Company registration in Costa Rica

Many entrepreneurs establish companies in this particular jurisdiction. The data of foreign investors is reliably protected due to the fact that Costa Rica has entered into an extremely limited number of agreements on the exchange of information. Income that comes to the state from other countries is not taxed. Tax fees are levied solely on transactions carried out within the jurisdiction. What else attracts foreign capital owners is the opportunity to obtain a residence permit in Costa Rica by investing 200+ thousand dollars in the development of a local commercial structure. In general, Costa Rica is an offshore zone loyal to foreigners.
