The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) is a special economic zone located in Doha. QFC company formation is available to both international and domestic businesses looking to operate in Qatar.

QFC-registered companies can benefit from 100% foreign ownership, 100% repatriation of profits and more. Companies that operate within the QFC are subject to a simplified tax regime, which includes a flat rate of 10% on profits and no personal income tax. The center also offers 100% foreign ownership of companies, allowing investors to retain full control of their operations.

The QFC utilises the English Common Law system.

The QFC is regulated by four independent authorities, including the Qatar Financial Centre Authority, the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority, the Civil and Commercial Court and the Regulatory Tribunal.

Part of the Qatar Vision 2030 is to provide more transparency across business operations. The QFC public register is available for the public to search in order to find business details and permitted activities.

Business sectors permitted within the QFC include financial services, professional services, not-for-profit organisations and family offices.
