Company registration provides the following benefits:


  • Using American infrastructure when conducting international business.
  • An option for obtaining an American EB-5 visa for investors when creating a business in Puerto Rico.
  • No withholding tax on dividends and interest from sources outside Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is a Caribbean country, formerly part of the Spanish Empire, and currently Puerto Rico is an associated territory of the United States as a Commonwealth. This means a certain autonomy and self-government of the island while maintaining control by the US authorities.


Citizens of Puerto Rico have US citizenship, but the island is not a state and does not have full representation in the US Congress. Thus, this territory has a special status within the American statehood.
