Register the company before the Mercantile Registry, obtain the certificate of existence and legal representation, register the company’s books, and obtain the Unified tax Registry (RUT) from the Chamber of Commerce
There are no Business Service Centers (CAEs) in Monteria.
The procedural steps required from the Chamber of Commerce are:
-Present the format, the letter, and the company’s books before any of the booths
-Pay the rights to register the books. A payment received is given with which the company can claim the books
Once the company has been registered, its owner or legal representative, must present and request the registry of the commerce books through a letter addressed to the Chamber of Commerce, and fill out the application form; the books or pages duly numbered must also be presented. The first page in each book or set of pages should be labeled in pencil in the upper side with the name of the company and purpose given to each book; the pages must be consecutively numbered and have no accounting entries.
The application form for registering the company is filled out by advisors from the Chamber of Commerce, who also provide the NIT.
