UAE-based Wafeq raises $3mn fueling its entry into Egypt

Wafeq, a UAE-based modern and easy-to-use accounting platform, has raised a $3 million in seed round led by Raed Ventures and saw participation from Wamda Capital, both of which are two of the most prominent names in the region’s early-stage funding ecosystem.

Built for the unmet finance and accounting needs of small and medium businesses in the Middle East, this fundraiser will fuel Wafeq’s entry into Egypt, while doubling down on its presence in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Businesses using Wafeq create over 630,000 invoices every month, with total monthly invoiced amounts exceeding $117 million.

With the digitization of accounting practices in Saudi Arabia and Egypt and the introduction of corporate tax in the UAE, the three largest economies in North Africa and the GCC are undergoing a significant shift in financial reporting. Wafeq meets every requirement of Saudi Arabia’s Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA), the UAE’s Federal Tax Authority, and soon the Egyptian Tax Authority.
