Register an offshore company in the best jurisdiction of Latin America and set up a business related to e-commerce and stock exchange investments while paying 0% tax.
In Costa Rica offshore companies can be registered in two ways:
"Resident" company in Costa Rica: If the company is registered as a "resident" it is allowed to develop commercial activity on the territory of Costa Rica and therefore is obliged to pay local tax. If the Costa Rican company is registered as "non-resident" it automatically obtains the status offshore. This means that the company is exempt from all local taxes but cannot carry out any business activity within the boarders of the country nor own a local bank account. Also it is not obliged to present any type of auditing reports to the fiscal authorities.
The most outstanding characteristic of Costa Rican companies is the limited liability of shareholders and the ability to transfer easily shares from one company to another or from one country to another. When registering a company in Costa Rica the Directive body should be chosen to expresses the decisions of the partners. The President, Secretary and Treasurer form the Board of Directors.
All companies registered in Costa Rica require a Fiscal representative, the legal figure that constitutes the company and represents it in relations with government. In a case if there is only one beneficiary, the fiscal is in charge of the constitution and introduction of the rest of the organs. In order to increase the anonymity the fiscal may appoint vice presidents and managers. Each figure will have a specific power and may be used separately or jointly.
Limited liability companies (LTD) were created as an alternative to the limited companies, their operation is much simpler and does not require a lot of formal acts. This type of companies is suitable for small and medium companies. The main advantage of Costa Rican limited companies is that the liability of the shareholders is limited to the amount of their contribution, the share capital. The share capital is divided into individual shares that cannot be sold to the public, unless it is first offered to other partners of the company. There are no requirements for a maximum number of shareholders and one or several managers, which could or not be shareholders of the company, can control it.
Offshore companies in Costa Rica can issue several powers: 1. General Power of attorney: Allows the person to buy, sell, mortgage, authorize to sign checks, invoices, and contract with suppliers. This power may be limited. 2. General Power: This power is only designed to be used for administrative purposes, such as hiring personnel for the company and signing invoices or other documents directly related to the company's business. This kind of power does not allow any type of disposition of the assets of the company. 3. Special Power: The attorney can execute one or more acts, both administrative or of disposition. This power´s main characteristic is that it does not have to be registered in the commercial register.
Offshore companies registered in Costa Rica as non-residents receive the following notarial acts: Articles of Incorporation, Certificate of Ownership, Legal books registered in public registry, First entries in legal books, Certificate of shares and Affidavit of non-use.
The main advantages of registering an offshore company in Costa Rica are the following:
* Incorporation of an offshore company in Costa Rica with a bank account in the name of the company without a physical presence in the country. All arrangements will be made through e-mail and / or certified mail.
