Key business start-up figures in Lebanon

This subject examines the conditions for founding a new company: the number of steps, the time spent and the costs required for a limited liability company to be able to legally begin operations.

New business density data are presented, defined as the number of new registrations per 1,000 people of working age (15-64 years). Like in the World Bank’s annual Doing Business reports, the measured units are limited liability companies registered in the private formal sector.
