It applies to commercial companies whose headquarters is in Oman or which carry out their main activity in the Sultanate. The law includes articles that keep pace with the current economic situation and regulate the establishment and work of various types of companies by simplifying procedures for investors through creating the appropriate environment, providing the protection for investors and the commercial companies in accordance with the relevant standards and procedures.
