buying car on finance, not yet working in Spain. Possible?

Postby qe2ex » Mon May 06, 2019 12:59 pm

Hello, wondering if anyone have any experience in buying a car at a dealer on finance without working in Spain?
Currently I work and live outside Spain, but will be relocating to Spain next month and start working as an "autonomo". I will be able to show salary slips from my current employer and my tax statement from my own (EU) country, but not much from Spain.

Any chance I would be able to buy a car on finance with my current status? Are there any dealers who are more desperate to sell/expat-friendly?

With kind regards.

If you can prove that you can pay wether from wages or savings you should be ok.

I needed to provide proof of residency and give them a copy of my last years tax declaration. That was for VW Finance where I had a record of a previous finance deal with them.

I don’t think the OP has any chance at all of getting finance under the situation he describes.

It’s not a question of finding a friendly dealer, it’s all down to the bank that is going to lend the money.
