Jordan Company Documents

Document Order

As company incorporation agents our experience and relationship with the Ministry of Industry and Trade means, we can obtain registry copies of company documents and conduct comprehensive Jordan company searches.

To provide the search we require the Arabic company name and company registration number. The company search report is provided in English.

The most common form of incorporation in Jordan is through a Limited Liability Company, equivalent to a UK Private Limited Company offering limited liability to its shareholders and not allowing the public sale of shares.

The name of a Jordanian company must be derived from its objectives and must end with “Limited Liability” or “W.L.L”.
