If you wish to sponsor an individual in the Dominican Republic and you are not an authorized Dominican Republic Independent Business Owner, by working with your line of sponsorship you will be able to obtain assistance of a servicing Direct Independent Business Owner. That Direct Independent Business Owner will provide the necessary local registration pack to your prospect.

For further information on servicing arrangements contact Customer Service at Phone: 809-372-5587

Business Type
Currently, there are no other classifications of Independent Business Owner apart from the traditional Independent Business Owner.

Establish a Second Business

International Sponsoring
International sponsoring is always an option and an excellent means of expanding your business while avoiding many of the costs and complexities associated with establishing a second business. Please note: For those markets where foreigners are able to establish a second business, they must be the international sponsor of their second business in another country.

Legal and Tax Guide
For operating the business a business license called a Patent is required. For tax identification a Cedula number is required. A Cedula number is a personal tax identification number. For a corporation a RNC (Registro Nacional de Contribuyente) is used as a tax Identification number. Registration for ITBIS (Sales tax/Value added tax) is required if monthly retail sales exceeds certain thresholds. Independent Business Owners are required to keep balanced books.

Any authorized Amway Independent Business Owner who has registered with a Dominican Republic address can purchase products. Commissions will be escrowed without a tax number on file.

For additional information contact Business Information Services at Amway North America.
