Kazakhstan is a rapidly developing jurisdiction, including through foreign investment. The country has all the necessary conditions for this, which make it relatively easy for investors to enter the region. Certain bureaucratic formalities are required, but the wide range of benefits within the jurisdiction compensates for this.

Advantages of registering a company in Kazakhstan

  • advantageous location of the jurisdiction;
  • rapidly growing economy;
  • loyal and very favorable environment for foreign investors;
  • the average tax burden on business;
  • opportunity to register a legal entity quickly without cumbersome bureaucracy;
  • availability of qualified workers with a relatively low cost of their involvement in the production processes;

Forms of doing business and legal presence in Kazakhstan

The decision to buy a business in Kazakhstan or create a new one can be implemented in the following formats:

  • A Limited Liability Company is the most optimal idea for organizing a Kazakhstan business remotely registered. Both individuals and legal entities can act as participants. The liability of participants of this type of Kazakh legal entity is limited solely to the amount of individual contributions. Simplified accounting and reporting rules apply to this type of Kazakh legal entity. To form the charter capital, the calculation must be made concerning the monthly calculation index (MCI) amount. In 2022 the size of authorized capital for LLC should be at least 100 Monthly Calculation Index (MCI), and the measure of 1 MCI – 3180 tenge. Nevertheless, there are restrictions for this Kazakh legal entity to carry out certain activities, which only large enterprises can engage in, such as insurance, production, and trade of excisable goods.
  • A joint-stock company is a type of legal entity, which implies compliance with stricter accounting and reporting rules, but provides an opportunity to raise significant capital. The financial obligations of shareholders are also limited to the value of their shares, which can be freely alienated from third parties. The amount of the share capital must be determined, taking into account the minimum threshold of 50,000 MCI.
  • A branch is a business option available to foreign entrepreneurs, which implies that they conduct the same types of commercial activities as in the state of initial registration. Simplified accounting and reporting rules apply to a branch.
  • A representative office is a variant of the non-commercial presence of a foreign legal entity, under which it is forbidden to conduct commercial activities but is allowed to monitor and analyze local markets.

Procedure for registering a legal entity

Registration of a company in Kazakhstan is carried out by passing several registration steps:

  1. Determination of commercial priorities and preparation of a business plan for the future Kazakh legal entity.
