However, keeping up with the specific benefit a large-scale scheme may provide to an individual may be difficult to narrow down. Also, with more and more policies being incepted every year, there will be difficulties overseas Pakistanis face in deciding the best method benefit from these policies.

  • Business Start-ups

Startups often have problems getting registered with local business regulatory authorities such as Securities Exchange Commission Pakistan (SECP), in case of Pakistan or at Companies House in case of the United Kingdom. It will be tedious deciding a company name, developing a company structure, figuring out segments of the market and completing many other tasks necessary to get a new business going. This is especially true for startups, since they may have an innovative idea to provide value to consumers and may even have investors but often teams running startups lack experience and skill required to set up a business. Therefore, many startups end up not reaching their potential despite having raised decent funding and having brilliant ideas.

PFOC helps founders and those involved in running startups to make crucial decisions that separate them from other contemporaries. We recognize that decisions made earlier on in the life of a company are often much more important than ones made later, since earlier decisions narrow down choices the company might have in the future. Which is why we provide startups with a comprehensive business strategy that allows them to make decisions on branding, marketing, company growth, human resource strategy and much more by assessing the potential of their idea in the market.

  • Imports & Exports

A rising number of firms rely upon imports from other countries to source raw material for use in production. On the other hand, with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision of decreasing the Trade Deficit, a huge number of businesses are looking towards exports to carry out trading. However, in doing so, many businesses face challenges finding the right fit for their supply chain or the right market to target for their product range.

PFOC helps businesses identify what markets to target if you are looking to export and what type of suppliers to look at for imports. Our team of experts does this by researching similar products, complimentary products or simply where the use-case for your product best fits. As a result, we can help businesses expand into foreign markets in a way that might not otherwise be .

  • Custom Clearance

Navigating through bureaucratic red tape to move goods either in to or out of the country is a time-consuming and complicated chore. Customs may seize goods, delay their movement, or impose additional taxes that owners may be previously unaware of. Therefore, Overseas Pakistanis find themselves hesitant to send or receive goods that must go through Customs in Pakistan.

At PFOC, we recognize that the smooth and timely delivery of products from trading counterparts or friends and family members from another country can make both the recipient and sender’s lives much more convenient. Firstly, we decipher the legal classification of the product that is to be processed through customs. Following this, we assess taxes that may be levied on it. Next, we provide our clients with an assured timeline and cost for moving the product. Finally, we manage all communication with the Customs Office necessary to ship the goods. Because of this, clients don’t have to deal with unnecessary interruptions in their plans and enjoy peace of mind.

Given careful consideration and proper planning, this is then put into a will which records your last instructions on how your property will be dispensed posthumously.
