branch office

When conducting business in the Middle East, it is not always mandatory that you seek a local partner. Certain company establishment types allow for the foreign business to maintain 100% ownership.

If you are a foreign company executing a specific contract in Qatar, you can choose to establish a Branch Office. The contract, however, must “facilitate the performance of a public service or utility”. This means that your contract must be issued by a government or quasi-government entity.

Main Advantages of Operating as a Branch Office:

  • Maintain 100% Foreign Ownership
  • There are no share capital requirements

Key Considerations of a Branch Office:

  • Entitled to perform only the specific contract for which it is registered and cannot tender for any further public or private contracts through the entity.
  • Branch Offices are fully taxable unless granted a special exemption

Although there is no need for a Qatari partner in a Branch Office set up, Fusion Middle East can help you through the company establishment process.

We understand that finding a transparent and trustworthy partner is the most critical step for your business, no matter what type of business you run.
