Annual Corporate Compliance

In accordance with Mexican law, there are several corporate obligations that all Mexican entities must comply with.

Hereunder please find a summary of the main ones:

I.    Annual meeting of shareholders or partners.

In accordance with the Mexican General Law of Commercial Entities, shareholders or partners of a commercial entity are required to meet at least once a year, within the first four months of the year, in order to hold a meeting to approve the financial statements of the entity. The deadline to hold the above-mentioned meeting was April 30th, 2020.
