Legal and tax support with the development of your infrastructure and large projects in Morocco
Moroccan infrastructure: multiple opportunities
Although Morocco now has ports, airports, railway, motorway and telecommunications networks up to international standards, the State continues to encourage the development of large-scale projects, supporting ambitious sectoral strategies.
Whether it is in transport (particularly the development of road infrastructure), energy supply or social infrastructure (in the healthcare, justice, education and housing sectors), these large public projects attract financial institutions as well as Moroccan and foreign investors and private operators. They are invited to participate through calls for tender, in an environment favourable to this type of partnerships (Morocco benefits from 12 free zones spread around the country).
From initial consultation to management of the contract, our firm of legal and tax advisors supports you at every stage of your project.
Essential legal and tax support
What are the most appropriate investment methods and structures for a given contract in view of your objectives and obligations? What tax advantages can you benefit from? How can you optimise your project and make the most of the opportunities offered, while complying with applicable rules?
As specialists in setting up and implementing these public-private partnerships (PPP), our legal and tax advisors in Morocco have the capabilities to provide strategic answers to these crucial questions, which are decisive to the success of your project. We have a vast range of expertise and specialist fields in order to accompany you face a wide range of issues (design, construction works, financing, operations, maintenance, insurance, etc:
