In Ghana, we can offer three different types of Company Formation in Ghana, such as Mainland companies, Free zone companies and Offshore companies.

Mainland Company Setup

A Mainland company is a company registered in the Registrar General Department (RGD) in Ghana. This means that if you choose to conduct your business in Accra Ghana, it is mandatory to register the business entity with one of the Registrar General Department in Ghana, which will then provide you with a business license to start doing business in Ghana. In Ghana, all twelve regions are having separate Registrar General Department offices in about three regions, namely, Accra, Takoradi and Kumasi. 

Free zone Company Setup with the Ghana Free Zones is special economic zones set up with the objective of offering tax-free, and free customs duty benefits to expatriate investors. Ghana Free zones are designed for boosting international business by providing complete ownership to foreign investors. A free zone company is the most fruitful legal entity that not only offers the benefit of 100% ownership to the investors or entrepreneurs but a host of other exclusive advantages that other legal forms do not have. Normally for setting up companies in Accra, Ghana, the expatriates need a local sponsor but through free zone companies the expatriate can set up their business without the local sponsor and he can enjoy 100% repatriation of capital profits. A free zone offers 100 % corporate and personal income tax benefits. 
Offshore Company Set Up

Ghana Offshore Company is a legal business entity, where you can do business internationally, outside  Ghana’s Jurisdiction. Ghana Offshore companies can hold properties and companies in any part of the world including Ghana. Offshore Companies in Ghana should not be confused with Ghana Free Zone companies. Unlike any other company, setting up an Offshore company mandatorily requires a registered agent.
