During the last two years of crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and according to data from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), companies that have regional operations in LATAM lost at least 25% of its invested capital leaving more than 2.7 million people without work.

In contrast, these companies are not huge multinationals with thousands of collaborators and lines of products or servicies. On the contrary, ECLAC data shows SMEs and MSMEs that, according to regional statistics, represent more than 75% of the business park of the LATAM region.

Under such a complicated scenario and with an economic perspective that is increasingly closed at the LATAM level, regional SMEs and MSMEs must analyze from various perspectives: what should be their next steps in order to generate efficiency in their resources, recover from accumulated losses and generate competitive advantages over your competitors?


One of the competitive advantages that DFV Asesores developed for its regional clients is the Centralization of Regional Operations from Costa Rica.


The financial, fiscal and legal operations of LATAM have similarities between them. For example, almost all of its fiscal policies are based on Spanish guidelines (Central America and some regions of South America). On the other hand, the Caribbean countries or Mexico base their fiscal policies very much in the North American style.


Just as there are many similarities, their main difference arises with regard to tax compliance processes, not in the interpretation or application of the legislation. For example: Panama uses the tax printer to ensure that income is fully declared to the DGI (General Directorate of Revenue) by taxpayers. In contrast, Costa Rica implemented electronic invoicing as a control method so that Direct Taxation could control the correct payment of tax burdens by taxpayers.


Given the need to generate efficiency in the processes and enhance the resources of our regional clients, we designed the plan: "Centralization of Regional Operations from Costa Rica" which focuses on two aspects:

  1. Deliver financial information in a timely and accurate manner.

  2. Build relationships of trust that provide peace of mind to our customers.

The centralization of regional operations from Costa Rica is a business model that allows compliance with the different legal and financial responsibilities that regional companies must understand in each country; but managing all its accounting, financial and consolidation processing from Costa Rica.


Through different processes and systems, we manage all the accounting processing of regional companies, according to each country and legal or company name. Thus meeting the need to have accurate, up-to-date and timely financial information (this under the information quality and security criteria implemented by DFV Asesores). We deliver financial statements, reconciliations, management reports, consolidation of financial information, projections and budgets, directly to the Board of Directors acting as Regional Operational Financial Managers.


Regarding tax compliance, we have extensive experience in tax and fiscal management in the region (directly in the firm's work team and with advisors and partners throughout the LATAM region). This provides peace of mind that tax operations are being fully covered and that your tax status is up to date. This allows us to anticipate potential risks, analyze them and prepare action plans to minimize or eliminate them. We can also apply different fiscal strategies to generate efficiencies in the payment of taxes without risking the fiscal position of the company in the country and in the region.


The centralization of regional operations from Costa Rica does not focus only on financial processes. It also covers legal processes, treasury, payroll or compensation processing and the general administration process. In this way, from a single country, you have total control of the operation, facilitating decision-making, review of information and standardization of processes at the regional level.



The first step for the implementation is to make a complete diagnosis of the financial, fiscal and legal situation of each one of the companies in their different countries (normally it is known as Due Diligence only that it is applied according to the scale of the operation of the companies and the size of the client) to determine the main risks that the company faces, to have an action plan and resolve or minimize them.

The second step is to survey the financial and accounting information: auxiliaries, spreadsheets and account reports; in order to feed, correctly and flawlessly, the historical information to process the current one. Once this step is complete, the process of reconciling the financial information begins to, once again, guarantee that it is working with correct, real historical data and that it has adequate support.

The third step is to prepare the reports that will be delivered month by month to the Board of Directors (or to the members that the client indicates). DFV Asesores will be in constant communication, for which the monthly financial package is defined and meeting, review and periodic delivery dates are set.


The fourth step, once the previous ones are ready, is to define the strategies that allow the company, in a regional manner, to achieve its objectives; thus managing toenhance its resources and boost its growth.

It is more than proven that the economic and political stability of Costa Rica generates confidence for investment. This reality and the scale-up economy process with which DFV Asesores manages its resources, generates significant operating savings for our clients of no less than 15% of their operation. However, beyond the economic savings of centralizing operations, the efficiency in the delivery of results allows the management of our clients' resources to be maximized, allowing them to focus on real business objectives and not on their back office or management load. administrative.
