How do I set up a Business?

  • Introduction: Our platform focuses on specific administrative/legal needs of people relating to registration of businesses.

The Business Name is the simplest business form under which one can operate a business.

  • Why is the process needed: The benefit of registering a business is that one creates an avenue to easily obtain a trading license from the relevant county government.

In addition to the above, when compared to registering a company, the process of registering a business is cheap and faster

  • Risk/what happens if the process is not undertaken: Lack of registering a business limits one from obtaining the relevant licenses and hence you cannot trade.

Set out below is a summary of the requirements, the procedure and the time frame for registering a business.
