    Default Trading laws query in Spain!

    I am wondering if anyone is able to offer any advice regarding the current laws surrounding street trading?

    I would be particularly interested to know more about the laws and restrictions related to selling food.

    Many thanks in advance!!

    Hello Radders,

    Welcome to our forum.

    The regulations related to street selling vary from one province to another, though there are common requirements such as:

    - Requirement to be in possession of a valid work & residence permit if you are a foreigner
    - Register with the Social Security Institute as self employer worker
    - Sign up for at the tax office related to the specific activity – products you will be selling
    - If it is food that you will be selling, you will need to have passed the tests in order to obtain the food handling license
    - Obtain your street vendor license and register at the street vendorīs registry at the town hall of the corresponding city/town/village

    There are various ordinances issued by each town hall where they specify in which areas you are allowed to sell, as well as other specific requirements.
