I am thinking about opening a recovery house in santo domingo for women to recover from surgical procedures. Medical Tourism is big and its not slowing down. I would be providing laundry services, meals, nurses 24/7 and security. I would appreciate some advise on business laws and taxes out there. I live in the US and I will be traveling back and forth with local staff hired running the place. Would I have to register the company in DR? Do I have to register the business at all? do I have to declare that money in USA as income since it wasn't earned in USA?
I'd appreciate any business contacts? Any direction I should go to start? Yes, I have vacationed in Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, Sosua and Santo Domingo, all in all I've visited DR 8x. My father is Dominican from La Vega. I have not stayed in the county for more than 10 days.
Any advise is appreciated. Thank you
