Company Formation

Setting up a business in a new country has both its risks and rewards. Making it work means minimising those risks, and maximising those rewards. If you are looking to form a company in Qatar, there are certainly plenty of rewards to be had. But, you will need the assistance of a professional if you want to minimise your risks, and pave a path towards success.

When forming a company overseas, working out all that needs to be done, can be both arduous and complex. The key to getting it right – the key to making the process that much easier – is to find the right company to assist you.

This is where Fusion Middle East (formerly, PRO-Partnership) comes in. With more than 50 years of combined experience, Fusion Middle East provides the know-how and support essential to company formation in Qatar, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Types of Company Formation

Limited Liability Company

The most common method available to foreign investors setting up in Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, is to operate under a limited liability company. This entity is primarily used by investors that are looking to operate in the Middle East over the long term who would like to sell their products or services to both private and government entities.

Find out more about the benefits of setting up a Limited Liability Company.

Branch Office

If you are a foreign company executing a specific contract in Qatar or the UAE, establishing a branch office may be the best option for you. In this case, there is no need for a local partner. The contract, however, must facilitate the performance of a public service or utility.

Trade Representative Office

If you are a manufacturing company looking for exposure in the Qatari or Emirati markets, you have the option to set up a trade representative office. This type of representation is useful in introducing your products to Qatari companies as a non-trading ‘shop-window’.

Although your trade representative office cannot export, import or sell in the State of Qatar, personnel from your trade representative office can contact a client or exporter to acquaint them with their foreign establishment.

Find out more about the rules and regulations around Trade Representative Offices.

Engineering Company Registration

Setting up an engineering office within the State of Qatar, or the United Arab Emirates, involves numerous intricate processes, however, working closely with our sister company Premier Solutions, Fusion Middle East is able to support and guide you through these requirements.

Premier Solutions specialises in overcoming bureaucratic obstacles, working specifically with engineering companies to help them establish and run their businesses successfully in Qatar.

For engineering firms, there are three types of offices that can be set up in Qatar:

  • Local Engineering
  • International Engineering Consultancy
  • Engineering Branch Offices
