About Us

Afimar is a small office with a team of 10 very experienced bi-lingual professionals. We opened in 1994, in the same offices in the centre of Fuengirola that we occupy today.

Paco Fernández Barrionuevo is a qualified Economista with 20 years of experience. He leads our accountancy and tax department. Luisa Carrillo Peláez, Ana María Medina Delgado, Carolina Ruíz Jiménez and Antonio Doblas González work with Paco, and they have between 10 and 20 years of experience each.

They offer advice and assistance with bookkeeping, VAT and taxes for businesses, self-employed and companies, as well as helping with taxes for individuals, residents and non-residents.

Ana Fernández Martínez is a qualified lawyer, specialising in payrolls and labour law, with 25 years of experience in the field. Her assistants are Juan Campos Gómez and Sandra-Jane O’Brien, who have 10 and 25 years of experience.

They help with staff contracts, payrolls and social security for employees. They also help with company formations, business registrations, licences and trademarks.

Mari Carmen Ortega Aparicio is our office manager, with 20 years of experience. She’s often the first point of contact on the phone or at the door, and she also runs our purchasing and our billings and collections.
