Limited Liability Company
The most common type of corporate entity in Kuwait is the limited liability company (“WLL”). The 51% of the capital in a WLL must be owned by a Kuwaiti national (corporate entity or individual). A WLL requires at least two shareholders and can operate in all sectors except for the banking and insurance sectors. A WLL is prohibited from investing funds on behalf of third parties. The minimum share capital for a WLL is Kuwaiti Dinars 1,000. This may vary, depending on the stated activities of the company.
