ABOUT PRIME – Bahrain’s leading office services and support consultancy
Founded in 2005, PRIME is the first company in Bahrain to provide serviced offices and specialise in business services for the domestic and international markets. For over 15 years, we have continued to pioneer specialist business services. For example, we were the first to offer serviced offices in 2005, and videoconferencing facilities in 2006. Since 2012, we have also provided comprehensive financial and accounting services.
While others have copied our approach, nobody, we believe, offers our range of services under one roof nor to the standard of excellence for which we are renowned.
We are a relatively young company, yet we are agile, constantly evolving with the economic climate within which we operate.
We regularly add new services, guided by our clients’ needs as well as the changing requirements mandated by the corporate environment in Bahrain. Our aim remains, as always, to facilitate commercial and administrative operations, leaving our clients free to focus on their core business.
We constantly monitor any new directives issued by the Government in Bahrain and study their impact in order to provide the most up-to-date advice and effective support. We regularly notify our clients about new directives, issues of compliance, and appropriate solutions.
Our status as an Affiliated Partner of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism also brings you countless advantages by facilitating required administrative applications and approvals. For instance, we are licensed to directly provide approved registered office addresses. We can also fast-track changes to and renewals of commercial registrations.
Our experienced Immigration team will identify exactly which visas and other documentation you, your family, your employees and staff require – and process everything for you, quickly and smoothly. We are thorough in our approach and ensure each and every step adheres to all rules and regulations. For details, see Bahrain Visa Services.
Intellectual property is a major issue for many companies doing business in the region, and our IP specialist can assist with all your concerns. For more information, see Intellectual Property.
For more complex commercial and legal matters, we are affiliated with Zu’bi and Partners, one of Bahrain’s oldest law firms and a leading authority in all areas of legal practice. More information is available under Personnel and Affiliates.
Our wide range of financial support services includes banking, bookkeeping, payroll, auditing and VAT services. All are designed to keep your business running smoothly while you concentrate on your key activities. For details, see Financial and Accounting services.
Other services include company formation, secretarial assistance and comprehensive support – for details, see our Support Services section.
Our clients have access to all the above services, under one roof. Our overall offering is, quite simply, unmatched.
