Company Formation Company formation is the process of registering a business as a limited company at Companies House. As a result, the business becomes a distinct legal entity. The process is also referred to as ‘company incorporation’ and ‘company registration’. When you incorporate a limited company, it becomes an individual ‘person’ in the eyes of the law. Incorporated businesses are completely separate from their owners in terms of finances, liabilities, contractual agreements, and ownership of property and assets. Such a view is not afforded to unincorporated businesses like sole traders as distinct legal entities. Just like the other GCC countries, the process of setting up a business in Oman requires the involvement of a few steps. We play an important role to get the important documents for registering with the concerned ministries, government departments and associations to let the corporate clients start their business operations in Oman saving their time, efforts and money.
