The OFT’s aim is to simplify the process for the establishment of new businesses in Gibraltar and provides free guidance and support to individuals or businesses that wish to start up. In particular the OFT can offers guidance about the legal registration requirements necessary before a business can start operating locally. This includes information about obtaining the relevant licence, registering with the Income Tax Office and the Department of Employment and any other related matters.
The OFT may also assist applicants by liaising with other Government departments and providing necessary information and documentation.
You can find general guidance about registering your business in Gibraltar and relevant business forms below. If you need specific help the easiest way to contact the OFT is by e-mail. Alternatively you can request assistance at the OFT's public counter or over the phone.
