Foreign companies in Argentina: registration to do business

by 15 Nov 2017Companies, Corporate, Doing business in Argentina

Foreign companies in Argentina enjoy a free and business-friendly environment[1], being the establishment of a subsidiary or a branch the legal vehicles most used.

To establish a subsidiary, either by incorporating a brand new company[2] – with one or more partners – or by acquiring an equity interest in an already existing company, foreign companies must first register themselves with the Public Registry, filing certain documents.

In order to know all the requirements to register a foreign company in Argentina, please review the following article in our Legal Blog: “How to register a foreign company in Argentina“.

Irrespective of the differences between subsidiaries and branches, branches have similar registration requirements[3].
