“A significant potential is offered to the offshoring sector in Morocco, particularly in a context marked by the growth of the world market and the existence of favorable structural trends in Morocco, including the diversification of the sectors of activity covered”Moulay Hafid Elalamy, Minister of Industry, Trade, Investment and Digital Economy

Offshore companies are companies that have chosen to relocate thetheir production in order to benefit from a simplification of the constitution of their structure and tax advantages in a foreign country.


IMorocco is one of the host countries for these companies because it has put in place a legal framework that favors this type of investment.

Offshoring: what is it?

The term "Offshoring" is a designation used to designate the relocation of the production of certain services from the territory of one country to the territory of another, which generally has lower production costs. Offshoring more specifically concerns services for which physical proximity to customers is not essential.

Why and who can set up an offshore company?

In the case of companies that pay too many charges and are unable to adequately remunerate their employees, offshore companies represent the ideal alternative. Indeed, the heaviness of social charges can even in some cases prevent companies from recruiting new employees essential to their development or from developing their activities.

Companies that can create offshore entities must mainly be in the field of communication or business development, liberal professions, import or export, real estate investment and advice or consulting.

Morocco has several advantages for the outsourcing of services, in particular:

  • strategic geographic location;

  • an incentive tax regime; 

  • the reception infrastructure; 

  • the telecommunications infrastructure; 

  • the business environment aligned with international standards; 

  • linguistic and cultural assets;

  • the availability and quality of human resources.
