According to Chilean law, the buyer who acquires the shares or assets will be responsible for any tax liabilities that may have been generated prior to the purchase itself. This applies not only to tax matters, but also to other areas of law such as labour law.
Countries across the region are currently reforming their legislative frameworks, bringing them into line with global norms. While some Latin American countries carry certain risks for businesses, the larger economies are much safer, and almost all regions are taking measures to improve their legal and regulatory structures in a bid to stamp out fraud and corruption. In the meantime, firms can take steps to protect themselves when entering into a deal, and perhaps the most important measure is thorough due diligence prior to closing the transaction.
