Concerns

La zona franca son áreas geográficas delimitadas dentro del territorio nacional donde se llevan a cabo actividades industriales, comerciales y de servicios bajo una normatividad especial en materia tributaria, aduanera y de comercio exterior. Estas zonas gozan de algunos beneficios tributarios, ​ como la exención del pago de derechos de importación de mercancías, así como exoneraciones de algunos impuestos o una regulación diferente de estos.

How many Free Trade Zones are there in Colombia? To date, there are eleven Free Trade Z ones in operation in the following municipalities: Barranquilla (1), Bogotá (1), Cali (1), Cartagena (2), Cúcuta (1), La Tebaida (1), Palmira (1), Santa Marta (1), Sopó (1) and Rionegro (1).

Free zones are specific areas in Colombia that are clearly defined within the national territory.

Various industrial activities are carried out in these areas, such as the production of goods and services, as well as commercial activities.

These activities are carried out under a set of special regulations related to taxes, customs and foreign trade.

In addition, it enjoys some tax benefits, such as exemption from the payment of import duties on goods. Likewise, exemptions from some taxes or a different regulation of these.

Companies operating within the Free Trade Zones can import, produce and then re-export their goods without paying the same customs duties or dealing with the same customs restrictions they would face if they were based elsewhere in the country.

There are eight Permanent Free Trade Zones and fourteen Special Permanent Free Trade Zones available in Colombia.

In Colombia's free trade zones, no customs taxes, such as VAT and tariffs, are generated or required to be paid on imported goods. There is the possibility of exporting both to third countries and to the domestic market from the western business park. In addition, goods of foreign origin that enter the Free Trade Zone may remain there indefinitely. The free zone regime promoted by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism seeks to create yards, offices and premises that promote economic activity and employment generation. The permanent free trade zones have become spaces of high value for commerce and industry, thanks to their concepts of security and transparency that attract highly productive industrialists.

The free trade zone is the geographic area of the national territory where highly industrial or commercial processes of goods and services are developed in accordance with special tax and customs regulations. These areas promote the creation of highly productive and competitive environments for the companies that operate in them.

The advantages of a Free Trade Zone:

- Exemption of LAK raw materials, goods and finished products sold from the national customs territory to industrial users of the free trade zone. 

-VAT exemption for goods sold in foreign markets.

- Possibility of partial processing outside the free zone.

- Possibility of paying 100% for goods or services produced in the free trade zone in the country's territory with the corresponding tariff and payment of VAT for 16 costs only from third countries.

Disadvantages in a Free Trade Zone

The disadvantages of free trade zones are the complexity they can cause, identity modeling, the possibility of rodents entering and leaving, catching diseases from other countries, committing all kinds of crimes. Avoiding compliance with sanitary, phytosanitary and environmental requirements of free trade zones.

Tax cuts may not be as good as agreed, or there may be tariffs or positive taxes on imports from foreign countries. They do not allow warehousing of goods, equipment or others under any circumstances. This can be a big disadvantage because capacity is insufficient or poorly protected, because there is no real innovation in the process or there are delays during the delay. In domestic or international business, not as expected due to lack of production support services or neglect of operational advantages.

The Western Business Park is a way for countries to attract foreign investment to their borders. In this way they get a certain form of investment on the international financial maps, which is more visible and attracts money from investors and workers from other countries in the world.

To be in the western business park, the new legal entity must be incorporated with a registered office in the country and legal representation of a trustee or branch of a foreign company allowed by the Commercial Law.

Commercial Free Trade Zone: A warehouse where goods are offered for sale, use or consumption.

In the western business park: The goal is to create industries that process raw materials that will be exported to the rest of the world.
