Basics of Incorporation in Mexico
If your company has several shareholders and you need a formal agreement with your partners, the most convenient for you is the scheme of a Sociedad Anónima de Capital Variable or S.A. de C.V. (the abbreviation in Spanish). In Mexico "S.A. de C.V." It is the equivalent to an "Inc." Company.

Most common and convenient type of corporations in Mexico
In an S.A. de C.V., there are legal mechanisms to protect the rights of capital investors. By law, shareholders are represented in the administration of the company by a shareholder auditor or an audit board that must be a disinterested party.
