Set Your Sights On New Market Entry in Qatar.

Qatar is one of the wealthiest countries in the Middle East, making company formation in Qatar an attractive prospect to business owners. Before choosing to start a business, you must understand the processes and various intricacies.

Qatar has a growing economy and lower tax rates for some businesses. Your business setup in Qatar could be an LLC, Shareholding company, LLP and more. Those wanting to set up within the mainland of Qatar will need 51% of the shares to be held by a Qatari national.

Our corporate specialists can create the necessary contractual agreements to achieve this outcome.

Some business owners choose to operate within a Qatar free zone. Qatar has three main free zones: the QFC, QSTP and QFZ. Free zones allow foreign investors the opportunity to establish an entity with 100% legal ownership.
