Annual License Renewals & Updates

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, I can provide you with general information about annual license renewals and updates in Dubai. However, please note that regulations and procedures may have changed since then, so I recommend verifying the information with official sources or consulting with relevant authorities for the most up-to-date information.

  • In Dubai, businesses are required to renew their trade licenses annually to maintain their legal status and continue operating. The process for annual license renewals and updates typically involves the following steps.

    Explanation About Annual License Renewals & Updates

    It's important to stay informed about any changes to regulations or procedures that might have occurred since my last update.

    You can check the official website of the Dubai Department

    of Economic Development (DED)

    or consult with a business consultant or legal expert in Dubai for the most current and accurate information regarding annual license renewals and updates.

    Before renewing your trade license, ensure that all required documents are up to date. These may include:
  • 1. Copy of the existing trade license
  • 2. Copy of the passport and residence visa of the business owner and partners
  • 3. Emirates ID of the business owner and partners
  • 4. Lease agreement for the business premises (Ejari)
  • 5. No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the landlord
  • 6. Any other documents specific to your business activity or legal structure
  • You will need to submit the renewal application to the relevant authority, which is typically the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai. This can often be done online through the official portal or in person at the DED customer service centers.

    Pay the required renewal fees. The fees can vary based on factors such as the type of business activity, the legal structure of the business, and the duration of the license renewal.

    In some cases, a physical inspection of your business premises might be required before the renewal is approved. This is to ensure that you are complying with relevant regulations and standards.

    Once all documentation is submitted, fees are paid, and any required inspections are passed, your trade license renewal will be processed. You will receive the renewed license once it is approved.

    If there are any changes to your business information, such as ownership structure, business activity, or contact details, you should update this information during the renewal process to ensure accurate records.
