    Steps to start a business in Dubai

    • Determine the Type of Business
    • Determine the business activities
    • Clarity on Ownership (need a local license or can get 100 per cent ownership
    • Get a clear legal structure of your business (based on location and type)
    • Secure a Trade Name
    • Create a Memorandum of Association

    • Acquire a Trade License and other Approvals

    1. Determine the Type of Business

    Depending on the type of business, take your pick from –

    • Sole Proprietorship
    • General Partnership
    • Partnership-en-Commendams
    • Limited Liability Company
    • Joint Venture Company
    • Public Shareholding Company
    • Private Shareholding Company
    • Professional Company
    1. Determine the business activities

    Based on your business goals, you will be required to determine a business activity, which will further help you in deciding the business jurisdiction you choose.

    1. Clarity on Ownership

    As a foreign national, you will have two alternatives –

    • Take 100% ownership of the business and operate in one of the 45 Free Zones in UAE
    • Obtain a Local Licence from the Department of Economic Development (DED) and operate locally. Please keep in mind that the DED license often entails certain restrictions on ownership share for foreign nationals, and hence you may have to include a native UAE sponsor or a partner for this licence.
    1. Get a clear legal structure of your business

    On the basis of the location of your business, as well as its type you can choose to create a standalone company or open your business as a branch of the parent company. Of course, you must understand that each free zone comes with its own restrictions, which would need due diligence pertaining to the company structure.

    1. Secure a Trade Name

    You will be required to choose a trading name that is not in use by any other enterprise and submit the same along with a registration application to the DED (Department of Economic Development).

    1. Create a Memorandum of Association

    Your MoA draft will carry the details of the shareholders as well as of your company, complete with minimum share capital. You will be required to get it notarized in the DED.

    1. Acquire a Trade License and other Approvals

    This is by far the most uphill task, considering the sheer number of documents you ought to submit. Then again, you will be required to get the relevant approvals from the analogous Ministry/Department. This is where having an expert business setup company in Dubai such as ours by your side can prove to be of immense help. After all, documentation and dealing with the company register in a foreign land is best handled by someone who knows the task inside out!

    1. Register with Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry

    It is mandatory for all commercial and industrial businesses, except small trading outfits or professionals, in Dubai to get registered with the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI). In order to register, you will be required to complete and submit application form for membership, and pay the stipulated annual fee. After formal registration, you will then be entitled to import and export goods in Dubai.
