Egypt is a country situated in North Africa that has a strategic location. It offers numerous opportunities for entering many local and world markets. The country has developed transportation, telecommunications, retail, and tourism sectors. If you wish to start doing business in this jurisdiction, this endeavor is possible to realize using one of the following registration options.

Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you wish to form a company in Egypt or establish your business presence in any other manner, this list of basic registration options may help you with making the final choice:

  • Limited Liability Company – the simplest opportunity for starting and doing business in Egypt, a small one preferably. This option requires two shareholders at least (but up to fifty) and one manager who is an Egyptian resident. The shareholders of this enterprise don’t risk losing in excess of the funds contributed in case of potential losses. It is recommended to form a chartered capital in the amount of USD 1,000 at least.
  • Joint-stock Company – an option suitable for large business in Egypt where three shareholders are required at least. Their liability is also limited to the amounts of funds contributed. This corporate option is used for involving external financing. It can have a form of (i) a closed joint-stock company where certain restrictions to the shares transfers are applied (such should be indicated in the company's statutory documents), or (ii) an open joint-stock company – where shares can be offered freely for subscription to third parties and transferred later without restrictions.
  • Branch – an option suitable for a foreign entity that intends to carry out industrial and commercial activities with local contractors. The list of activities is limited to those a foreign entity is allowed to do abroad and those related to legal relations with a local contractor. Registration is required in this case.
  • Representative Office – if a foreign body corporate intends to carry out promotional activities or market investigation, this option is suitable for those. Direct commercial transactions are not allowed in this case. The registration is also necessary for a representative office.

Registration Requirements and Steps

The process of company registration in Egypt covers the following preliminary steps:

  1. Clarifying your business objectives that should be realized through the local enterprise.
  2. Choosing the most suitable legal and organizational form for doing business in Egypt.
  3. Selecting and checking a business name for a future company.
  4. Collecting data about the future founders, beneficiaries, and officials of the Egyptian enterprise.
  5. Arranging the registered office for an Egyptian company.
  6. Drafting statutory and registration documents.
  7. Paying up the initial amount of authorized capital.
  8. Lodging the ready set of registration documents to the registrar.
  9. Registration for tax and social security purposes.
  10. Arranging a corporate bank account for a newly registered enterprise.
  11. Applying for and getting licenses and special permits necessary for regulated activities.

Our lawyers may guide you more precisely on certain business objectives you may realize through a local enterprise without obstacles.

The General Authority for Investment and Free Zones and the Egyptian Financial Supervisory Authority are major state authorities foreign investors may deal with while establishing their presence in this jurisdiction.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
