Business Setup
Is Just The Beginning

Easy Steps
To Start Your Business in the UAE

1

Free Consultation with Business Setup Advisor

Arrange a face-to-face meeting or a Zoom call with one of our advisors. We recommend having a basic understanding of your business activity, the number of shareholders, your target customers, and office space requirements. Even if you need assistance, our team is ready to support you in finalizing your business plan.

2

Selecting the Right Jurisdiction

We will assist you in selecting the right jurisdiction for your company, tailored to your unique needs and target market. You can establish your business in the UAE Mainland for maximum operational flexibility, leverage the benefits of a Free Zone setup if you specialize in a specific industry or seek cost-effective solutions, or consider an offshore setup to take advantage of the UAE’s thriving business environment from anywhere in the world.

3

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.

4

Initiating Visa and Emirates ID Applications

Before relocating to the UAE, it is essential to apply for the necessary visas for yourself, your employees, and any dependents, if required. The specific visa options and the availability of visas for your staff and dependents will depend on the jurisdiction you have selected for your business. Our team will guide you through the visa application process and provide relevant information and support to ensure a smooth and successful transition to the UAE.

5

Opening a Corporate Bank Account

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