What are the Corporate Compliance Requirements for Legal Entities in Mexico?

With one of the highest local populations in Latin America, Mexico is spearheading positive, consistent economic performance, growth and development in the region. Booming and emerging sectors provide a wealth of opportunities for businesses and investors. Additionally, Mexico’s geographic proximity and key trade deals with major regional partners give businesses in the country expansive reach into both North and South America.

The Mexican General Law of Corporations outlines the general legal compliance requirements that all companies must adhere to. This includes the obligation of all resident companies to keep regular, accurate records of the company shareholders’ contact information, amount of time in each shareholder meeting, and any changes in the share capital.

A local registered address is required for companies residing in Mexico, and all companies listed publicly must file financial reports with the Mexican Securities and National Banking Commission. Companies must distribute up to 10% of the annual income with their employees, according to local employment laws.
