About | Relocate and Move to Puerto Rico with Act 20 & Act 22

About: We are Entrepreneurs and Investors Who Relocated to Puerto Rico

We started PRelocate to provide individuals and small businesses the knowledge and services they need to relocate to Puerto Rico. When moving to Puerto Rico ourselves, we were buried in a process that was difficult to understand and required dozens of hours of research, not to mention the added costs of professional services to clear things up. We believe that living and working in Puerto Rico is a tremendous opportunity that shouldn’t be overlooked due to cost, disjointed information, and an overall lack of clarity.

Our goal is to enable and empower you to make a sound decision about whether Puerto Rico is right for you. If it is, we will make it happen for you in a straightforward, accurate, and economical way. We speak for the community in that we hope you join us here in beautiful Puerto Rico.

PRelocate made my move to Puerto Rico and ACT60 application a simple process that I am not sure I would have been able to figure out on my own. I am very grateful for the help they provided in helping me to get life started here in PR!

TLDR: If you're hiring PRelocate, you're entrusting amateurs who don't care with an important business transaction. You will regret it. They also collect a commission on you that goes well beyond the fees that you pay directly - they won't tell you this but if you read the fine print you will see it. There are better and cheaper options, including filing on your own and getting help from a CPA or lawyer for the parts you can't handle (cost: a few hundred dollars and it's done right!). There are many bad reviews on PRelocate in Reddit and other forums. Nearly all of the positive reviews here seem odd in their phrasingThe details -Missed appointments, no notice. Surly emails from staff - it's our systems. I get bounceback emails from their team that say they're out of office from July 1 to July 8, and it's December 18. They really don't seem to care or have gone out of business without telling people.Better off filing the application on your own or going with one of the other providers - any of the law firms will do - they may seem expensive but they're very cheap and reliable (e.g. <$1K cost) if you do the basics like write your name in the application and leave the parts that aren't easy to them.The little information that I did receive from PRelocate conflicted with what I heard from other sources. The positive reviews seem odd - very similar language. Buyer bewareAlso check the Reddit forums on PRelocate. They will show you over the last three years how bad the service that they provide is. One is titled 'Moving business to Puerto Rico", but there are many others

I am a seasoned operator of various real estate and service companies and write this anonymously. We recently used PRelocate and i would like to recommend them to any interested party. We came to this not knowing very much and the entire team did a thorough job explaining to us all the various aspects of the process. They are a real value and i am honored to give a recommendation to any that are seeking clear answers in layman's terms. We certainly could not have done this without their help, and they exceeded our expectations!thank you PRelocate team!! Feel free to respond to this review if you have any reasonable question or want more information on the basis of the referral. Great group!

PRelocate never filled my paperwork for over a year after I already paid. I also had to reach out to them to even find out that information. Then they would not give me a refund so I could file with another company. Also slow response times and very unprofessional. To your response - Out of the 5 emails that "you say" you sent me I emailed you first on 3 them lol so that's me reaching out to you, nice try & please give me the dates on these "multiple phone calls" bc that's a straight lie. & thank you for your careful consideration letting me know you cant turn in a incomplete form application but I had received an email saying you had all my information. So you forgot to ask for all the info initially then preceded to go 8 months praying I wouldn't reach back out so you could just pocket my money. I'm sorry you conduct business this way.

Thank you for all of your help and patience in correctly submitting and following the Act 60 guidelines. Our decree was officially approved and signed this week. The move to the island along with all the details with Act 60 is quite overwhelming. PRelocate provided a wealth of information and connections beyond paperwork processing to ensure everything was done correctly. We are greatly enjoying our life in Puerto Rico and the people here are amazing.

Working with PRelocate was a blessing. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the entire group was to work with. They assisted us with setting up personal investor as well as export services company for the ACT. The were also able to connect us with multiple CPA's, until we found the perfect fit. I have recommended PRelocate to several friends that made the move and highly recommend them to you as well. See you on the Beach...Cheers!

It's not easy to find excellent service with speedy and reliable follow- through. I have had the pleasure of working with Pilar, Gisela and Yetta ... all knowledgeable. I felt like I had a team working for me.. which is not the norm for 5 star quality service at a fraction of the cost.Thank you to this wonderful team for helping me with my journey towards business ownership!

I do not think I could have stomached the complexity of the Act 60 process without PRelocate. Pilar, Gisela and everyone on their team were very responsive and filed all of my paperwork for both my business and personal applications. PRelocate is a wealth of knowledge – they are well connected and made introductions that were very helpful. The time PRelocate saved me was huge. Trying to run my business while relocating my family to Puerto Rico took all of my time - I had none to spare to figure out all of the forms. Having PRelocate handle all of the paperwork was the only way for me to obtain my decree. I highly recommend PRelocate to those who are overly scheduled and do not have the time or patience to navigate through the process.

PRelocate has been very quick to respond and help with any question. The whole process for Act60, business and personal, went as smooth.

Pilar, Gisela, and Yetta and the PR staff have all been an absolute joy to work with and have dealt with both my personal filings and helping to set up my new PR business both professionally and in a very timely, and responsible manner. Their recommendations are excellent! Speaking with others who have chosen to go it their own and are still awaiting application approvals, PRelocate really does expedite not only the filing process, but also the approval process by many months if not a significant fraction of a year. I'm looking forward to doing more business with PRelocate in my future business ventures and with other business collaborations going forward. It's been well worth the investment for me!
