Commercial License

Commercial License in Dubai, UAE

A Commercial License in Dubai is granted for business activities that involve the buying / selling of goods, commodities and/or services. Examples of businesses that require a Commercial License include retail outlets, trading establishments, real estate brokerages, logistics companies, and educational / training institutions.

With a single Commercial License, an entity may undertake up to ten allied business activities. A Commercial License is granted by the Department of Economic Development in the emirate where you plan to set up your business establishment. If you are setting up your business in a free zone, the respective Free Zone Authority will apply for a Commercial License with the Department of Economic Development on your behalf.

How to Apply for a Commercial License in Dubai, UAE

The first step involves the selection of your business entity’s name. This is not so simple as it sounds, for there are rules which specify how you can name your company. For instance, you cannot have a name that has religious connotations or is associated in any way with religion.

A good business setup consultant can run a search to find out if the name you have in mind is already registered to another firm. It makes sense to avoid similar-sounding names because you don’t want customers looking for Asian Salon to knock on your door if you run Asian Shipping.

Once you have decided on your unique name, you can lodge an application for a Commercial License with the Department of Economic Development in the emirate where you are planning to launch your business. If you have an experienced company formation specialist in your corner, he/she can guide you correctly as to what additional approvals need to be secured.
