  1. My wife and I currently have Rentista Residency and have deposited $60K in a CD with a $2500 per month payout to satisfy income requirements. My understanding is that one does not need to guarantee a specific income when applying for Permanent Residency. Since CAJA is typically based on a percentage of stated income, how will the CAJA fee be determined when we apply for Permanent Residency?
  2. Hi all, I have a mid sized hotel here in Costa Rica and I work with a farmer who does works like chopping, cleaning the paths and the small lake and taking care of the trees. He works about 60 hours a week month - full time would be about 190 hours. For me he is a freelancer. He also works for other people or he's growing crops of his own. He has a health insurance from the CCSS via his daughter and is about 53 years old. I wanted to improve his siutation and got an INS insurance for him, so that he's covered for any type of accident that happens while he's working for me. One has to report the monthly hours the INS online. - Some people tell me I would have to pay CCSS for him as well. Is that true? - Would the INS report the hours worked to the CCSS? Anyone heard of such a case? - I was told that if I made a "contrato" with him for certain work tasks under the eyes of a lawyer, I would not have to pay CCSS. Can anyone confirm this? Many thanks in advance! Cheers, Martin Thanks for the heads up, T. I've clarified some things there
