Step 2 – Choose the Type of Business and License Type For Your Activities for Your UAE Company Formation 

This determines your license category. Broadly, commercial – trading, professional or industrial licenses are available and specialized activities (e.g. banking) which will need further special approvals.

Popular Types of UAE Company Formation – Popular Types of UAE Companies

UAE Offshore Company 

Offshore companies 0%-taxed and 100% foreign–owned limited liability companies. They are not regarded as tax resident-domiciled – no certificate of tax residence can be issued for this type of company – in the UAE as it is only allowed to transact outside the UAE. But a UAE bank account can be opened and operated and a UAE registered address used. Services of local professionals can be sourced and real estate in the UAE can be purchased with this company. The cheapest type of company.

These companies are also fully acceptable and do not appear in any ‘international black lists’, except being subject to stricter due diligence procedures by local banks.  Practical use in tax planning / acceptability: offshore companies can be used to invoice Cyprus or Malta companies or act as holding companies of Malta or Cyprus companies without problems from the local tax authorities. In other high-tax EU countries there might be problems relating to the acceptability of offshore company invoices. The future: Offshore companies internationally have an uncertain future in the next 3-5 years however at the moment they are used internationally by thousands of clients. The first problem, in time, might be increased difficulty to open bank accounts.

Types available:

  • RAK ICC Company Formation
  • RAK Offshore Company Formation
  • JAFZA (Jebel Ali) Offshore Company Formation

UAE Free Zone Company 

These are 0%-taxed and 100% foreign–owned limited liability companies. They are onshore UAE tax resident companies with the ability to also conduct business inside the UAE to a large extent as well as internationally. They are the preferred company type by international clients as it is considered a ‘proper’ UAE local company and it provides Residence Visas for the client and his family in the UAE. The offices of such companies can only be in designated Free Zone Areas. This type is internationally respected and recognised as a proper UAE local company.

These are local onshore tax-resident entities. They are not ‘under attack’ by the international community (OECD) as they possess adequate local substance and are widely recognised and acceptable. Bank account opening procedures for these type of companies are – naturally – simpler, quicker and with light ‘due diligence’ obstacles. After all the company is local and the owner is also a local resident (UAE resident foreign national with ‘Emirates ID’ and residence VISA as well as present in the UAE at least twice a year. The future: The Free Zone company will survive indefinitely as it is a truly local establishment with economic substance and resident owner in a big – economically – country / market in a world-class regional hub with real and advanced infrastructure where thousands of REAL and resident companies are operating (and not situated a small island where no such infrastructure and market size exists).

Popular types:

  • RAK Free Zone Company Formation – RAKEZ
  • Rak Free Trade Zone Company Formation – RAK FTZ
  • DMCC Free Zone Company Formation
  • Dubai Airport Free Zone Company Formation – DAFZA
  • DIFC Free Zone Company Formation
  • Jebel Ali Free Zone Company Formation – JAFZA

Local Company – Business Formation

Same as the Free Zone Companies in all respects except that these companies allow only a 49% participation by foreigners and need a local individual as a sponsor and holder of the remaining 51% shareholding (although well-established structuring and side-agreements safeguard the foreigner’s 100% control). Suitable if a physical presence in all areas of Dubai (e.g. a store in Dubai Mall) is required which cannot be achieved with a free zone company.

Popular Types available:

  • Dubai Commercial License
  • Dubai Professional License
  • Dubai Representative Office
  • Dubai Branch

Step 3 – Decide Which Ownership Structure is Appropriate For Your UAE Company Formation

[100% Ownership OR a Local Sponsor-Partner (51%)  OR 100% Ownership with a Local Commercial / Service Agent]

For 100% foreign ownership you can choose between an onshore local tax resident UAE Free Zone Company set up in Dubai, RAK or in any one of UAE’s 45 Free Zone Areas OR a non-tax resident Offshore Company or RAK ICC Company (activities of which are only allowed overseas offered in RAK / Ras-Al-Khaimah, Dubai and Ajman).

Note here that in Dubai Free Zone Companies with a standard services activity will generally be allowed to transact in the Dubai and RAK local market. If you need to operate locally via an LLC and a 51% local shareholder / local sponsor or a local commercial or service agent, you need a license from the Department of Economic Development (DED).

Step 4 – Decide the Appropriate Legal Form of Your UAE Business for Your UAE Company Formation

Depending on your preferred location, type of business, license, ownership mod and the choice between Offshore, Free Zone or LLC Company there are separate and case-specific rules and procedures for setting up your legal entity in Dubai, RAK or any other UAE Emirate. Rules and approvals / procedures will depend also on whether a standard or a special activity (e.g. banking, law consulting, real estate, medical etc.) is chosen.

The DED regulates LLC Company and Other Local Type of Companies / Entities. Each Free Zone and Offshore Authority Regulates Separately each Free Zone or Offshore Company Type. Also different Emirates have slightly different rules and practices. This is one area where we can help you make sense of it all and make the right choice.

Legal Form for Offshore Companies

  • Limited Company – Ltd.

Legal Form for Free Zone Companies

  • Free Zone LLC (FZ-LLC)
  • Free Zone Establishment – one owner (FZE)
  • Branch of Foreign Company or Other Free Zone Company in the UAE.

Legal Form for Local Companies

  • Sole proprietor – Service Agent
  • One-Person-Company (100% UAE)
  • Civil Company (professional partnerships) – Professional Service Agent
  • LLC – Limited Liability Company (Local Sponsor 51%)
  • Partnership
  • Branch of Foreign Company
  • Representative Office
  • Branch of Dubai-based Company
  • Branch of a UAE-based Company
  • Branch of a GCC-based Company
  • Branch of a Free Zone – based Company (Service Agent)
  • SME
  • Intelaq (100% UAE).

Step 5 – Decide Your UAE Company Trade Name

Your trade name is a very important for the Company Formation. The company name should ideally indicate the nature of business, unless it is a branch of another company. All the rules regarding trade names are regulated by the DED or the Free Zone and Offshore Authorities.

Step 6 – Decide On UAE Company Share Capital and Managers

Minimum share capital is stated in the MOA of the company. In standard cases, you do not need to pay minimum capital at the time of setting up. Decide on the level / amount of share capital. Decide on the person or persons that will manage your Company. Decide who the shareholders will be and at what percentage shareholding each.

Step 7 – Decide Between Banks to Open a UAE Company Bank Account

The UAE offers wide choice of Banks and Financial Institutions as well as multi-currency banking products to suit every need.

Step 8 – Decide on UAE Company Premises, Establishment Matters, Logistics and Staffing

The UAE offers wide choice of Real Estate and Business Facility Options as well as a wide and diverse employment pool to suit every need and Business Type (Local, Offshore or Free Zone), corporate or personal. The UAE needs no introductions in this area.
