You can incorporate a 'sharikat al-mossahamah' in Egypt or a 'société anonyme' in Morocco; these are generally the most common legal structures for companies throughout all of Africa. In Egypt, you can also incorporate an SAE, an LLC and several other types of legal entity. SAE in Arabic stands for “sharikat al-mossahamah”, and closely resembles the United Kingdom’s plc. LLC in English stands for “limited liability company”, which is very similar to the United Kingdom’s limited company. Before registering a company, you should have a thorough understanding of all the advantages and disadvantages of each African jurisdiction, including Comoros, Mauritius, the Seychelles, Cape Verde, Mayotte, the Madeira Islands and the Canary Islands.
