The implementation of Law 1258 of 2008 made the SAS possible and facilitated the process of establishing such a corporation by simplifying the procedures previously needed. The main change is that an SAS does not require a specific number of partners in order to form the company. This change propelled entrepreneurs and helped to transform the entrepreneurial landscape of the country by allowing individuals to engage in different activities and business endeavours.

Presently, the SAS model is used by the vast majority of foreign investors who want to establish a small or medium size business

Presently, the SAS model is used by the vast majority of foreign investors who want to establish a small or medium sized business. Unlike other models such as the Anonymous Corporation (SA), the SAS in Colombia does not require the individual to create a board of directors or have a minimum number of associates. In addition, it is not only more flexible and economical but it also minimises the risks of loss, as creditors cannot touch personal assets of the person under this scheme.
