Business Services

In the past few years, Uruguay has become a target location for Regional Business Centers,
especially as a hub, where the main operations conducted (sometimes combined) are as follows:

Many international companies choose Uruguay to provide services to other Latin American Spanish speaking countries, to Brazil, and the world.

The most developed business schemes include the location of regional Headquarters, F & A BackOffice services, HR services, supply chain coordination, as well as the centralization of intra-company trading or procurement for all their regional operations.

The country is a particularly strategic site for the development of logistics and trading activities, both as a result of its geographic location and advantageous legal & tax framework.

Although Uruguay has special advantages for the location of captive centers, it is also a privileged destination for outsourced centers focused on high-value tasks (BPO & KPO CENTERS).

The Offshoring services exports represent 18% of total Uruguayan Exports (goods & services).
