    • Draft the Memorandum of Association (MOA) or Articles of Association – this document is crucial as it outlines the relevant details of the company and its objectives and is usually done with the help of a legal advisor. This will be presented like a business plan study.
    • The MOA/AOA is then to be attested by the relevant authority under the Ministry of Justice.
    • Only once the MOA / AOA is verified, that the trade license and tax certificate can be applied.
    • For all Mainland Companies, it is mandatory to have an address of a commercial office space against its name.
    • Once the trade license is obtained, the company can apply for a computer card or an establishment card from the ministry of interior. This is a crucial step while trying to register a company in Qatar.
    • Get (Tax Identification Number) TIN registered with the Public Revenue and Tax Authority
    • Get the Company Seal

    While I was interacting with a lot of companies looking for the right one to start my business with Creative Zone stood out right from the beginning. I am so glad that I was in contact with Jamie and he was extremely helpful and patient throughout the 6 months I took to narrow down my options. The level of personalization and dedication they have is commendable and post becoming a part of the Creative Zone Family and opening Fables and Hues with them I got to work with Ian who is the absolute best. Overall I am super happy with them and if you are looking to start a company then go to creative Zone because they continue their prompt and diligent service even after signing the papers. Thank you Jamie and Ian :)
