I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.Corporations banking in Mexico, because of the significant issues with drug money laundering are required to have a comisario who is an independent auditor of sorts, he can be a shareholder of the company or independent, but he cannot be an employee. It cannot be an actual owner of the company though or an employee.

Is it possible to appoint my accountant here in Mexico to this position?
What about my attorney?
Technically they are not employees of the company.
I appreciate your help in this matter.
Thank you. That makes a lot of sense.
I also have an employee (personal assistant) who is not paid by the company in question. Would it be appropriate for someone like her to fulfill this role.
She is the most trustworthy person I have met here.
