Are you planning to set up company in Dubai?

Dubai continues to show its economic stability in the international market, attracting a lot of business investors. Last year, it has been ranked as the 5th highest performing metropolitan economy in the world based on growth in GDP per capita and employment rates.

The key is to find a legal team that offers trusted licensing, sponsoring, and partner sourcing services. They take all the hassle out of the start-up process, negotiating and completing all necessary legal paperwork.

Before you start, here are three things you should know:

  1. Research about the business sector you aim to operate within. Study the mbusiness setup in Dubaiarket conditions, the competition, and forecast results. Licensing should be prioritized. Any business must have a Business (Trade) License in Dubai.
  1. The law requires to have a local partner who will own 51% of the company. He doesn’t need to contribute to the start-up investment. If you want to own 100% of your company and do not want to have a local partner, it can only be possible in the Free Zone.
  1. Upon registration, you are required to show the Ministry of Commerce that you have a substantial sum of money to invest. Initial overheads are lower within the free zone. However, there are restrictions when it comes to visas and permits.

Company Registration in Dubai

Be ready for some legal and bureaucratic hurdles along the way. Entrepreneurs have to reserve a company name, and apply for registration at the Department of Economic Development (DED).
