Bolivia: A natural choice for South America

Gas, minerals and forests provide opportunities

Why Bolivia?

It’s great natural resources that make Bolivia attractive to investors. The country has large reserves of tin, silver, lithium and iron ore, plus the second-largest natural gas reserves in South America.

Natural reserves abound, with gold, copper, zinc, plumb, antimony, sulphur, borate, potassium and semi-precious stones on offer, as well as forests with fine and exotic woods. It’s no surprise, then, that Bolivia’s key sectors include mining, manufacturing and petroleum.

TMF Bolivia has more than a decade of experience assisting local and international clients. Its historic growth was bolstered by the acquisition of Ernst & Young’s outsourcing unit business portfolio in 2006, and by later acquisitions of portfolios from KPMG and Ruizmier. That expansion helped us to open a second office in 2007, setting up in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the engine of the Bolivian economy.

Throughout this time, TMF Bolivia has been the country’s leading provider of accounting, tax compliance, human resources, payroll and management of legal entities, servicing both local and global customers.
