10 steps to incorporating in Senegal

Thanks to our Senegal business incorporation services, our Client will not have to travel to start his company in Senegal, provided that a Power of Attorney is issued to our Senegal incorporation agent who will then complete all procedures on his behalf. Please refer to timelines page for standard timelines to complete the engagement, which is usually completed following the below steps:
