Online Businesses are very successful in Dubai. The market may not be as large as Asia but still it has a lot of potential to grow. There are a few steps that you need to go through in order to establish and promote your online business in Dubai.
- Draft a plan: It is very important to map every necessary detail down before you step into the practicalities. You need to be sure of what you want to sell and how it is beneficial for the market. Your budget needs to be the next concern. A decent amount of investment that could bear initial breakeven must be at hand.
- Licensing: This is an extremely important aspect that needs attention. You would not want your business to be shut down before it booms, or claimed illegal while it is popular, just because you were too lenient towards this legal requirement. In order to be an authentic web-based business, you need a license from the Department of Economic Development (DED).
- Developing a Website: In order to have your presence online and let the customers know what you offer, you need to have a well-designed and functional website. A well-known web agency can help you create a web design which guarantees a good user experience and generation of profit. Your website should be operative 24/7. For this you first need to pick a domain name and get it registered. Dubai has a lot of companies that offer services regarding the domain name registration.
- Bank Account: Your online business will obviously require buying and selling transactions and for that you require a bank account that’s registered in the company’s name, in one of the well-known banks of Dubai. The bank must be provided with all the legal documents.
- Local Service Agent: If you are from another country and you plan on setting up your online business in Dubai, you require an office set up and a license to run your business. This will have to be followed by a local service agent. This agent will provide the government registration services for a fixed amount of fee, on an annual basis. He does not have any shareholding in your business.
