When you want to start your own business on Curaҫao, there are several permits you need to obtain, and certain procedures you need to follow. There are different types of businesses, such as a sole proprietorship, or you could be a director/owner/shareholder of a (limited liability) partnership or corporation, for example. Depending on the type of company you want to register, you need to request a permit to establish a business, and/or a management permit at the permit office, after which MEO (Ministry of Economic Developments) will evaluate your request.
Depending on your status within your company (director, shareholder, or employee), and depending on whether or not you are registered as a Curaҫao resident, you may also need to request a work permit, and submit and investment plan. In some cases it is a good idea to work with an accountant, who could help create an investment plan for you.
