Extracts from commercial register of Nicaragua

Schmidt & Schmidt provides extracts from the commercial register of Nicaragua with a translation and apostille.

Republic of Nicaragua is a sovereign state in Central America, and the largest country of its region by area. This is a presidential republic. Local currency is the Nicaraguan córdoba. Official language is Spanish, with seven regional languages recognised (including English). Nicaragua is a member of the United Nations, World Trade Organisation, International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank.

Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in the Americas. Its economy is mainly based on agriculture. Remittances also play an important role in the Nicaraguan economy. Another major sector is tourism. Most of the population is employed in the services sector. Some experts think that most economic activities in Nicaragua are carried out in the informal sector, without any official registration.

Nicaragua is not an offshore jurisdiction. At the same time, Nicaragua is closely monitored by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), namely, the country’s measures against money laundering and terrorist financing.

Business activities in Nicaragua are regulated by the Civil Code, Commercial Code, and other relevant laws.
