Egypt Company FormationEgyptian (LLC) Company Formation

The most common form of company in Egypt is the Limited Liability Company. Alike a Limited Company in the UK or a GmbH in Austria and Germany, an Egyptian LLC company is a legal entity that is separate and distinct from the individuals who run it. For sole traders and for people in partnerships, the individuals’ personal assets are at risk if there is a claim against the organisation but shareholders in an LLC are liable to lose only the value of the share capital to which they subscribe.

LLCs in Egypt can be 100% foreign owned and are relatively quick to incorporate.
