Company Formation

Entrepreneurs who wanting to start a business in the UAE can choose to register their company in mainland (onshore), a free zone (self-regulated area within an emirate), or offshore.

Working with us ensures you have a comprehensive understanding of your options before choosing where and how to establish your company’s presence in the UAE.



A mainland company is a legal entity that can operate inside and outside the country without any restriction.

The main benefits of establishing a mainland company include:

  • The freedom to choose premises in any area of Dubai
  • The ability to conduct a wide range of business activities
  • The freedom to trade anywhere in the UAE or outside the country

According to UAE company law, a mainland company requires a local partner or a local service agent.

Advantages of Setting Up a Business in a UAE Free Zone

  • The main advantage offered by the UAE free zones is that foreign investors can retain 100% ownership of their businesses without the need for a local partner.
  • Outside of free zones, non-UAE residents are not allowed a majority stake in the business if that business requires a commercial or industrial license and must therefore set up with a local partner who takes minimum ownership of 51%.
  • Other financial incentives of the UAE free zones include a 0% corporate and income tax rate, no customs duties levied on imports and exports, and the option to repatriate 100% of the profits from the business.
  • Free zones are sector specific. Another factor that can present fantastic opportunities to free zone companies is that many of the UAE free zones are sector specific. This gives its entrepreneurs ready access to a hub of knowledge and expertise from others within their field.
