Understanding the

Regional Headquarters Scheme

International businesses are strongly recommended to set up a regional headquarters (RHQ) in the KSA

An RHQ gives the holder preferential treatment from the Saudi government, including tax breaks and the lifting of quotas on visas and workforce composition.

Most importantly, it allows you to take contracts with institutions, agencies or government-owned funds like the Public Investment Fund (PIF).

What is a Regional Headquarters?

  • An entity established in KSA that allows businesses to operate in the MENA region
  • It is designed to attract international firms to prioritise KSA as their base for MENA expansion

Am I eligible to set up an RHQ?

To obtain a Saudi business license and register an RHQ, you must:

  • Already operate in at least two other countries
  • Submit a business plan for your regional operations

How do I form an RHQ?

There are only two steps:

  • Apply for a licence from the Ministry of Investment
  • Register your RHQ

What are the benefits of an RHQ?

Saudi government offers perks for RHQ setup, including:

  • 30 years tax-free
  • 10-year exemption from Saudisation quota
  • No visa limitations
  • Spousal work permits

Why is setting up an RHQ so important?

International businesses without an RHQ in Saudi Arabia cannot take out contracts with government ministries, agencies or institutions. This includes the PIF.

How can I maintain regulatory compliance?

To qualify:

  • Start within 6 months of getting the license.
  • Have at least 15 full-time employees, including 3 top executives, after a year.
  • The RHQ must not generate revenue.

What our clients say about Centuro Global

Our team at Corva has been working with Centuro Global on immigration matters, and we have continuously received excellent service above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend using their services based on our experience.

Jacqueline Bosworth

Director of People Operations, CORVA

As a growing technology business, it is paramount to fully understand the markets you are entering. Centuro Global is our go-to source for information on international markets from a financial and legal perspective.

The Centuro Connect platform makes finding specific data seamless, through a simple and intuitive platform that is a pleasure to use.

Josh Harris

Founder & CEO, Doc2

Very useful, informative platform which is easy to navigate to find top line information we require for our growing European business. We also liked the straight talking and easy to understand language used, as opposed to other sites that can be complicated and full of legal jargon that is hard to interpret.

Kelly Hawken

Head of People & Culture, Europe, A-Gas

I found the platform really easy to navigate and has lots of useful content for almost every country.

The expert support is a great feature and we would be keen to see more categories for immigration.

Hamish Diack

Head of Global Mobility, Middle East & Africa, Atkins Global

Very intuitive platform with vast amount of information on entity set up, tax rates, immigration process and much more. As the Head of a large Global HR team, this type of information is really useful and saves us time and expense when researching new markets around the world.

Richard Nicholl

Vice President Human Resources, SNC-Lavalin

We at Hiveage are in the process of establishing our EU presence with the UK as our headquarters. As the founder of a self-funded business, I always look for the strategic advice and guidance that is timely and cost-effective, and saves me the effort of doing exhaustive research about different countries and their laws.

Centuro Global has been helping me in the process over the last several years as and when I need it, so that I can proceed without worrying about the complications related to legal and compliance issues. 

Lankitha Wimalarathna

This is a fantastic platform that lays out complex information in a really easy to use and digestible format. It really simplifies the understanding of the requirements when undertaking international expansion.

Will Donnelly

Co-founder

This is a game changer for cutting through the legal noise when making a move overseas. I was really impressed with the depth of content you get up front at no cost.

Harry McInley

Co-founder, 1PUTT

The Centuro Connect online platform is simple and easy to use. Both the experts and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable in legal matters pertaining to many different countries—and they’re super easy to communicate with!

Lankitha Wimalarathna

Founder & CEO, Hiveage

We found this platform to be extremely helpful. The assistance they provided when we set up an entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was invaluable.

I would highly recommend Centuro Connect to companies who need to save time and money and need quick access to accurate data when looking to set up entities in complex jurisdictions.
