2. Legal and Regulatory Requirements:


  • Company Registration: Choose a business structure (sole proprietorship, partnership, limited company) and register with the Companies Registry.

  • Business Licenses: Obtain necessary licenses, such as a Business Registration Certificate and a General Commercial License.

  • Taxation: Register for relevant taxes, including Profits Tax and Goods and Services Tax (GST).


3. Setting Up Operations:


  • Office Space: Secure an office space for administration, design, and marketing activities.

  • Manufacturing: Decide on production options:
