REAL ESTATE

Foreigners should exercise a higher level of caution and discernment when purchasing property in Mexico. That being said, it should not discourage you from purchasing property in Mexico. It will probably be the best investment that you will make. Nevertheless, as the saying goes, “buyers beware”.

  • After receiving the tax registration number, advise the local government of the opening of a mercantile establishment.
  • Register with National Business Information Registry (Sistema de Información Empresarial).
  • File notice with National Institute of Statistics, Geography and Information.
  • Obtain authorization to use the company name from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores).
  • Sign the incorporation deed before a notary public and obtain a tax registration number.
  • Register the deed in the Public Register of Commerce.
  • Obtain the tax ID number by registering with the Ministry of Finance and Credit (Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público).
  • Register with Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), and open individual retirement savings accounts for employees.

WHAT ARE MAQUILADORAS?

Maquiladoras are factories in Mexico that are owned and run by a foreign company. They manufacture the company’s products in Mexico and then export them to other countries. Maquiladoras in Mexico operate under preferential tax and fiscal programs that are administered and established by Mexico and the foreign country, meaning that most production equipment and materials that the maquiladoras use are allowed to enter Mexico, on a temporary basis, without needing to pay taxes.

Globalization and competition have forced some U.S. companies to set up offshore assembly plants, particularly in China and other Asian countries. Offshoring is a practice that has existed for decades and continues today.

The main reasons for setting up these foreign assembly plants include:

  • Inexpensive labor
  • Fewer environmental regulations
  • Reduced taxes
  • Fewer government regulations (building and construction operations)
IMMEX Program

The IMMEX program, formally known as the IMMEX maquiladora program, allows foreign manufacturers to import raw materials and components into Mexico, tax and duty free, under the condition that 100% of all finished goods will be exported out of Mexico within a government mandated timeframe.

The primary goal of the IMMEX Mexico program is to expand the Mexican economy by enabling foreign companies to manufacture in a competitive environment, which creates jobs throughout the entire socioeconomic spectrum. The program also aims to modernize the globalization of Mexico’s manufacturing infrastructure by bringing new, specialized technologies and knowledge to the region.
