To open a company in the UAE, you need to determine the format of the company you would like to open. It is advisable to plan in advance what type of business you would like to start in the UAE, what products and services you will offer to the market.

Starting a business in the UAE begins with choosing a market, niche and analyzing competitors and the demand for products and services. If you have already done market research and understand its market size, demand for products and services, market trends, as well as Unique Selling Proposition, it’s the right time to start dealing with the issue of registering a company in the UAE.

In order to make this process as fast and comfortable as possible, we recommend that you answer the following questions in advance, which will be required to select the format of the future company:

  1. What sphere do you plan to open a business in
  2. What services or products you are going to provide or deliver
  3. Are you going to work inside or outside of the UAE or both ways
  4. Who are your potential clients and partners
  5. Who are your main competitors, what advantages do you have
  6. Is your business plan ready
  7. How many employees will you need to implement the business
  8. What kind of employees (whether you plan to attract them from the local market or “bring” with you) will you need
  9. How many work visas will you need to be opened in the company
  10. Will any of the employees need additional licensing in Dubai
  11. Do you need an office or can you work remotely, and what other premises you may need to work – showroom, warehouse, etc.
  12. Do you require visas for your family (if they plan to live in the UAE with you on a long-term basis)

What type of UAE companies can I start?

Free zone companies can operate within a limited geographical region and the license is issued by particular free zone authority. Offshore businesses in UAE allow your company to trade outside UAE as well as take efforts to safeguard your wealth and assets. Offshore companies get a certificate of incorporation and not a trade license. All types of companies can be started in UAE and more than thousand activities are allowed by the Economic department.

You get an MOA from the company and also, submit the lease contract to the licensing authority. Also, find a local partner and rented office space to start your business.

Accurate Middle East offer few inclusive and affordable packages according to your business setup requirements.

What kind of company structure should I choose?

This depends on your needs, as well as the needs of your business. You could set up your company as a Sole Establishment (this is the same as a Sole Proprietorship), as a Limited Liability Partnership, a Limited Liability Company, a Private Limited Company, or a Professional Services Company.

You also have the option of setting up your company on the mainland, in a free zone (only limited liability company structures are permitted here), or offshore.

Do I need to rent an office for my business?

A physical presence is mandatory for companies established on the mainland and in free zones. However, an offshore company is not permitted to lease office space in the UAE.

The good news is that there is affordable office space for everyone. If you want to keep your initial costs down, you could look at renting an office or any number of dedicated desks in a co-working space on the mainland. These are all fully furnished and ready to move in. In a free zone, you need to rent at least a desk in a shared office space. The added advantage is the some free zones allow you rent a flexi-desk, that is a desk you will be using for say, ten hours in a week. You still get your dedicated PO Box so that you have a unique address.
