Company Incorporation & Firm Registration Procedure in Pakistan

Registration of a Company with the SECP & FBR

There is a distinct difference between the firm registration and the company registration procedure in Pakistan.


A company can be registered within a day or two, but a firm…?

The procedure for registering a company in Karachi differs from that for registering a firm. Registering a company is not difficult, but it is smooth. Although the Government of Sindh is striving to ease business operations in the province, the process of forming a company takes just one day while forming a partnership takes 3-5 days. 

In Karachi, Islamabad/Rawalpindi, and Lahore, our experienced corporate lawyers offer company registration services. You should avoid from so-called consultants, who are not practicing lawyers. We specialize in firm formation and company incorporation. Our offices in Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, the USA, Canada, and the UK are providing the best services for setting up new businesses in Pakistan with enthusiasm for this national cause.

Firm Registration or Company Incorporation?

Please do not register a partnership firm with the Registrar of Firms’ office (ICT Administration) in Islamabad…

It is more difficult, bothersome, and time-consuming to establish an arms factory in our beautiful capital than to register a partnership! The Honorable Assistant Registrar/Registrar must photograph all partners and witnesses at the time of signing the partnership deed. If you have a lot of free time, you can try to get your partnership firm registered from Islamabad. Just issuing a Firm Registration Certificate would take 10 days. 

It is much better to get your private company registered in Islamabad. No partnership deed, photograph, or even your signatures are not required on any paper, nor do you have to know where the company registration office of SECP is located. It only takes a day or two to receive your Incorporation Certificate for a country-based Private Limited Company (Not just a low-level company, restricted to Islamabad).

Are you still interested in registering a Partnership Firm with the Honorable Registrar/Assistant Registrar of the Firms (Islamabad)?

Alternatively, if you still wish to register a partnership through the Registrar of Firms, Islamabad, we can draft and finalize the partnership firm and guide you through the registration process.

We would charge a fee of Rs 25,000 for registering your partnership firm with the Registrar of the firm’s office at ICT Administration, in Islamabad.
