Setting up a business can be an overwhelming process. Even though the Qatari government has implemented laws to ease the operations for foreign investors to start their companies in Qatar they must adhere to a number of procedural norms and regulations in Qatar.

Types of companies to choose from

In Qatar, there are numerous ways to conduct business. Whether you choose to set up a Limited Liability Company (LLC), a Branch Office or a Representative Office, QShield provides assistance to all types of corporations.

There are two options to consider when deciding to operate in Qatar; mainland and free zones. For the mainland approach, you’ll need to have a local Qatari partner who will own 51 percent of the company’s shares. In free zones you can own 100% of the company’s shares, provided that the business is set up in the free zone.
