Enterprise Registration

What We Do?

Enterprise Registration

Enterprise Registration or Licensing refers to the permission given by the competent authorities for the establishment and operation of the businesses within the scope of the Regulation on Opening and Operating Licenses.

Syrian and International Protection Refugee entrepreneurs are required to obtain business licenses from the competent authorities to start or continue their activities. Licensing procedures vary according to the type of workplace, work area and activities. In this context, Syrian entrepreneurs need support to carry out the process with the competent authorities and to complete the procedures.
