Regulator's Regime and Corporate Setup Facts.

Corporate Setup.

Of course, the beginning of each setup process is the incorporation of the company in Kazakhstan.


When the company is founded, PAMEROY applies for your BIN number (Business Identification Number), which is indispensable in Kazakhstan for tax and register purposes.


At the same time you or a local director (nominee) will be appointed. You may select if you want to run the business in your name or let a nominee represent your company. You are welcome to inquire about the terms of the nominee director's positions or active supporting directors to support you.


For your company you will receive the electronic commercial register extract as well as the deed of incorporation, statute, tax number certificate in the original as well as professional translations into English  (we always recommend in English drafted documents to simplify the dealings with future international partners).


The company formation takes about 2-3 weeks. You will be appointed as shareholder and sole beneficiary. The required local director will be appointed as passive director.


Previously, without exception, the National Bank was responsible, which often involved lengthy processings.

Nowadays the local regulators only issue licenses and accreditations for companies that are subject to licensing. Meaning, since FX, Crypto and most payment services are unregulated, you will receive now a valid comprehensive legal opinion.

Once the status of being a Financial Services Provider has been granted in the Commercial register you may start your business operations.


This legal opinion document, issued by the respective local law firm and legalized by a local Notary, will state, that your entity is permitted perform Payment Processing (PSP) activities, Forex Trading as well Crypto based activities.
