Whatever the activity to be exercised by the company, choosing a status or legal form will be between, creating a sole proprietorship or create a company.
Sole Proprietorship:
The contractor and the business are one and the same person

That implies :

  • Great freedom of action: the entrepreneur is the only master on board and is accountable to no one. The concept of “misuse of company assets” does not exist in the individual enterprise.
  • In return, the professional and personal assets are legally confused.
  • The contractor is responsible for business debts on all of its assets.
  • The company officially carries the name of its leader, which it is possible to add a trade name.
The company :
Gives birth to a new person, distinct from the person of the entrepreneur

That implies :

  • Being a “new person”, the company has a name (name), a home (headquarters) and has a minimum initial contribution constituting its heritage to face its first investments and initial expenses (share capital).
  • The company has its own heritage. In case of difficulties of the company, the personal property of leaders and associates will be immune to the action of the creditors of the company, with the exception of the partnership in which each partner is jointly and fully liable with the company.
  • The designated leader to represent the company vis to third parties is not acting on his own behalf, but on behalf and for the account of a separate legal entity. There are a significant number of companies; we will limit ourselves to the most common:
    • Company Unipersonal with Limited Responsibility (SUARL): This is a company with sole shareholder,
    • the Limited Liability Company (LLC)
    • Limited company (LC) in classic form, ie governed by a board of directors

Plan totally exporting companies:
The investment incentives code defined the totally exporting companies as those:

  • whose production is entirely abroad
  • whose services are performed wholly abroad
  • including the provision of services are made to Tunisia but used wholly abroad
  • working exclusively with totally exporting companies, established companies in the business parks and the financial and banking organizations working mainly with non-residents.

Totally exporting enterprises may be allowed to locally sell part of their turnover or production of up to 30% of their turnover on exports, ex works, carried out during the previous calendar year.

Regime of offshore companies:
Totally exporting enterprises are considered non-resident (offshore) when capital is held at least 66% by non Tunisian and foreign residents through an import of convertible currencies.
We then say that a company is “offshore” when it established its headquarters in a country where it has no trade and whose leaders are not responsible homes.
Plan partly exporting companies :
Are considered as partially exporting, companies that have the same activities as wholly exporting but making less than 80% of their total export business.

  • totally exporting companies benefit from total tax relief of profits reinvested within themselves and that, subject to the minimum tax.

  • the suspension of VAT and possibly consumption duty due on services, equipment, raw materials, products and semi-locally acquired and necessary for its activities;
  • the exemption of other duties and taxes (contribution to FOPROLOS – TFP – TCL – Registration fees and stamp …)
