Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you consider an option of company registration in Peru, this may be practically realized in one of these forms:

  • Limited Liability Company − a corporate entity where founders don't risk losing any funds in excess of the contributed - their liabilities are limited. The minimum legally required paid-up capital is USD1. But, practically such has to correspond to the types of activities that an entity is going to conduct with depositing at least 25% of such at the moment for registration. The number of members may be from 2 to 20.
  • Joint Stock Company − an entity that can freely transfer its shares and offer them to the public. The minimum paid-up capital, in this case, is also USD1. But, practically, Peruvian banks don't deposit a sum of chartered capital less than PEN 3,300.00. The liability of shareowners (minimum of two are required to form an entity) is also limited to the value of such shares only.
