"The main challenges that an expat faces in Barcelona are basically getting used to a completely different taxation regime. From the feedback I receive from all our expat clients, they are used to a more flexible taxation regime with less bureaucratic processes. That is also what makes their life very difficult in the early stages. But once the first quarter of activity has elapsed, and the new system gets more familiar to them Id say they really realize that the business is located in a different country and therefore assume that there is no choice other than live with this new and sometimes complex taxation regime in order to get used to it as soon as possible and get the maximum benefits from it."
