Costa Rica Business Permits and Requirements

There is a series of business permits and requirements that must be met in order to create a company in Costa Rica. Besides, if you do not have all the administrative permits, your company or business would not meet all the legal requirements to operate in Costa Rica.

Part of the responsibility of a business manager or owner is to fulfill to the last detail all the necessary operating permits for the good company’s performance.
