A Clear Path to Your Online Store

Virtue Corporate Services guides you through the e-commerce license process:

Choosing Your  Location:

They help you decide between the mainland, offering wider market access, or a free zone, with its simplified procedures and lower fees.

Company Name & Structure:

They assist in selecting a brand-aligned and compliant name and choosing the optimal business structure (sole proprietorship, LLC, etc.) for your needs.

License Application & Support:

They work with you to assemble the required documents and submit your application to the relevant authority (Department of Economic Development for the Mainland or your chosen free zone authority).

Approval & Set-Up:

After approval, they assist with completing formalities like opening a corporate bank account and obtaining necessary permits.

Navigating Your Options: Mainland vs. Free Zone

Mainland: Ideal for targeting the entire UAE market, but with potentially higher costs and more complex procedures.

Free Zone: Often preferred for ease of set-up, lower fees, and 100% foreign ownership. However, some zones restrict direct sales to UAE consumers. They help you weigh the pros and cons to choose the best fit for your business.

Benefits of an E-Commerce License

Legality & Trust: Operate with legitimacy and build customer confidence.

Corporate Bank Account: Essential for secure business transactions and financial management.

Visas (Potential): Depending on the license type and location, you may be eligible for residency visas for yourself and your employees.

Market Potential: A Thriving Digital Landscape

The UAE boasts a tech-savvy population with high internet penetration, making it a prime ground for e-commerce ventures. The government’s support for innovation further fuels this growth.

Cost Considerations: Balancing Budget and Benefits

E-commerce license fees vary based on factors like location, business activity, and company structure. Expect a range of AED 5,000 to AED 20,000 per year, with free zones typically offering lower costs. Virtue Corporate Services provides transparent cost breakdowns to help you plan effectively.
