Local Representative for Foreign Companies
Foreign companies are required by Section 979 of the Companies Act to have at least one local representative. The local representative is responsible for ensuring that the branch complies with the requirements of the Act. In addition, the foreign company is required to establish and maintain a registered office in Kenya which is kept open on each business day and at which a local representative is present. We provide local representative and registered office services to ease your compliance.

In the eventually that you wish to cease operations and dissolve the company, we guide and handle the process of de-registration up to the point that the company is struck off the register of companies.
