Doing business in the Middle East


The Middle East is a developing and dynamic hub for investment. A growing population and middle class, together with substantial efforts to encourage activity outside of oil and gas industries provides business opportunities across the region. As PwC’s 2017 Paying Taxes study highlights, the Middle East has the least demanding tax framework globally and is the easiest place in which to pay taxes. These factors combined make the region attractive for foreign businesses.

We have developed a series of country specific 'Doing business guides' which are designed to provide an introduction to the tax and legal aspects in the Middle East and answer key questions that an inbound investor may have whilst establishing or developing a business within the region.
