The Complexities Of Importing into Mexico

Mexico has the 3rd strongest economy in North America, after the USA and Canada, and is considered the strongest Latin American economy. Mexico is home to several large data centers, many of which belong to multinationals such as Kio Networks. With 58% of the population being daily internet users, Mexico is unique in Latin America for its moderate tax and duty rates. They do, howeverhave an incredibly complex tax structure and several compliance needs. One of the greatest considerations when shipping into Mexico is the type of pallet used due to strict regulations regarding the material they are made from. An error here will result in goods being shipped back to you at your own expense.
