When is a company considered to be controlled by a foreigner and what are its borrowing powers?

A company in which 50% or more of the shares are subscribed by a foreign national would be regarded as a company controlled by a person resident outside Pakistan. Foreign-controlled companies engaged in manufacturing are entitled to borrow working capital without limit; semi-manufacturing and non-manufacturing concerns are allowed to borrow 75% and 50% respectively of their paid up capital including reserves. Such companies engaged in manufacturing also permitted to raise rupee capital requirements from local banks or financial institutions. Except for restriction above, corporations controlled by aliens are treated on same basis as Pakistani controlled companies.
