Having your own corporation

Gomez Law provides a thorough and comprehensive range of corporate services to ensure that your business operation in Costa Rica will run smoothly, allowing you to concentrate on making money. The costarican legislation allows both nationals and non-nationals (residents or non-residents) to constitute and own corporations so that they may engage in any licit activities.

In accordance with article 17 of the Commercial Code, there are four types of mercantile entities:
Anonymous Society (S.A.)
Limited Liability (S.R.L or LTDA)
Commandite or limited partnership (S.E.S.)
General partnership (S.E.C.)

Usually, the Anonymous Society and the Limited Liability are the most used corporations, and our corporate department offers you the possibility of purchasing a pre-constituted company or begin the incorporation process from scratch.

TIPS: Take advantage of shelf corporations to save time.
