México is a federal republic located in North America bordering on the United States, Guatemala and Belize. Teeming cities, deserts and jungles shape the landscape. México is the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world. México City, the capital, federal parliament and centre of the federal powers of the union, is the country’s largest city as well as its main cultural, political, educational and financial centre. This global city is the oldest capital city in the Americas and the most important financial district. México boasts one of the highest gross national incomes in Latin America
México has one of the largest economies in Latin America with a huge oil production capability as well as silver production. The electronics industry has grown enormously and is, along with the automotive and tourism sectors, one of the main sources of income. México operates a strong banking system, in which private banks are profitable and well-capitalized. The financial and banking system is strongly influenced by foreign corporations.
Contracting in Latin America is not a simple task and has many on-costs for employers. Most in country tax laws do not recognise contractors per se, hence contract workers may need to be remunerated as employees, taxes withheld and paid to various city, state and federal governments, and reserve funds held for other entitlements until end of contract. Please contact CXC Global for professional advice on the specific legislation applying in the country in order to facilitate contractors and foreign nationals working in México. Forward planning is of the essence to optimize costs. México has entered into Double Taxation Treaties with other countries.
