Setting up a corporation in Colombia can be complicated. We will walk you through every step to ensure your corporation is completed in a timely fashion. Our professional legal messenger services will save you time and headaches. In most cases, our clients only need to appear at the local Notary Office to complete the majority of their corporate legal paperwork. After that, you can sit back and allow us to handle the rest.

Having experts like COLOMBIA LEGAL & ACCOUNTING S.A. on the ground, working for you, is invaluable because we are familiar with local laws and regulations throughout Colombia. While the basic concepts for conducting business in Colombia are similar to many other countries, there are important differences which we can explain. Some of the major areas where Colombian commercial law varies from other countries’ laws are:

A. Who is Considered an Employee,

B. Worker’s Rights,

C. Worker’s Benefits,

D. Corporate Contracts,

E. Tributary Responsibilities, and, perhaps the most important

F. Cultural Differences
