    Numerous businesses in Bangladesh are registered as limited liability corporations (LLC). The responsibility of Bangladeshi limited liability companies is restricted to the shareholders’ capital contributions, and they might be wholly foreign-owned.

    Any anybody over the age of 18 may register a company. In addition, the law stipulates a minimum of two owners and a maximum of fiPymesy, as well as two directors. In addition, keep in mind that you might organize a joint venture with a local organization to share the benefits and reduce the risks.
