Post Licensing

Introducing Post Licensing

The operations of the company can start when its main licenses including the Enterprise Registration Certificate (ERC) and the Investment Registration Certificate (IRC) have been granted or adjusted. However, some business sectors can be subject to further sub-licensing requirements or some procedures can be required during the operations of the company. Obtaining the required sub-licenses is mandatory before operating the related business sectors to avoid any liability, administrative fines or even the suspension of the company.
