Incentives

A welcome mat of strong incentives

At the Mexican government, Baja California state and Mexicali community level, you can count on public entities that will embrace your Silicon Border business with incentives that have included:

  • Corporate tax rates as low as 3% through the Maquiladora program for foreign-owned companies
  • 30% R&D tax credits for 10 years
  • Almost 100% depreciation the first year, and limited-period property tax waivers
  • Government programs that provide on-demand customized courses and scholarship assistance, and reimburse employee time spent in classroom and on-the-job training, for 1-3 months

By manufacturing in Mexico, you will enjoy free trade status with 44 nations. And the U.S. and Mexico continue the mutually business-friendly relationship that began with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994. NAFTA continues to be strengthened, most recently when Presidents Obama and Calderon directed the creation of a High-Level Regulatory Cooperation Council, which will be comprised of senior level regulatory, trade, and foreign affairs officials from both countries.
