At Carlos Picos Consultora we are specialists in the creation and administration of Uruguayan Companies.
Uruguayan companies may be acquired both by residents and non-residents in Uruguay, generating significant advantages for non-residents since Uruguay applies the Principle of Jurisdiction of the Source. Therefore, the activity generated overseas and the profits obtained do not pay any taxes.
Uruguayan companies are very much applicable and disseminated worldwide because of the following characteristics:
Uruguay is neither qualified as a tax haven nor a country of low taxation in any jurisdiction.
There is banking, taxing and professional secrecy which can only be lifted through a judicial order in the event of a proven fraud.
Corporations shares can be issued as shares to bearer or registered shares. In both cases, they will comply with the requirements set forth by Law Nº 18.930.
All Uruguayan corporations are ruled by the Law of Commercial Corporations Nº 16.060 which establishes formalities that enable them to be presented before any foreign tax authority. Such a distinctive characteristic makes it different from other jurisdictions offered by countries with low taxation or tax havens.
In addition, we manage the opening of your company bank account, both in local and foreign banks.
