The professionalism and competence of qualified experts in the service of anyone who wants to move, to find a job and to invest in Paraguay. From young people to pensioners, from the small businessman to the great entrepreneur: LIP is the company specialized in legal, administrative and financial advice, which can offer you all the assistance you need for your move to this wonderful south American country. As a matter of fact, LIP’s mission is to help families, young couples and pensioners to build “a safe plan B” for themselves and for their own families, obtaining a permanent residence in Paraguay and in this way enjoying the many benefits, which this small but amazing State offers you.
General Director of the Company is the Italian Andrea Carlo Bernasconi, who is a manager with more than 20 years of experience in permanent residences in Paraguay and Latin America.
Andrea worked as director in many multinational companies in Middle East, Europe and Latin America. He has been all over the world and he knows very well the various realities, which characterizes it. Good and bad realities. And then, when he for the first time set foot in Paraguay, it was love at first sight. “Paraguay really surprised me” he tells us “This country is not famous and it is little known by world, but it is exceptionally balanced. I was particularly impressed by its quality of life, by a pleasant and relaxed society, which is much safer than the ones in the neighbouring countries.
Paraguay’s economy is fast growing and stable and it really offers many benefits to foreign people who decide to move here.”
So – after he himself moved to the capital Asunción, from Milan – he decided to make available all his knowledge and his many years of experience to all those who want to receive it and he founded LIP, the sole European company specialized in legal advice for moves and investments in Paraguay. His success was immediate, thanks to the experience and professionalism of his team, composed of legal and administrative consultants, who reside in Italy, Spain and Paraguay and who all are of European origin: Italians, Spanish, Germans and French. All together they constitute the engine of LIP, which is now a well-established reality on the ground and which helps a great many of foreign people to move to this jewel-country of Latin America, which is still too little known, to relocate their business or to open a new one.
A 360°Assistance, which begins even before your real move and which includes: a first phone or skype consultancy, a safe accompanying service, a completion of all paperworks to obtain your residence, a search for a new home and – not a marginal aspect – all human assistance you need, which is decisive and provides relief to all those who are thinking to a radical change of life. As a matter of fact, moving to another country is never easy: a new language, new habits, a search for a new home, great many documents to submit (and in Paraguay you really have many documents to fill out and get approved). That’s why this situation could discourage even the most convinced people. LIP’s team knows it very well and this is why it offers you only the best consultants, who are ready to accompany and support you from Italy to Paraguay.
LIP is present throughout the territory with a wide network of collaborators and Senior Consultants and it is addressed to all those who want to move abroad and enjoy their own tax-free pensions or incomes, improving their standard of living or investing in promising starts up. So far the main clients have especially been British, Germans, Russians, Switzers, Norwegians, Turks, Icelanders ,Ukrainians, Australians. And even more: New Zealanders, Canadians, Americans. Everyone chose Paraguay as his/her home and every one of them chose Paraguay through the great work of the company led by Andrea Carlo.
Honesty, confidentiality and an excellent service have always been the values which characterize Living In Paraguay. This company, with its careful and specific assistance, help many people to save their earnings and their assets in the best way, without having to suffer from very high taxations, but quite the opposite. “If you move to Paraguay and you effectively live there, the taxes you have to pay are at a minimum or even reduced to zero” director Bernasconi keeps explaining to us. “We help our clients and their families and especially new pensioners to find a safe place, where they can live and we offer them the opportunity to make interesting investments in Paraguay. Paraguay is a new and very safe country, which has an amazing economy and where you can make so many investments.
A very cosmopolitan country for all immigration procedures. The best solution certainly is to live in Paraguay at least 6 months a year and to apply for permanent residence here. In this way, you can benefit from a considerable and entirely legal tax reduction.
We help Italians who want to move. There are many people: couples, young people, pensioners of an upper-middle target.
The process is really very easy: you only need to book a phone consultancy, which really has a derisory cost, about 50 dollars and, if you are still interested, you may continue the conversation with a contract. “We propose solutions from 8000 to 9000 US dollars per person and they include all services. It may appear to be an high cost – Andrea points out – but it is not, if we think about other companies, which propose slashing prices and then they hide other occult costs. On the contrary, we offer our clients an “all inclusive package” and it includes everything from the planning of your first journey to the withdrawal of your Paraguayan ID Card. The “all inclusive” service also includes your accompanying from Italy by one of our Senior Consultant.
One of LIP’s flagships is exactly our “Safe Accompanying Service” by which you do not lose your time and you will submit your Permanent Residence Request to Paraguayan Immigration Authorities. In this way, you also have the opportunity to take some days off to visit this extraordinary country. Moreover, Italian citizens who reside abroad can receive their pensions from Italy and obtain very important tax benefits.
“Clients – Andrea goes on – must only have three legalized documents: Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate or Civil Status Certificate and Criminal Record. We prepare all other documents on the ground with clients and our companion consultant from Italy. This companion is an experienced person, who accompanies clients in every public office for a few days. We will provide our clients a rent agreement and all the documentation to allow our customers to submit their residence request already in the first journey. Once the residence request has been automatically accepted after six months and after you have done a second journey to Paraguay to make a request, you will have your Paraguayan ID Card, which is worth ten years and which allows you to travel to all South American Countries without passport and to live and to invest, not only in Paraguay, but also in all other States: Brazil, Argentine, Uruguay.
Not only accompanying and move. Among Living in Paraguay’s services, there is also and especially a proposal of real estate and financial investment solutions for pensioners, private individuals and companies. And more: consultancies to open bank accounts, an help for Paraguayan permanent residents to obtain their driving licence, subscriptions for health policies and openings of commercial companies. Everything run with absolute confidentiality and discretion.
So, if you also are enticed by the thought to move to Paraguay, you need only to contact Living in Paraguay and leave your country, being sure that you will never be alone, and there will always be someone by your side, willing to help and support you.
