From January to July of 2015, more than 500 businesses have been opened in Fuengirola.
“From the Council, we are doing our best to take every measure possible to give all our support to those who wish to open a company in Fuengirola, especially from the New Businesses Department, where we aim at facilitating all paperwork as much as possible,” said Head of the Department Ricardo von Wichmann, who added: “Thanks to these new businesses, new employment is being created in the town.”
A few years ago, the town council launched a measure through which all those residents who wanted to set up a certain kind of business could do so without a licence, only by telling the Council and paying necessary fees.
“Paper work is extremely easy,” he said, and continued: “When the business is open, the Council will ensure that all regulations are being complied with.”
The new 425 Fuengirola-based businesses include amongst others, travel agencies, fashion shops, hair salons and property agencies.
“These numbers go to show the healthy financial situation of our town,” he concluded.
