Unlike other countries in the region, artworks transit management is simple and well organized. All temporary importations (90 days) of artworks are exempt from customs taxation. When an artwork is sold within the country, customs duty are needed but are related to the constitutive value of the piece. Also, the artworks sold within the Republica Oriental del Uruguay, are exempt from paying VAT or other taxes.
Uruguay’s economic stability, friendly taxation and efficient infrastructure are among the advantageous conditions of the location and some of the reasons that the region is attracting international VIPs. Punta del Este is the main resort of South America and internationally known for having the right mix of relax, fun and glamour.
Although Punta del Este preserves the appearance of a small town, it also offers facilities and services usually found in larger cities such as: the International Airport of Punta del Este, hotels and rental housing, design stores, haute cuisine restaurants. ESTE ARTE has formed partnerships with firms providing additional services as Art Handlers team, Photographer Service, Framing Studio, and Freelance Technicians or Assistants.
