Business Setup in Dubai

Dubai is one of the most developed emirates in the UAE. It is also the most sought-after destination for setting up a business because of the availability of infrastructural facilities, ease of doing business, and tax benefits. When it comes to business setup in the UAE, you have the option of establishing a company on the mainland or in a free zone. Setting up a new business is a little cumbersome as legal and regulatory compliance have to be met and several documents have to be submitted.

Setting Up a Business in Dubai

When setting up a business in the UAE, the first and foremost aspect you have to decide is whether you want to establish your business on the mainland or in a free zone. Furthermore, it is a good idea to work with a UAE-based business setup company in Dubai as it is important to have an in-depth understanding of the legal and company setup processes. This greatly reduces the stress involved in starting a business in the UAE.

Mainland Company Setup

If you choose to establish a company on the mainland, you will need a license from the Department of Economic Development (DED).
