FORMS OF ENTITIES IN SAUDI ARABIA

THE MAIN FORMS OF LEGAL ENTITIES IN SAUDI ARABIA ARE:

The shareholding structure and required paid-up capital will change based on the company activity and legal form.

100% Foreign Ownership

Establishing a branch office in Saudi Arabia can be a strategic move for businesses seeking to expand their operations. The Ministry of Investment of Saudi Arabia (MISA) allows for 100% foreign ownership of branch offices without the need for a local sponsor.

While branch offices are not permitted to engage in trading activities, they can support the parent company’s business development in the service industry.

Alternatively, a representative office is a type of branch that is limited to marketing activities on behalf of the parent company, but cannot participate in business development. Both branch offices and representative offices offer opportunities for companies to expand their presence in Saudi Arabia and tap into the country’s growing economy.
