I obtained temporal residency back in 2012 and went straight for permanent residency after the first year on that bases. Should I be registering a Chilean company and pay myself a wage through that instead of the foreign business in order to qualify for nationality in a few months?
That really has no relevancy to applying for citizenship. Will not hurt you nor help you. You do need to have your tax situation in Chile straightened out to apply for citizenship.

Finally got my permanencia definitiva after full 10 months of waiting. It was actually ready in March but it took 2 more months for documents to reach Los Ríos.
