Investing in Nicaragua

Nicaragua is located in the heart of Central America and has stood out in recent years for consistent economic growth, strategic location and for being one of the safest countries in the region.
Today there exist many opportunities for investors that establish a business in Nicaragua. With a low barrier of entry, even compared with other countries in the region, the process for incorporating a company in Nicaragua is fast and easy from start to finish. This means that within a short amount of time an investor would be able to set up a company and begin investing in a country that has a rapidly growing middle class, a robust tourism industry and a national strategy geared towards growth. Also, the government has implemented in the interest of making Nicaragua a competitive option for any investor important incentives that have been pivotal in the exponential growth of import/export industries, manufacturing, forestry and even agricultural sectors.


The best way to set up a business in Nicaragua is through a corporation. The best and most used corporate entity is the Sociedad Anónima or what could also simply be referred to as a stock corporation.

It is important to note that at the moment a Sociedad Anónima or stock corporation is currently the only option available for foreign investors to invest in the country since other regiments require the individual to have either citizenship or permanent residency in Nicaragua.

Other than the aforementioned, the rest of the process for incorporating is straight forward and the requirements are minimal. Additionally, there is no requirement that requires foreign investors to include a Nicaraguan resident or citizen to be part of the corporation.

Some of the benefits of the Sociedad Anónima are as follows:

• Anonymity of the shareholders.
• The entity is considered a Nicaraguan person and it may be used to petition residency for any of its shareholders that are foreigners.
• As a Nicaraguan person the entity is protected by Nicaraguan legislation.
• Unlike the Limited Liability Company, the Sociedad Anónima may continue as long as there are at least 2 shareholders and a Nicaraguan or permanent resident as Legal Representative.

Legal Representation

Since the corporation is a separate legal entity distinct from its shareholders it is required that the shareholders that form the corporation appoint a legal representative to act on behalf of the entity.
The legal representative has to be a Nicaraguan Resident or Citizen and have a domicile in the country.

It is important and recommended that the shareholders designate someone of their trust to assume representation. Additionally, even though the legal representative generally speaking has considerable powers or representation, these can also be limited as the Board of Directors deem reasonable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Corporations must also maintain accounting records in compliance with regulations in Nicaragua and utilize fiscal documents that are in accordance with policies established by Nicaraguan Tax Authorities.

Dear AEA and GCE Colleague

I am happy to inform you that we have established a cooperation alliance with a network of lawyers and accountants from the United States of America called GCE GLOBAL LIMITED.

We have been searching in the last months for a cooperation with an American Network. We are the largest network of Lawyers in Europe in what relates to the number of offices and countries covered. In USA there are many lawyers networks. The practice of networking and cooperation between lawyer firms is much more extended in USA than in Europe. So it is a good business opportunity to establish an alliance with a network based in USA.

GCE Global is a network leader in the area of strategic planning, support and development for small, medium and large Enterprises nationally and internationally. It is a group of consulting firms of Law and Accounting.

The majority of the firms of GCE Global are located in America. They have offices in USA, Mexico, Guatemala. Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile, Argentina. Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Dominican Republic.

Outside America the presence is very limited as they only have offices in China, Indonesia and UK.

Therefore it is a good business opportunity for AEA members as we can get referrals coming from America.

The AEA members can attend the events of GCE global as if they were GCE members. In the same sense GCE members will be able to attend the AEA Congresses. GCE members have been invited to attend the AEA 15th International Congress in Barcelona the 20 and 21th May. They will have the same opportunities as AEA members and therefore will give a presentation of two minutes of their offices and will pay no registration fee.

The main goal of this alliance is to increase referrals so that AEA members can get more work.

AEA keeps growing in these difficult times.

You have more information about GCE Global in their website www.GCE.global

Kind regards.

Fortus in the House

This past week GCE Global hosted Fortus Group in the House. In a webinar, CEO Joao Custodio talked about the different business pipelines under which Fortus Group Brazil operates and emphasized on the new ways in which human resources processes will be conducted by outsourcers and companies. In times of uncertainty it seems like every company has been forced to cruise on a learning curve, at a fast pace, and a lot of changes are highly affecting corporate morals. Nonetheless, Custodio projects that even though it will take longer than expected to overcome this situation, hope and persistence will be essential to ensure entrepreneurial success in times of struggle.

Among the several topics discussed, we referred to the movie Up in the Air and the predictable times of massive “let go” in many industries. It is not only discouraging for many to lose their source of income, but also the different techniques put in place for such protocols. For example, digital communication platforms being used as means to let people go, just like it was predicted in 2009. Getting fired from home is the new way to do it. Even though many would disagree, Custodio believes these measures do not make a difference and do not have an impact in society. He explained that mistakes in the processes of human resources can be made either in person or through virtual means, both highly impacting the executing company. According to him, “it is not the means but the way in which these proceedings are executed that really matter”.

Furthermore, Custodio was asked about the success of Fortus group during such hard times and thru the current political situation in Brazil, to which he gave a strategic response. Custodio believes that they key to success in Fortus group has been working with transparent clients and encouraging employees to come together to overcome this situation. In regards to Brazil, he still believes that democracy is the strongest weapon against corruption and that institutions are still doing it right, yet politicians are the ones hampering the system. For approximately 16 years Fortus group has consolidated a history of successful business in Brazil, especially in Fortus Accounting, Fortus HR, and Fortus Legal. Do not hesitate to go Fortus, a firm that ensures transparency and success.

The long-term mentality is not popular in modern life and possibly has not been so throughout history. However, it is the safest way to achieve goals that people and organizations set. This is so for a powerful reason: the long-term mentality always operates with time in its favor.

There is no better ally (or worse enemy), than time. Before him all the resources that individuals have pale. He marches at his pace in an impassive, ruthless and unforgiving way. Its power raises one of two options: it faces its energy or takes advantage of it.

“Everything heals, accommodates and resolves over time.”

This is a statement that people understand well and accept. However, in addition to this, it is not a premise that they put into practice when it comes to setting goals and achieving them.

The human being worships immediate retribution, instant response. He has a short-term mentality that responds to an unconscious hedonism, the insecurity he possesses and all the fears that possess him. People recognize their mortality, the short time their experiences will have on this earth. That is why they strive to reach their goals quickly. However, they do not realize that this equally affects the effectiveness and efficiency of the processes.

The effectiveness of the short-term mentality is precarious by nature. The proportion of successes in relation to the attempts is reduced. In the short term the successes are always smaller than the failures.

On the other hand, in a process governed by the short-term criterion, efficiency is struck by disorder, excessive investment of energy and a heavy burden of psychological factors: anxiety, frustration, saturation, exhaustion, etc.

Processes that are guided by short-term premises are less likely to succeed and are more expensive.

The energy required is large. It must be applied with emphasis on short periods of time. That on the one hand. On the other, energy must also cover the costs of failures that occur.

Statistically, the probability of failure is always greater as long as the time to measure the result is shorter. To the extent that there is more time to evaluate the results, failure becomes a more manageable variable.

What are the recommendations that the short-term mentality issues for the treatment of failure ?: accept it, understand it, overcome it, take advantage of it, etc. It does not emphasize the possibility of AVOIDING it. He lives with failure and works all the techniques to be able to process it benignly.

The long-term mentality, on the other hand, is aimed at avoiding failure by taking time as an ally.

How does the long-term mentality operate?

1.- Address the treatment of objectives without PREMURA.-

This means no sense of urgency or haste to reach them. And this should not be confused with dissatisfaction because it is pure and powerful strategic sense. The reason is simple: every process can be classified as urgent or important, and if it is treated in one way it cannot be the other.

The urgent must be treated promptly, of course, but the very sense of urgency (which has so much of “emergency”) is not something that is desirable. On the other hand, when one does not work with “urgencies” (in any type of process), the treatment of the important arises, which is a qualitatively superior state.

When discarding haste, the long-term mentality automatically places itself in the treatment of the important, and thus optimizes the use of time.

People do not perceive that the short-term mentality tends to generate urgencies everywhere. And they don’t realize that the demands of it cause more time wasting than there would have been with a long-term vision.

Who wants to be effective in dealing with their objectives should address the important and avoid the uncontrolled emergence of emergencies.

Everyone must recognize that the quality of decisions (in whatever way) is always greater when there is no haste.

You live in a culture that mystifies the ability of people to make decisions “under pressure” and be expedited. It is implied that “time is money” and cannot be wasted. But problems and failures associated with haste are harvested, and with them irremediable waste of time.

2.- The long-term mentality is conservative.-

It does not mean that it does not risk, because finally taking risks is an imperative of evolution. But it does so by keeping, respecting and protecting the interests involved, especially the most important ones.

The logic of “saving” involves not compromising all the resources or measures available in a single effort.

The sense of “respect” is linked to the nature of the risk. Not to underestimate it, to evaluate carefully and conscientiously all the variables that will be involved in the process.

And finally, the premise of “protect” refers to all the actions that must be established to take care of the good state of the objectives, resources and efforts that are invested.

Military strategists always refer to their “reserves” when they undertake their tasks and objectives. They never expose all their resources in the contest. They keep some of them with the purpose of responding to negative or positive eventualities, because in the first case “reserves” can avoid failure and in the second case guarantee victory. The short-term mentality tends to liquidate “reserves” very soon, because, among other things, it assumes that the time is short to achieve the purposes.

Winners never avoid risk, but respect it. They don’t ignore it or underestimate it, they just respect it. Decisions made quickly do not have a deference to risk, rather they increase it.

Finally, the “protection” of objectives and resources refers to the need to make forecasts. The long-term mentality does it profusely. And it does not assume the risk of losing competitive opportunities or advantages. Forecasts should exist when important things are addressed, either in the form of alternative courses of action, appropriate information, additional resources, minor objectives, protection of the starting point, etc.

3.- The long-term mentality fully understands what Investment means.

There is no benefit if it is not invested first. This is clear to the long-term mentality. And the main investment that privileges is time, curiously the most valuable of all the factors that can be invested.

The short-term mentality does not favor the investment of time in the same way as other factors. In reality, and by logic, it is the least invested. In doing so ignores the benefits that the most valuable of man’s resources can provide.

While the short-term mentality assumes that there is a “waste of time” when the processes are longer than expected, the long-term mentality understands that the “benefits” will be greater the longer it is invested.

Now, don’t confuse things. The reference to investment of time has nothing to do with dysfunctions that may exist in the processes, that is, failures as a result of bad management.

The long-term mentality controls the investment of time, manages it in its entirety, makes it a factor that enriches the process. The “waste of time” due to bad management are equal in the consideration of the short or long term.

People carefully invest money and other elements, overcome reluctance and resentment, but have a strong sense of scarcity when it comes to investing time, especially if it does not involve immediate retribution. They are not clear about the concept. They understand very little the fact that investing time consciously is the best way to avoid their own waste. Because time passes the same in all cases, but plays in favor when it is not a self-imposed limitation.

You have to be a skilled person to generate benefits in the short term, but whoever manages to successfully manage the magic inscribed in long-term processes is a teacher.

4.- The long-term mentality always obtains greater benefits in the short term.

The reason is obvious: what for the short-term mentality are goals not achieved, for the long term are disputed goals.

When one mentality assumes that the game is over (successfully or not), the other understands that there is still time left to continue accumulating achievements. While some have to deal with failures (objectives not achieved), the others must do so with means that continue to operate in pursuit of achievements over time.

Can a football team be defeated if a score fits within 30 minutes of play? Only if you consider that the party has that extension of time. But if the 90 minutes must be played, a goal against it does not determine the result.

Can a football team assume that it is out of the championship title dispute if it has lost or tied 10 of the 30 games that the contest has? Only if you consider that the 10 games is the total extension of the championship. Otherwise it will assume the inconvenience only as part of the process.

This logic refers to the virtue of the long-term mentality. As time is longer, so are the opportunities.

5.- In the long term the benefits are always greater.-

The human mind focuses on an objective according to the commands given to it. If in a process that has a scale from 1 to 10, the objective is set to 3, the mental focus and articulation of actions are directed there. Then, when resources are reorganized to pursue goal 6, everything must start over. It is different if the initial objective is 10. Because the mind focuses on the major objective and goes through previous stages (3 and 6), as part of a process that is executed successfully.

A more prosaic example can be illustrated with money. If the objective is to accumulate profits of one million, the first 100,000 that are obtained are a rung of the ladder. On the other hand, if 100,000 are considered the primary objective, the million remains a diffuse milestone. And what happens if the first 100,000 have difficulty in reaching? For the short term criterion it will be a probable failure, while for the long term it will be a difficulty.

However, can focusing on the long term leave the intermediate objectives “blurred” in the same way that happens in the opposite case? The answer is no. Objectives and action are not the same. The action always occurs here and now, the objectives are raised at discretion. Who works with long-term goals does not stop acting right now. But the action is of higher quality as long as it must not face the rigors of a merciless factor: time.

6.- In emotional terms the long-term mentality saves energy.-

Reduce anxiety and frustration. This is not a little, because it clarifies and optimizes the judgment. Finally, this is all about the processes to achieve objectives. The common denominator is energy. This is even more important than time, because it guarantees the activity.

Life is a endurance race, not a speed test. Not even for those who favor immediate competitiveness. Performance is always a function of the individual, and it is better as long as the individual is better.

The short term is more likely to emotionally punish people and therefore overrides any competitive potential, present or future. Who walks looking at his feet with the idea of ​​not stumbling, loses perspective, risks walking in circles and without north. Who walks with the view anchored on the horizon may stumble, but will go further.

The long-term mentality is a close companion of wisdom.

It is a measure of qualification of the self-confident man, of being patient who does not mortgage his potential based on mirages of immediate transcendence. It is a recognition to the march of the turtle of the fable that wins the test because the hare runs out prematurely.

The economist John M. Keynes said: “In the long term we will all be dead.” And there is no way to discuss that. Therefore, it is about living in the present without it, every moment, looking like an advance of the end. Short-term expectations are, many times, a premature experience of that final that awaits us all in the long term.

The billionaire launched his first business when he was a teenager, but by age 20 he had started a mail-order company and at 22 he was running a chain of stores. Since then, Branson has founded a large number of companies and conglomerates, including Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, Virgin Express, Virgin Mobile, Virgil Hotels, Virgin Cruises, and Virgin Galactic.

But it is not only his ability to create business success that sets him apart. Branson seems to always be in “happy” mode. When you are not participating in any outdoor sport or extreme hobby, you are spending time with your family and friends that you really seem to love.

According to Branson, creating such a life is quite simple: love others, be grateful for everything you have, be kind and be aware. Oh, and “never say no; Keep going until you succeed. “

So take some advice from the teacher of success and happiness. Use these eight Branson keys and build your own incredible life.

1. Do not measure your success by the amount of money you earn
Too often people measure their success based on the amount of money they earn, but Branson assures us that if we have fun and focus on making the world a better place, the money will come.

In an article posted on his LinkedIn page, Branson wrote: “It is a common mistake to think that money is the metric of success of every entrepreneur. It is not, nor should it be. I’ve never started a business to make money. “

No matter what you have accomplished in life, you should always feel that there is more to be done. Success is a mobile goal: it is about striving to keep growing, but also to appreciate what you have at the moment.

2. Disconnect and focus on face-to-face conversation
Like most of us, Branson loves technology, but he also sees its limits, especially when it comes between him and those he cares for. Nothing can replace a conversation face to face or live in the moment, and for that, you have to be willing to leave your devices aside.

Branson tries to focus his attention on whoever is at his side. He works to actively listen and take notes during meetings, always strives to put aside his cell phone and keep his attention focused on his family during the meal. It also encourages others to put their technology aside when they are in a social environment … at least for a while.

“We can all be more present in our own lives. I really believe that being in the moment is the key to happiness and success, and being constantly stuck on your phone can have a big impact on your relationships, “writes Branson.

3. Have fun in everything you do
If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong. You must find ways to enjoy and appreciate your life in everything you do, says Branson. In other words, instead of working to live, you must live to work because your work is fun and enjoyable.

“Fun is one of the most important and least valued ingredients in any successful business,” writes Branson in the book The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership.

Branson has said that when he no longer enjoys a project, he knows it’s time to move on. “If you’re not having fun, then it’s probably time to try something else,” he says. So stop wasting time doing things you hate or fear because that will only take away the joy and happiness of your life.

4. Find a hobby that makes you leave your house
An important key to happiness, says Branson, is finding hobbies that encourage you to spend more time outdoors. Being outside can help you cope with stress and anxiety, and recharge your batteries. “It’s an excellent way to improve your mood and feel more in control.”

Hiking, biking, and windsurfing are some of the ways in which Branson is revitalized by connecting with nature, but you can also do something as simple as taking your dog for a walk or even walk for a while contemplating the night sky.

As Branson recently wrote on his Facebook page: “Go out and look around. You never know what the stars could inspire. “

5. Dream big
Branson once tweeted: “Dream big and you will be presented with the opportunity to lead the world in an incredible adventure.” Branson’s success began with a bold dream that seemed to be beyond his reach. He was about 20 years old when he released Virgin Records and ended up transforming the music industry.

Everyone told him that his idea would not work, but he did not listen. There was no guarantee that he would succeed, but his belief in his dream fueled his motivation to move on.

Our dreams are what make us who we are. If you never have the courage to try, you will never know what you are capable of.

6. Learn on the fly
Life must be a great learning experience. We must always seek to expand our minds and increase our wisdom and knowledge. Branson never went to college, in fact, he left high school before finishing, but he never stopped learning. Consider life as a long university course and seek to learn at least one new thing each day.

Branson has launched a variety of companies for decades, often in areas he is not familiar with. The key is that, when you immerse yourself in a new industry, says the millionaire, you need to learn quickly, but you must also feel motivated to do so.

According to Branson, if you see a great opportunity, go for it, even if it’s not in an area that you’re familiar with. Focus on learning as you go and take the opportunity to establish new connections. Get started to take advantage of opportunities when they arise.

“You must realize that it does not matter what you do not know because you can always learn it later. Take advantage of the opportunities and do not give in to doubts about yourself, “writes Branson in his blog.

7. Be intrepid in trying new things
Branson has never been afraid to say yes to new concepts, ideas, and activities. This is an important reason why the Virgin Group is now an empire of more than 200 diverse companies. Branson has not limited himself to just one area: he’s branched and open to trying new things.

He encourages everyone to leave their comfort zone. It’s the only way to really see how far you can go.

“I can honestly say that something good has never happened in my life from the safety of my comfort zone. They are all those moments in which you feel challenged, where you think ‘Oh, shit, maybe it was not a good idea’ and then you reflect that if you avoid surrendering, you can overcome this stage of doubt and achieve what you set out to do. I promise you that this is where good things happen, “writes Branson.
8. Make happiness a habit
Take the time to find some happiness in each day; at every moment if you can. Happiness is not the result of success, but coming from within can help you succeed, according to Branson.

“I know that I am lucky to live an extraordinary life

and that most people will assume that the success of my business (and the wealth it brings) has brought me happiness.” But it’s not like that; in fact, it is the opposite. I’m successful and I’m rich because I’m happy, “writes Branson in his blog.

Branson encourages us to stop pursuing happiness as if it were a remote and difficult goal to obtain. Happiness is right in front of you; you just need to recognize it and grab it.

“Stop and breathe. Watch your health. Spend time near your friends and family. Become present for others and let them be there for you. Be bold, even if it’s just for a minute, “he says.

Some of the areas that play a very important role in organizations is human talent or human resources. The team that makes up this area fulfills the function of accompanying and providing all the necessary tools to the collaborators; since they begin their selection process, signing of contract and completion of tasks.

How many companies have the right team of human talent? People who are responsible for human talent in organizations must have the ability to create strategies, which are aimed at properly managing the recruitment process of staff, avoid job desertion, reduce costs, manage the payroll of employees, focus on motivational issues, etc …

All this requires time and a specialized team with all the capabilities to create, lead and take these strategies to action; there are companies that have experts that offer this service under the outsourcing modality. Before naming the multiple advantages of hiring outsourcing of human talent, we will clarify two terms that are often confused.

Difference between outsourcing and outsourcing

Outsourcing and outsourcing of human resources are two concepts that serve the same purpose: to recruit the right personnel for the company and execute strategies for continuous improvement of the climate and organizational culture. The difference of both concepts is framed in the following: It is called outsourcing when the company that takes the services is not a company specialized in human talent. For example, it would be called outsourcing to a chocolate manufacturer that wants to delegate the human resources tasks of its factory and hires a company specialized in human talent management. Now, if a recruiter or a company that offers human talent administration services decided to delegate the tasks of lifting profiles, personnel management to another company would be doing outsourcing work, since it is leaving in the hands of a third party the activities of your business.

Having clear the difference between these concepts, we will show the advantages of implementing outsourcing of human talent in organizations.

Time optimization

There are several administrative functions that a company requires for its growth, forming the ideal team of human talent demands a long run.

Costs reduction

Our team of human talent within its strategies always takes into account the reduction of costs, this is evidenced in the management to avoid work desertion, its criteria for the selection of the profiles that companies need, excellent management in the administration of Payroll, etc …
