Sound and advantageous legal framework
The Free Trade Zone Regime was established in our country under Act 15.921, also called the Free Zones Act, which was passed on December 17th, 1987. Said Act declared the promotion and development of Free Trade Zones in Uruguay of national interest and set the rules for their exploitation, providing major tax benefits:
- An exemption of all national taxes, whether existent or to be created in future (Income Tax, VAT, Net Worth Tax, among others).
- Free entry and exit of currencies.
- Foreign citizens can be hired and they may opt out of the Uruguayan social security system.
- The State - subject to liability for all damages - guarantees users all the rights, benefits and tax exemptions they are entitled to by law until the termination of the contract.
- Since Free Trade Zones do not fall under the jurisdiction of the State monopolies, the cost of communication and other services are lower.
