Currently, in Honduras there are areas in different cities that are called free trade zones. This is a benefit that is available to international companies wishing to invest within the country.
This Free Zone Law grants the status of a free zone in the entire Honduran territory, so that commercial and industrial companies can establish themselves and function with this status, if their operations are related to exports and complementary activities. This law actively promotes the opening of new businesses and foreign investments.
A Free Trade Zone, is an area where a company can operate exempt from taxes and / or with reduction in bureaucratic procedures. Among the benefits that can be mentioned for free zones include the following:
- Exemption from payment of customs duties, charges, surcharges, internal taxes, consumption and other taxes and charges on goods introduced in the Area, which are directly related to customs operations of import and export.
- Exemption from payment of taxes and municipal contributions.
- Exemption from the payment of Income Tax.
