The UAE is a resource-rich, dynamic economy with a highly efficient business climate.

The business environment, powered by free market policies, encourages the establishment of a wide spectrum of commercial and industrial activities. Many see UAE as a land of opportunities, however it often presents challenges for those looking to start business in the country as setting up a business in UAE isn’t easy!

The vibrancy in the UAE market is constantly attracting new companies from around the world. Here’s an overview of how they could be structured (indicative and not exhaustive).

  • Branch of a Foreign Company within a Free Zone or outside a Free Zone in the UAE
  • Representative Office of a Foreign Company
  • Free Zone Limited Liability Company
  •  Limited Liability Company: Must have one or more UAE National as partner whose shareholding shall not be less than 51% of the paid-up capital
  • Private / Public Shareholding Company: Must have one or more UAE National as partner whose shareholding shall not be less than 51% of the paid-up capital

Foreign companies may carry out commercial or industrial activity in the UAE after complying with registration and licensing procedures.

Many face challenges in terms of gaining a sound understanding of the labour law, getting visa for their employees especially those who want to come on a short term basis to set-up their business.
