Am wondering if anyone can help.
Does anyone know how to setup a foreign company in Tunisia where it is permissible to move currency between Tunisia and the UK- is there a limit or amount that needs to be held in an account?

What are the best things to export from Tunisia that would justify this project- Im not talking setting up a million dollar company - something considered simple and not available in the UK but that would sell.

Thanks all

Speak to a Tunisian accountant, they will set up the company. You will need a hard currency account and a business plan. There are no limits on the amounts, but it must be a legitimate business. As for the goods to export, well the world (at least tunisia!) is your oyster. So what happened to the bakery business idea?

Thanks again Scottochott. The bakery idea is what we want to start in Tunisia but we want to be able to move money between both countries as we would be still living in the UK until the time arrives we can make the permanent move across- however if the only way is to do it is by setting up a foreign company to transfer funds then we need to look at a product we can also export from Tunisia to the UK...im not sure what products would work well as the UK has established companies and markets with products from all around the world with preferential rates such as olive oil from Spain and Greece..hence looking for a niche product to export also...

Not sure I've made myself clear, you can only transfer profits from a business, not simply transfer existing funds
