Additional documentation costs may also apply, including legal translations and ministry approvals. Several steps must be taken to start an e-commerce business in the UAE. However, once an entrepreneur has chosen an office space, he or she can choose from the many options available in the e-commerce world.

General trading license:

The process of obtaining a general trading license in the UAE free zone is easy and can be completed in a matter of minutes. Depending on the type of business that you plan to run, additional documents may be required, such as a company registration certificate and a tax return. In addition to this, a general trading license will allow you to lease office and warehouse space in the UAE. The cost of obtaining a general trading license can vary depending on several factors, but generally, the fee will be in the range of AED 8,500 – AED 15,500.

Once you have chosen the type of business you wish to conduct, you’ll need to choose a name for your new company. There are many acceptable names for companies in the UAE, but the most popular choice is the LLC Company Structure. Depending on the size of your office, a business name may be required. Despite this, naming conventions in the UAE are relatively common sense. However, if you don’t want to use a common name, it’s OK to choose an unusual company name.
