How to register a company in Pakistan?

The Step by Step Procedure of Private Limited Liability Company Registration in Pakistan

The procedure of registering a public limited company is same as above. However, they may require you to submit more documents.

Step 1: Approval of Company Name

This is the first step of company registration in Pakistan is choosing the company’s name. It is important to devise a unique company name that would set you apart from the rest in the industry.

You must follow the restrictions and guidelines. For example, make sure that your company’s name does not include any prohibited words.

Step 2: Submission of Documents

Once the company name gets the approval, you need to submit the incorporation documents to the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).

Step 3: Certificate of Incorporation

After submitting the documents, the SECP evaluates them. They check their validity. A digital signature is granted by the National Institutional Facilitation Technologies (NIFT) and can be acquired through the SECP.

Also, they issue the certificate of incorporation. Presentation of the company may be needed. However, this depends on where the business started.

Step 4: Deposit of Shares

After the registration, shareholders must deposit their corresponding amount of shares to the company’s bank account.

Step 5: Registration of Income, Sales, and Professional Taxes

In conclusion, the last step of company registration in Pakistan is the registration with the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and issuance of a national tax number (NTN). A sales tax registration number may be registered if applicable.

Alternatives to company registration in Pakistan

  • Branch Office

A branch office is a suitable alternative to company registration if your company wants to have a presence in Pakistan without setting up a separate legal entity.

Branches carrying out a contract in Pakistan can be established. However, a branch office cannot take part in any commercial or trading activities of whatever nature. Therefore, your activities depend on the contract you signed. The contract restricts your activities.

The parent company owns 100% of the branch office in the country of origin. Since it is not a limited liability company, it does not require any minimum capital either.
