Iran attracts investors despite the complicated political situation in the region. The country has a well-developed economy and is rich in natural resources, particularly, in oil and gas. If this location interests you from the point of doing business, it is possible to arrange a commercial presence here in one of these forms.

Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

Establishing a commercial presence for an investor is possible by using one of these most widespread business registration forms:

  • Limited Liability Company (LLC) – a body corporate that can be established by two or more persons whose financial liability is limited to the extent of contributions made only. From a legal point, this entity is deemed to be finally formed only after the entire amount of registered capital has been fully paid up.
  • Joint-stock Company (JSC) – this entity type can be formed by three persons at least who are liable within the value of shares owned. This entity is considered to be a trading company by default. Most of the advantages are open up to non-residents when registering a private JSC where shares are not offered to the public freely unlike a public JSC that can do such public offerings. The amount of chartered capital may vary: (i) for a private company it must not be less than IRR 1 million, (ii) for a public company it must not be less than IRR 5 million at the time of incorporation.

Registration Requirements and Steps

Establishing a company in Iran is possible if the founders contribute authorized share capital and immediately transfer 35% thereof to an account opened with the Iranian bank. The money transfer to the account must be confirmed by the bank. To register an organization in the official register you need to:

  1. Provide the registrar (in the Commercial Register) with a package of constituent documentation, including personal information about the beneficiaries, and encode it with bar codes. Such documentation shall include among others:
    • certificate, TIN;
    • the corporate charter and the decision of the owners to register the company in Iran;
    • orders on representatives and directorate appointment - plus copies of their travel passports;
    • certificate of the parent company's financial status.

The documentation is certified at the Iranian embassy and the translations - at the Ministry of Justice of the country. The representative draws up the power of attorney and signs copies, after that the company can be registered.

  1. Pay the fee for the company registration.
  2. Publish the notice in the official bulletin and, additionally, in a large-circulation Iranian newspaper after the application consideration and registration.
  3. Purchase accounting journals and registers (state seals are put on them).
  4. Enter employees into the social insurance system and transfer information about the size of their salaries to the labor department.

With the proper paperwork, registration procedures take up to a week if all legal formalities are observed.

Legal and Regulatory Framework

Registration of a company in Iran implies that the company becomes a subject of intra-national legal relations - the residence of the founders and the origin of the funds is insignificant. The following is among the mandatory conditions set by the authorities:

  • setting up an Iranian registered office and hiring of an agent;
  • an indication of the organizational form in the title;
  • the hiring of at least one director;
  • disclosure of information about the company to its agent;
  • reporting preparation (no audit is required).

Iran stimulates entrepreneurial activity, inclusive of external investors, and special economic zones (SEZ) and special territories have been created in the country for this purpose with a variety of tax incentives.

Tax System of Iran

Evaluating the following tax highlights may be also important for company formation in Iran:

  • Corporate income tax (CIT) rates – 25%
  • Personal income tax rate – a progressive scale of rates is applied (maximum 35%) depending on the amount of income
  • Value-added tax rate – 8%
  • Withholding tax (for non-residents) – (i) dividends – not applicable (N/A), (ii) interests – N/A, (iii) royalties – 2.5–7.5%
  • Capital gains tax (for non-residents) – N/A.

Advantages of the Jurisdiction

An option of company registration in Iran shall be considered along with the next benefits the jurisdiction offers:

  • Information about the business founders and the beneficiaries is not entered into the open registry.
  • There is no currency control in the country.
  • Availability of SEZ where importing goods without paying duty at customs is allowed.
  • Tax preferences in certain cases (for VAT and income tax).

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.

They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours.

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!
