Regulatory Advisory (Foreign Investment Screening) February 2021
In a Nutshell: the (Triple) Reform of the Foreign Direct Investment Screening Regime in Spain
In the framework of a larger urgent legislative package to ease the effects of the Covid-19 crisis in the economy in the spring of 2020, the Spanish Government put in place a new foreign direct investment screening system applicable to non-EU/non-EFTA companies. This screening system has been amended twice in the course of 2020 with the aim of clarifying or expanding it to include EU investments. We condensate the various reforms and resulting status of the FDI screening regime in a single page here.
