Registration of Local Company

Local Company Registration is the process by which a new or existing business registers as a limited company (or other company forms). A company is a legal entity with a separate identity from those who own or run it. The vast majority of companies are limited liability companies where the liability of the members is limited by shares. A business cannot operate as a limited company until it has been incorporated at General Directorate of Companies Registration in Erbil, KRG.   Electronic registrations can be submitted electronically through this website by visiting the E-Services section. Occasional as well as regular customers can apply for incorporation. Paper (original) documents, must be delivered to the appropriate governorate office once the initial approval has been issued.   The local company may commence business once it is registered with the General Directorate of Companies Registration. This is on condition that the company does not require any other licenses/approvals from other government agencies in order to carry out the business activities.
