The most frequently used form of business entity in Myanmar is the private limited company, either as a standalone business or as a subsidiary of a foreign company.
Foreign companies can also set-up in Myanmar as a branch office or a representative office.
It is essential to have a full understanding of your options before deciding how to proceed. Making the wrong choice could severely restrict the expansion of your business in Myanmar.
To be incorporated in Myanmar, a new company must obtain a certificate of incorporation from the Companies Registry.

Under the 2017 Myanmar Companies Law, a Foreign company in Myanmar is required to appoint at least one resident director who is a natural Myanmar person.
There is no requirement for board meetings to be held in Myanmar and directors may be resident anywhere in the world.
There is also no requirement for shareholders to be Myanmar resident director.
Board meetings can be conducted via digital media. A sole 100% foreign shareholder can be a director of the company.
Biz Law Consult provides directors for many of the companies that we incorporate in order to ensure that their affairs can be properly managed and controlled from their place of incorporation.
This service is often combined with our other company management and/or our domiciliation services.
If you do not have a resident director to meet the requirement of the Companies Law, you can engage our Resident Director Service.
We also provide the services of a Nominee Agent and Shareholder.
Myanmar company secretaries are required to manage the corporate governance and statutory filings on behalf of the company they represent.
