This is a term I use every day when I get mad at my neighbors for not moving their children into my garden. I’m sure we’ve all been there, but this is one of those times. When you take the time to consider your neighbors’ needs and concerns, there’s a lot to consider. You can’t be too good at moving, and the decision to move out of your home is a great first step. If you’re going to be moving, however, you need to consider what your neighbors will be moving with. Whether they’re moving for love or because they’re moving to a different location, they need to be aware of the local rules of business etiquette.
Cubans are a mix of both rich and poor. They love to move and the vast majority of the country is divided into 3 levels of social status. At the top are the high-class people who can afford to move to another city. These people are referred to as “grandes”. Low-class people from the middle class move in to the country, and these people are called “comidas”.
The first rule of business etiquette is that the people you meet, and the people you do business with, have to be aware of your local laws and customs. This is because most businesses in every country are family owned, and the family members are often the first to realize that something is not right. If the people doing business with you are not aware of this, then they are not going to treat you with courtesy and respect, which is very important.
Cubans have very strict business etiquette, and they stick to it wherever they are. In Cuba we do things a little differently. We have a business association called Cenco who are organized into an umbrella organization called Comision de Cenco (CC). CC is basically a kind of social club where everyone can join, but most business are conducted in person and not online or through email. CC members are expected to visit their local CC office to sign up and put their business in a file.
CC members are members of the company they are representing, and the Cenco office is where they put their business. Businesses which are incorporated in Cuba are allowed to form a CC and have it recognized as the business of the company. The CC office will also check to make sure that all the companies are represented by the same name.
This may seem like a silly question, but what exactly is a CC? The CC is a business that can be recognized by the Cuban government and is able to receive all of the profits from any company in Cuba. In the past, when a company was incorporated in Cuba, it would be required to register its name in order to receive profits. This was very confusing, as the “name” of the company would not be the same as the company itself. The funny thing is that all the companies we have found in Cuba are actually named “Cuba” or “Cuba Business Chamber”, in that they have their own “información” on their websites, but they don’t have the same CC as companies in the US. However, if they did, they would be required to register their name, too.
Cubans are not allowed to have corporations in their name, so it would be required to register in the US. Even if the company is registered in Cuba, it would not be the same as the company itself, which is the business name. This was confusing because, if we were to register in the US, the name Cuba Business Chamber would be the same as the company, and the Cuban company would be the same as the Cuban business name. If we were to register ourselves in the US as a business, we would have to be a corporation. As a business, we would not be allowed to own property, own companies, or open bank accounts.
