Maquila Regime

Incentives for Foreign Investments

Maquila is a production regime in which companies located in Paraguay can produce goods and services for export. The production is done under the request of a foreign company (headquarters) through an international contract, and the production can be sent to any country in the world.

The main benefits this regime offers are:

Exemption of import duties on raw material, inputs, parts and components that enter the country temporarily for their transformation and later export.

Exemption of import duties on machinery and equipment related to the Maquila activity during the period established in the contract.

Possibility of national goods and services provision as a complement to the Maquila production system.
Single tax of 1 % to be levied on the value added in national territory.

Companies interested in carrying out Maquila activities must present a “Maquila Program” to the National Council for the Maquila Export Industries (CNIME).

Maquila companies with approved programs must provide sufficient guarantee to the General Customs Office for the amount of the taxes that may eventually be applicable, which shall be canceled and returned when the temporarily imported merchandise exit the country. Whichever type of guarantee presented – global or floating –, it will be exempt from all types of taxes and interests. This guarantee is also applicable when goods, products or services are under the Maquila temporal export regime.

Free Trade Zones Regime

Paraguay offers a free trade zones regime for the establishment of commercial, industrial and services enterprises. Companies established in a free trade zone whose activities are focused exclusively to exports pay a single tax of 0,5% of the total value of gross export income, known as “free trade zone tax”.

Companies which, besides their exports, also sell their products or services in the Paraguayan territory are subject to Corporate Income Tax of 10% of the proportion of products sold in national territory.

Under this regime, machinery, capital goods and raw material enter the Free Trade Zone with a 0% import tax. The commercial exchange of goods and services between Free Trade Zone users, as well the stocking of raw materials and goods, are tax exempt.
