spain’s economy has had a rough few years; but with every cloud comes a silver lining, and a new area of opportunity. Over the past few years the government has undertaken a series of radical labour reforms which now directly benefit new business owners and investors in Spain.

Various incentives, such as tax breaks, social security deductions, and updated labour laws, are helping to encourage the government’s new vision of an integrated and updated economic model by helping newly self employed people and small businesses stimulate job growth. The aim is to integrate Spain within EU economic guidelines more efficiently by encouraging entrepreneurship – especially from foreign nationals and Spanish youths.
