The commercial law of Bahrain requires the company capital to be a multiple of 50 BHD per share. However with recent changes in the Commercial Companies Law, a Single Person Company (SPC) is now cancelled and all SPC’s were given a certain period of time to convert the Commercial Registration to a With Limited Liability Company (WLL).
As a result of the above change to the Commercial Companies Law, the requirement that a WLL have at least two shareholders has now been removed by the Amended Law. In order to make the conversion easier for SPCs, the Amended Law has removed any minimum capital requirement for a WLL.

A sole shareholder can now incorporate a With Limited Liability Company in Bahrain with minimum Capital requirement of 50BHD only.
