setting up a trade representative office

If you are a manufacturing company looking for exposure in the Qatari market, you may want 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.”

Bear in mind, however, 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, but they are not permitted to contact the end customer directly or to promote products that are not manufactured by your company.

Main Advantages of Operating as a Trade Representative Office:

  • Can maintain 100% foreign ownership
  • There are no share capital requirements for a Trade Representative Office

Considerations of a Trade Representative Office :

  • Trade Representative Office cannot export, import or sell in the State of Qatar
  • Requires Ministerial Approval based on the manufacturing license of the mother country
