BENEFITS OF COMPANY REGISTRATION IN PAKISTAN
A company registered in Pakistan is referred to as a limited liability company. This means that the
affairs of the directors or subscribers are separate from the affairs of the company. Directors or
owners of the company cannot be held liable for the affairs of the company or its liability. A
registered company in Pakistan is an artificial person, a corporate body with a separate legal entity
and perpetual succession with unlimited life. A registered company is not dissolved upon death of its
subscribers, stakeholders or employees.
The ownership of a company can be transferred to any third person or party with the approval of the
Board in its annual general meeting and the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).
The company is the most organized structure considered amongst all the entities established in
Pakistan. The Government of Pakistan, in pursuit of developing and promoting a documented
economy, has introduced several tax benefits, concessions, and rebates for start-up businesses.
Most of these benefits are merely available only when the business is registered as a company in
Pakistan. Even tax rates for companies are far lower than other businesses, and almost all business
expenses are deductible subject to procedural compliances provided by law if any.
Did you know that the SECP (Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan) is the regulator of
companies in Pakistan? If a management dispute arises between directors or shareholders, parties
can opt for a summary procedure for resolution of their dispute by filing a representation with the
SECP. This will be adjudicated under the Companies Act 2017.
