Extracts from commercial register of Afghanistan

The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is a sovereign state located in South and Central Asia. It is a unitary presidential Islamic republic. Afghanistan is currently ruled by the President and a Chief Executive – a special position created after two candidates claimed victory in 2014 presidential elections (one became a president, and the other took this newly created post in the Government of Afghanistan). Local currency is the Afghani. Official languages are Pashto and Dari. Afghanistan is a member state of the United Nations, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Non-Aligned Movement and other international organisations.

Afghanistan is one of the world’s least developed countries. The core sector of the local economy is agriculture. Afghanistan also has an abundance of mineral resources, but for the most part they remain intact. Economic development of the country is impeded by political instability, high level of crime, and ongoing war. Moreover, Afghanistan is the world’s largest producer of opium, which makes a significant contribution to the country’s major black market, as well as black markets of other countries.

Afghanistan is not an offshore jurisdiction or tax haven. At the same time, it causes major concerns in the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF). Measures against ML/FT taken by Afghanistan are monitored by the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF).

Business activities in Afghanistan are regulated by the Civil Code, Corporations Act, Limited Liability Companies Act, Partnerships Act, and other relevant laws.
