Default Re: Moving to Aruba?

Yes - you need a good lawyer and accountant. I don't really know
the ins and outs of opening a business there but it's much
different than in the US. Do not assume 'it's just like in the US'.

Also labor laws are different and you have to know how it
works paying your help and creating work contracts for them.
If they don't have residency, you might have to consider
arranging work permits which is an entirely other issue.

Just like with the start up of any kind of business -
you have to do your homework, make sure you
have the funds in the bank as a cushion and
ask questions from everyone.

Good thing to do is to contact other businesses doing
what you are doing and network with them.
