Mexican Limited Liability Company (S. de R.L.)

This is the most common set-up. The Sociedad de Responsabilidad Limitada. is the Mexican equivalent of a limited liability company. This entity has no minimum starting capital. The S. de R.L. has at least two shareholders and one director,  and protects the shareholder from personal liability. Therefore, most start-ups choose this option.

Mexican Public Limited Company (S.A.)

This format is typically chosen by companies with the ambition to go public. Minimum starting capital is 50.000 Mexican pesos. Just like the S. de R.L., the S.A. has at least two shareholder and one director. Also, this protects shareholders from personal liability.

Mexican branch

In some circumstances, you may find it preferable not to open a separate Mexican legal entity. In that case you can operate in Mexico with your existing foreign legal entity. This always has double taxation consequences. So we recommend having these consequences analyzed by our international tax and tax treaty specialists. Read more here on the pros and cons.
