If a foreign business wishes to set up a branch in Qatar, it can maintain 100% foreign ownership of the company.

However, a branch office can only perform activities that are specified in the contract which it is registered for. Also, the branch Office would require a government or quasi government contract to set up.

One key advantage of operating as a branch office is that there are no share capital requirements.

Another main consideration to keep in mind when operating as a branch office is that branch offices are fully taxable unless given a special exemption.

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

When setting up any type of establishment companies in Qatar, the process may be critical and risky. BBMS offers supports and extensive assistance in all company formation processes.
