Doing business in Spain 2015 : comparing business regulations for domestic firms in 17 autonomous communities, 2 autonomous cities, and 5 ports with 188 other economies : Overview (anglais)

Doing business in Spain 2015 is the first subnational report of the doing business series in Spain. It measures business regulations and their enforcement in 17 autonomous communities, 2 autonomous cities, and 5 ports. The autonomous communities, autonomous cities, and ports are compared against each other, and with 188 other economies worldwide. Doing business investigates the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Regulations affecting 4 stages of the life of a business are measured at the subnational level in Spain: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, and trading across borders. The first 4 indicators were selected because they cover areas of local jurisdiction or practice. Trading across borders was selected because it is relevant for Spain’s international trade integration. The indicators are used to analyze economic outcomes and identify what reforms have worked, where, and why. The report also includes a new area of focus that benchmarks the ease of starting operations for an industrial small and medium-size company.
