Inbound services: Spain business network (SBN)

Building bridges between businesses in Spain and the United States.

PwC's Spain business network assists companies with expanding their international footprint. If you’re thinking about investing—or already have invested—in the United States or Spain, SBN's bicultural, bilingual advisors can help you navigate regulatory, language, cultural and other business challenges. Backed by our global team of trusted service providers, we can also work with your organization to manage assurance, tax and advisory issues, such as mergers & acquisitions, due diligence, valuations and investment exit strategies.

Why invest in the United States?

Spain is one of the largest investors and one of the fastest growing sources of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States. With its large consumer base, America has an estimated 41 million native Spanish speakers living in the country and another 11.6 million bilingual speakers, many of whom are the children of Spanish-speaking immigrants. Access to capital markets and a stable legal environment are among many advantages the United States offers to international investors.

Why invest in Spain?

US companies are some of Spain’s largest foreign investors. The country continues to rebound from its 2013 recession and evolve rapidly, creating a complex business environment for companies around the globe. Spain has generated 36.6% of all the employment created in the Euro Area since 2014. The nation also has one of the most attractive domestic markets in Europe, with 46 million potential consumers as well as 60 million tourists who visit the country annually. The Spanish economy is the world's 13th largest in terms of GDP and the 5th largest in the European Union.
