Doing Business in Kazakhstan is a special periodical of Sayat Zholshy & Partners annually published since 2006.  The 2018 edition of the periodical is already thirteenth in our history. 

Our brochure is aimed at the development and improvement of entrepreneurship in Kazakhstan.  We know that every successful business is backed by passionate shareholders and managers who strive to promote not only their own business but the entire country and nation.  Our mission is to support business environment.

Over the years we have distributed over 100,000 hardcopy versions of the Doing Business brochure free of charge.  On the Internet, our brochure has gone viral on many different sites.  On few occasions, its authorship was misappropriated by third parties who tried to reissue the brochure under their own names.  Nevertheless, we never stop improving our Doing Business brochure for the benefit of both national and international investors.
One brochure, of course, cannot cover all issues faced by the business community, but we have attempted to cover all key legal aspects of doing business in Kazakhstan.
In our brochure you will find information on how to properly, from legal perspective, set up, maintain and develop a business in Kazakhstan, as well as the fundamental principles of labour/employment, corporate, tax, civil, customs, antitrust, criminal and other areas of law.
The information contained in this brochure is of a general nature and reflects the provisions of the current Kazakhstan legislation effective as at 30 April 2018.

It should be noted, however, that this brochure should not be relied upon in acting, or refraining from acting, in relation to any particular business matter without specific legal advice.
