Doing Business in Argentina: Incorporation and Company Formation

Doing Business in Argentina: Incorporation and Company Formation


Since 2005, LIMERES has been assisting companies from all around the world with incorporation and company formation by incorporating their entities in Argentinian jurisdiction in order to be doing business in the Republic of Argentina. In addition, our law firm assists foreign national companies and individuals interested in growing their business models in Argentina by helping them obtain an incorporation deed, an Argentine tax identification number, and one or many bank accounts with the major banks operating in Buenos Aires and at the major cities in Argentina such as Cordoba, Mendoza, Rosario or Santa Fe, just to mention a few cities and provinces. In fact, these three basic requirements are the minimum necessary to be fully operating in compliance with what Argentine agencies require for all companies conducting business in Argentina.

Doing Business in Argentina

Essentially, so that a business can be operating in compliance with all Argentine agencies and business laws in general they must file for a business deed. This corporate deed will establish who the shareholders are, what their legal address is, their Argentine tax ID numbers, the legal name of the business, the amount of shares subscribed by each shareholder, the amount of funds to capitalize the company, the object of the corporation, the maximum amount of years the corporation will be valid which is 99 years, and the date in which the company was incorporated.


The tax identification number, known as CUIL, stands for –Clave Única de Identificación Laboral-, which is the equivalent to USA’s EIN – Employment Identification Number. Not to be confused with Argentina’s SSN – Social Security Number- which is called CUIT –Clave Única de Identificación Tributaria-. This CUIL is for paying taxes, having employees, and being able to issue invoices, and it’s a basic requirement to open a corporate bank account.

    First, the bank account will be utilized to pay salaries, receive payment from any payments made to the company while doing business in Argentina, and will be utilized to receive funds from abroad in U.S. dollars, Euros, or Argentine pesos. For other currencies, special accounts would have to be set up or the currencies will be converted to Argentine pesos upon impacting the account.
