As a foreigner, are there any restrictions if I want to become a commercial representative?
As a foreign private person, you cannot be a commercial representative. However, there is an exception under two conditions: (1) you should have the acquired rights and (2) a Lebanese national should get the same treatment should the Lebanese decide to practice the same activity in your country of origin.
If I have a product is it necessary to have a trademark?
No, it isn't. A trademark is optional unless there are legal provisions to the contrary.
If I am trying to raise capital to pay founders, should I raise money?
No, it is better you don’t.
Can I make in-kind contributions to my joint stock company?
Yes, you can. Shareholders can make in-kind contributions subject to appraisal by an expert duly pointed by the court.
The value of the in-kind shares should be entirely settled at the formation of the company and such shares cannot be put in circulation before two years pass from the date of formation of the company.
