What is the difference between a Branch and a Subsidiary?

Some of the most common types of company structures in the UAE are subsidiaries and branch offices. A Branch is essentially an extension of your parent company, with the same ownership structure and the same business activity. Whereas a Subsidiary is a company with a corporate owner, however with an activity that differs from that of its parent company. These types of companies can have both Free Zone licenses or Mainland Licenses in the UAE.
