lrzepiennik replied to lrzepiennik's topic in The Costa Rica Business Forum - Doing Business in Costa RicaThank you all for your help! Does anyone know what the definition of "work" is when it comes putting time into the business? If I am making my own product does that count as work? Does selling the product count?
lrzepiennik posted a topic in The Costa Rica Business Forum - Doing Business in Costa RicaHello Everyone! So my girlfriend and I are planning on moving down to the Manuel Antonio area next fall. Knowing that we can not be employed without residency, we are planning to open a small business. That being said, I am still trying to understand the intricacies of labor laws. We are building this business from the ground up and therefore there is a lot of work to do. I am having trouble figuring out how we can get this business going without actually being involved in the "day to day" operations of the business. We look forward to employing as many ticos as we can, but we cannot employ anyone until we get the business going. Any ideas on this?
