The UAE with its strategic position in the Middle East offers an excellent opportunity for foreign companies to setup and tap into the region’s market of approximately 2 billion people. Many successful multinationals have already established themselves here and there is greater potential for development as is witnessed by the recent economic boom in the region. Professing a beneficial zero tax policy, the business culture is multinational and the growth potential is unlike in any other place.
However, to succeed in the UAE market, companies need to carefully consider their initial set up options. As such, in order to setup a physical presence in the UAE, it is necessary that the entity have a registered trade license with the appropriate government body.
There are three jurisdictions in the UAE in which an entity may be set up:
(a) Mainland or “onshore”,
(b) One of the over 40 free zones in the UAE, and
(c) An offshore jurisdiction.
The appropriate jurisdiction depends on the nature of the activities of the intended company. As such, the choice of a legal form is an important consideration while setting up in the UAE as each legal form has its limitations and advantages. Depending on the type of business activity envisaged by our clients, we provide thorough advice on the most suitable solution and accompany our clients step by step through the process of company registration and setup in the UAE.
