Generally, foreign investors may freely establish a Mexican company or acquire stock in an already established one.

  • Limited liability company (used frequently)

  • Partnership with limited and unlimited liability partners
  • Civil partnership (is of non-commercial nature, and generally used for non-profit entities or by professional practitioners)
  • Joint venture contract (although not a legal entity, is treated as a separate entity for income tax purposes)
