Representative Offices

Under the Law on Investment, foreign legal entities may establish representative offices, which are not separate legal entities. A representative office is only allowed to undertake representative functions and the protection of the interests of its head office. Representative offices do not have charter capital and, accordingly, it is the head office that is legally responsible for liabilities to third parties.

The registration procedures for representative offices are similar to those for Mongolian legal entities. For tax purposes representative offices are registered with the State Tax Department.
