The partners of the company must to have an Investor-ID (Rut) in Chile, this means that our tax authority, called Internal Revenue Service (SII), demands that the partners must have an identification for commercial purposes (ID), with which the Starting Activities Forms is carried out in chile.

Once you have your Investor-ID (Rut) and have a Legal Representative, you need to hire a consulting company in tax issues to carry out the creation and approval of the company at SII.
