Business Setup
Is Just The Beginning

Easy Steps
To Start Your Business


One-to-one Consultation with Business Setup Advisor

Arrange a face-to-face meeting or a zoom call with one of our advisors – make sure you have a basic idea about your business activity, number of shareholders, your target customers, office space requirements etc. Even if unsure, our team will help you understand each section in depth.


Selecting the Right Jurisdiction

We will help you choose a jurisdiction for your company, depending on your needs and target market.  Start in mainland UAE for full flexibility on how you conduct business, go with a free zone if you’re specialising in an industry or want a cost-effective package, or do an offshore setup to enjoy the UAE’s robust business landscape from another country.


Applying for Trade License

Prepare all your registration documents, including your Application Form, Memorandum of Association, Certificate of Incorporation, Bank and Residency Statements, and more. Requirements differ depending on the license type and jurisdiction, so our team will gladly assist you throughout the process.


Initiating Visa and Emirates ID Applications

Before relocating to the UAE, you’ll have to apply for a visa for yourself, your employees, and your dependents, if needed. The number of visas that you can apply for, as well as whether or not you can obtain visas for your staff and dependents, will rely on the jurisdiction you’ve chosen for your business.


Opening a Corporate Bank Account

A corporate bank account is necessary for you to conduct business in the UAE. There are several national, international, and digital banks that you can choose from, depending on your financial requirements. Our team of experts will help you determine the best bank for your needs, and prepare the necessary requirements for submission to the bank.
