Re: My new Tour bus

Thanks so much for the kind words guys! As Chi Chi pointed out, our big difference is that we are stopping at the little small places, plcaes that are literally impossible for tourists to get to without their own car.

Using home address as Office

Hi there,

Am in the early stages of setting up a company here in Peru. As it will be very small initially, is there any reason/issues why I can NOT use my home address as my office address? Do I need to get permission from my landlord before I do this?

Any advice greatly appreciated
