Costa Rica: Types of Company

Public Limited Liability Company

A Public Limited Liability Company is a stock corporation whose shares can (unlike private companies) be openly and freely traded on the stock exchange. Law 7201 of 1990 was passed to allow for the creation of these corporate entities.

The minimum share capital of a Public Limited Liability Company is (at the time of writing) 50 million colons and it must have at least 10 shareholders. A Public Limited Liability Company remains under the permanent supervision of the Central Bank.
