USAID Jordan LENS is currently working with the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply (MoITS) - Central Trade & Industrial Registration Directorate (CRD) and the Companies Control Department (CCD) to improve the efficiency of business registration process for MSEs.
From the feedback gather from ministries, lawyers, government officials, and business owners it was realized there is a huge demand for one resource that outline the entire process. Hence the guide was developed as an easy-to-follow, reader-friendly “Startup Guide” that clearly and comprehensively outlines the business registration and licensing process in Jordan. This is the first time such a guide has been developed in Jordan. The guide explains the different legal business structures for small businesses and provides a brief, two-page “quiz” to help entrepreneurs determine the most appropriate businesstructure. The guide will appeal to any Jordanian interested in starting a small business, especially a micro or small enterprise .
The Startup Guide will be free and available in eight (8) CCD branches, eleven (11) MoITS directorates, seventeen (17) Chambers of Commerce, four (4) Chambers of Industry and nine (9) partner municipalities across Jordan. In total, the Startup Guide will be available in 49 sites across all 12 governorates in Jordan. Guide is also available online www.startupguidejo.com
