Qatar Business, Taxation and Offshore Information

Qatar consists of a peninsula jutting north into the Persian Gulf and some nearby islets. The capital and by far the largest city is Doha. Qatar has a population of just under 2.9 million (August 2020 estimate). It is estimated that 40% are Arab, 18% Indian, 18% Pakistani and 10% Iranian, with 14% making up other ethnic groups. The principal religion is Islam.

Despite some recent attempts at modernization, Qatar is still effectively an absolute monarchy. Both the head of state (the emir) and head of government (the prime minister) are always members of the ruling Al-Thani family. The current emir is Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, and the prime minister is Abdallah bin Nasir bin Khalifa. More »
