Depending on the type of activity that is carried out, the purchase of a commercial premise should be made considering the size of the premise, as well as the equipment that is used. In this way, it must be determined whether the premises have ventilation and smoke ventilation systems, for example, provided that the premises you are looking for are aimed at restaurants or hotels.

One of the keys to ensuring the viability of a business is to study how to work from the competition and design a strategy to differentiate from it. In this case, however, it is always useful to analyze the activity of businesses in the area to adopt similar strategies. In this way, examining the spaces and activities developed by the competition can avoid future mistakes and improve the profitability of the work space.

In reference to the process of buying a commercial premises, the economic amount to be paid by the future owner is a fixed amount, added to a percentage of the sale price of the property. In other words, the amount is added to an amount that ranges between € 600 and € 1300, plus 0.1% of the sale value of the property. Likewise, the buyer of the commercial premises, in the same way as in the homes, must pay the tax applied by the government for the purchase of properties. In this case, we are talking about 4% of the final sale value that has been agreed, divided into two parts: 2% for the common where the property is and 2% remaining to the Government of Andorra.
