The Department of Economic Development (DED) requires all mainland (onshore) UAE legal entities to be licensed and managed by the UAE Commercial Companies Law (CCL). The key benefit for international investors establishing a business in the mainland UAE is that, unlike the Free Zones, there are no territorial restrictions on business activity or office/premises placement. A mainland firm can trade anywhere in the UAE or the wider Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, including all Freezones, and has a much broader selection of real estate possibilities to choose from.
Entrepreneurs and organizations in the UAE can form Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), which are one of the most frequent types of commercial enterprises. LLCs are commonly favored by entrepreneurs and organizations who wish to penetrate the UAE market and create a stable footing in the Middle East area due to their rapid and easy setup process and a large range of available business incentives.
Limited Liability Companies must have at least one or more local sponsors or Emirati partners, according to UAE commercial legislation. This indicates that the local partner/sponsor(s) must own at least 51 percent of the LLC's shares. Following the publication of UAE Federal Law No. 19 of 2018 on Foreign Direct Investment, the UAE Cabinet revealed the positive list of operations that will be covered by the FDI Law, which will allow 100 percent foreign ownership or greater than 49 percent foreign ownership. Thus, in today's blog we will focus on the steps and other related details which you should be aware of, if you want to start your own Limited Liability Company in Dubai.
