Three ways to set up a mainland company in the UAE.

We help to identify the proper location, local service agent and enlighten on the strategic planning for the company.

LLC Company Branch of Foreign Company Representative Office

One way of setting up a mainland business operation in Dubai is through a Limited Liability Company or LLC. An LLC is the most prevalent company type in UAE. It can be created by a minimum of 2 shareholders and a maximum of 50 shareholders, whose liability is limited to their business capital shares.

Why set up an LLC in UAE?

  • Get special visa privileges for you and your family.
  • You can create multiple branches of your company.
  • Enjoy uninterrupted business without a partner or corporate service agent.
  • Easy of opening bank accounts and access to business credit cards. 
  • Full ownership of legal documents and assets.

Setting up a foreign branch office in UAE permits you to perform all activities offered by its parent company. This is subject to approval on activities as specified in the license at the time of incorporation and approved by the Ministry of Economy.

Branch of Foreign Companies are allowed to enter into contracts and conduct local business plus are permitted to show the permitted activities of the parent companies. Profit share can be kept at 100% and local, and national involvement is as a local service agent only.

Setting up a Representative Office allows you to market the services or products offered by the parent company. A Representative office cannot commercially trade or sign contracts in the UAE. Both these legal forms need a service agent. Either as an individual or corporate vehicle to complete the incorporation process. A service agent’s responsibility is to render labour and immigration services for the company. They hold no financial liabilities or obligations related to the company inside and outside the Emirate.
