Business financing

Need and access to finance in Spain and in the EU

In 2010, the INE conducted the Company Access to Finance Survey, an operation that was carried out with standardised criteria in 20 European Union countries. The results enable ascertaining the details of the problems and limitations that small and medium-sized enterprises have in accessing finance.
The companies selected belong to industry, construction and non-financial services, are located within the country, and are not affiliates of other companies. In order to be part of the sample, they must also meet certain other requirements regarding size, activity and growth in terms of employment in the last five years.
