Question: I am in America. I have an apartment in Mukono, Uganda and desire to start a small business in Uganda. I will be trying to import items from Turkey to sell in Uganda. Is it possible for me to register my business when I am not there?
My business partner is in Turkey and our man who works with us from Uganda will come with me to Turkey. He will fly to Istanbul to meet me. How can we set up a small business as my business and yet have all three of us on the business? And can I airship my signed papers to the registry because I cannot now come to Uganda? I hope to come within the next year.
It is important I set up the business now because of taxes I must pay for supporting friends and employees in Uganda while I have no registered business?
Answer: Dear Erin, Thanks for your valued business inquiry. The easiest way you can register your business when you're not in Uganda is through a Business Consultant and/or law firm.
We do offer these kinds of services and we can thus assist you to register your business.
All your company documentation will be securely kept at our collaborating law firm and you will receive all hard copies for signing by courier and return them for submission to the relevant government institutions.
