Starting a small company in Sri Lanka

Hi there!

I'm looking to start up a small business in Sri Lanka and wondering how difficult it is and costs etc.

I'm currently based in the UAE but I am from the Netherlands!

Any advice would be appreciated.


Hi , Depends on nature of business and investment amount. Visit BOI Sri Lanka website. for investment below $ 100,000 you need to find a local partner. Please let me know the business. I can provide more details .

Everything depend on type of your business

The costs, as well as the rules and regulations, depend on the type of business you would like to start. My recommendation is to go for a loan as you'll always be on the safe side. Visit the website of Seylan Bank. They have various loan options that'll certainly help you.
