Direct Investment Promotion Law
The JV LLC in Kuwait is one of the most utilized business structures. For setting up this form of business, one director of any nationality is required. A Kuwaiti Shareholder who controls a 51% stake in the company is also required to be appointed. A foreign shareholder is restricted to owning only a 49% stake in this form of entity. The liability of the shareholders and directors is limited to a particular amount. The minimum paid-up capital for this form of entity is Kuwait Dinar 1000 (KD).
The Kuwaiti Foreign Direct Investment Law allows 100% foreign ownership in some form of entity. This would only be after securing the required consent and approvals from the Kuwaiti Direct Investment Promotion Agency (KDIPA). However, registering this entity would take about 180 days. The minimum paid-up capital to form this type of entity is between USD 70,000 to USD 1, 40,000. Due to this, the activities which are planned by this company must be implemented taking national significance.

Usually, there is no form of tax in these free zones. Customs duties and other duties would not also be levied on companies that carry out activities in this free zone.
This form of company is similar to public limited companies that offer their shares in a public stock exchange. Foreigners can also be shareholders of this form of entity. 49% shareholding must be the maximum unless an exemption is got from the KDIPA. To form this type of entity, such entity must be registered with the Ministry of Commerce and Investment.
