This also may include legal assistance to take advantage of the many benefits related to the numerous Chile Free Trade Agreements and Tax agreements Chile has with numerous countries around the World. For individuals and families, this often means coordinating shipments with things like immigration applications for residency to receive the full tax advantages for the import of personal goods.  Before shipping to Chile, we urge you to please contact us for a free consultation with one of our Chilean Attorneys regarding your shipping and other plans in Chile.
