Our Firm was established in Uruguay in 1951 as a subsidiary of Société Fiduciaire Suisse (SFS), the oldest fiduciary company in Switzerland (established in 1906). During it’s more than 65 years of existence, the Firm witnessed several changes, but remained domiciled in Montevideo’s Old City. Since March 2009, CSU is an independent Firm, although with strong ties with its history.
A second office in Zonamerica (Free Zone of Montevideo) was added in the year 2000, where we render services to free zone users and foreign customers. And since March 2009 we also have offices in Geneva, Switzerland, through Fidulem International, a subsidiary held together with former SFS members.
Strict confidentiality and high professionalism are our hallmarks, and have allowed us to be a reference firm both locally and internationally.
Our Firm provides its clients a tailored service, ensuring direct and immediate contact with the partners and professionals responsible for the clients’ businesses.
Technical quality, confidentiality and efficiency are our main priorities in the provision of our services.
