IranianOffice, leader of Corporate & Business Development services in Iran

Operating Support

IranianOffice Corporate Services enable companies operating in Iran to streamline their Iranian operations: Shared Service Centers, Employee Outsourcing and Organization Assessments & Change Management

Shared Service Centers (SSC)

Our Shared Service Centers enable you to focus on your front office activities, supported by a highly professional, scalable and cost-effective back-office.

Scalable and cost-effective, our Shared Services Centers for Accounting, Controlling, Tax, Corporate Legal, HR or IT are particularly relevant in 2 cases: 

  • When your expansion plans require flexibility and focus, therefore the implementation of a permanent back-office structure in Iran is not a priority, at least for some time.
  • When having a JV with an Iranian partner, which requires extremely professional, fair and transparent accounting, controlling & reporting in order to ensure that your investments, people and business interests are safe.

We select and supervise professionals with the best level of expertise and put them at your disposal for the duration of your choice, they can also work on site or from our offices. 

We work out with you the most adapted SSC model for a perfect match to your short term need and your long-term strategy.

Employee Outsourcing

Employee outsourcing is dedicated to international companies willing to operate in Iran without having a permanent statutory structure, or making the choice of having no permanent employees in their Iranian structure.

This solution is particularly adapted when you need local salesperson(s), or your (future) manager in Iran, or some engineers in the framework of a specific project.

IranianOffice hires and carries your employee(s) on its dedicated structure in Iran and deals with all HR, legal, financial, social & tax aspects. In the case of expatriates, we also take care of work permit and visa, as well as housing.

This service is invoiced either from Iran or from Europe, to our clients’ best convenience.

Organization Assessment & Change Management

Your expansion and development plans in Iran lead to organizational changes and process adaptations both internally and with third parties and partners.Organizational issues, both Human and Process related, become particularly critical after the conclusion of an acquisition or a JV, as it is key to its success.

We provide the local or international management of our clients with:
- a clear view of their present operations, partner or sales network.
- and a gap analysis of their targeted organization.

We share the best practices and our knowledge of markets and people to ensure the manageability and improved performance of your Iranian operations.

We take pride in succeeding 100% of our missions, so we always start by building a deep understanding of the client's business model & key factors of success and assess their adaptability to the Iranian environment.

About Iran

The expected progressive end of sanctions ushers into a new era for Iran. Iran is not just another « emerging market », it is a large, educated and developed country that is already becoming a strategic place to be for international companies of any size.

A huge and developed market

Iran has a large population of 80 million, well-educated and predominantly middle-class. It enjoys modern and westernized lifestyle standards (84% internet penetrations, 1.5 mobile phone per inhabitant).

With a huge growth potential after decades of sanctions, Iran has the potential catch-up and its economy should in the coming years occupy a leading position in the Middle East and worldwide. Iran is also an energy superpower, with the 4th world proven oil reserves and the 2nd world gas reserve.

Solid business perspectives

After years of sanctions, Iran needs to renovate its infrastructures (transport, telecom, water, etc.), and its population is eager to access to a more western lifestyle, hence more consumer products.

A Favorable Business Environment

Iranian tax system is competitive - corporate tax is at 25%, with numerous exemptions such as export activities, free tax zones (FTZ) and special economic zones (SEZ) and double taxation agreements have already been concluded with several countries such as Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria & Poland.

However, the legal, tax, social and business environment is complex, and there is no simple user manual on how to do business with or in Iran.

International banks are not in Iran, some big audit firms refer to a “best friend” in Iran, but none of them is yet able to provide international clients with the level of support they would need on such matters.
