Opening a representative office is the fastest and most cost effective way to enter a local market.
Thanks to a representative office, a foreign company can be registered as a legal entity and has full right to promote its business in the local market.
Representative offices are commonly used for marketing, networking and corporate image purposes. Taxation, setup and accountancy costs are very low, but there are some severe limitations to the company’s activities.
A representative office cannot produce income in the local market and costs cannot be deducted since there is no obligation to produce an accountancy statement. Costs can however be deducted from the controlling company abroad producing evidence and documentation about the relationship between the two companies.
Our staff of consultants can manage the representative office setup process and provide consultancy about its permissions, benefits and limitations.
