Approximately 85% of NAPS’ client base chooses to expand to Mexico under “shelter,” which means they operate under a Mexican corporation owned by NAPS. Because these foreign companies have no “legal” presence in Mexico, they also avoid any liability associated with doing business in Mexico but still benefit from all government tax and duty abatement programs, such as the IMMEX Program (formally maquiladora program which allows manufacturing companies to import equipment and raw materials tax-free and manufacture in Mexico, so long as the finished products are exported for sale off Mexican soil) and PROSEC. Below is a list of advantages associated with operating under a NAPS Mexico shelter corporation.
- No Legal Liability in Mexico
- Reduce Labor Costs
- Payroll and Benefits Management
- Economies of Scale
- Labor Flexibility (Seasonality)
- Quicker Start-Up
- Immediate Access to Special Corporate Certifications (If Needed)
Finding the Right Shelter Service Provider
