This information has been sourced from government bodies as well as local experts. The information is regularly reviewed and updated to keep up with changing rules. It must be noted that the information is a guide and not advice, and for specific queries you can speak to our experts within the platform.

Do I have to manage everything myself?
Centuro Connect is capable of self-service, allowing users to access all experts in any country and interact with them directly. However, if you would rather have a single point of contact and support for your expansion journey, the Centuro team can project manage your requirements and take the administrative burden off your hands.
Which countries do you offer?
We are able to provide reliable information and access to professional services in more than 170 countries.
How long does it take to set up in a new country?
The timeline to get up and running in a new market varies both by the country you are choosing and what your goals are.
For example, if you are looking to register an entity and create a VAT number in Europe, it could be as quick as two to four weeks. Alternatively, if you are looking to send a director to the US to start your state-side operations, you could realistically be looking at anything up to 12 months before they can begin trading.
We recommend you look at the specific requirements for the geographic areas you are interested in, and then speak to one of your Centuro Connect experts to help you create an accurate and realistic timeline.

Can I get advice for my specific situation?
Yes. We know that every expansion journey is different. The Centuro Connect platform shares general processes and requirements for you to educate yourself on country specific compliance, but if you have any other questions, you can always go straight to a local expert, who will provide you with fast and comprehensive advice on your own situation. This is all included in your membership.
How long does it take to get a response?
Centuro Connect’s platform is available 24/7. If you’re messaging on-the-ground professionals in your target destination, the current average response time is under eight hours. However, we’d suggest allowing up to 48 hours to account for time-zone differences and complexity of your queries.
If you need to speak with the Centuro Connect team about a technical issue, with a bespoke request or for anything else, we aim to respond within 24 hours. Just pop open the live chat and let us know how we can assist.
