FAQs Business Incorporation & Banking Support Services

Business incorporation services can incorporate an offshore company without your physical presence. Although your presence is not initially required for incorporation in onshore countries and free zones, it will be necessary later. You will need to sign official incorporation documents with the UAE notary public. A power of attorney authenticated by an overseas UAE consulate or embassy can however help finish the process of company formation in the UAE without your presence.
Attestation from the appropriate UAE consulate or embassy in the country of document origin is necessary. This is particularly important when incorporation is done under business setup services. The next step is to have the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs authenticate these documents. After this, they can be used in legal proceedings.

You might need a sponsor for certain incorporation structures. You can seek Fortius Consulting which provides business incorporation services, in such instances. Local sponsors help businesses like yours in many ways. A sponsor's position and experience might be invaluable to a UAE-based company in a variety of contexts. Our in-depth understanding of the field and the area allows us to provide you with information customized to your requirements.

Some fields and geographical regions have specialized licensing requirements due to the nature of the work done there. You can consult with our business setup consultants offering business setup services to double-check the details.

Depending on the type of free zone entity being formed, the incorporation procedure done by a business setup consultant might take anywhere from five business days to six weeks. The first step is to file for a trademark. The next step is to obtain the necessary paperwork for your specific registration type and the licensing body.

Except for petroleum corporations and financial institutions, Dubai has no personal or corporate tax. Hence, people will owe the city relatively little in taxes. In case of any doubt, you can take the help of reliable business setup services like Fortius.

A corporation can be set up in a free zone, on the UAE mainland, or offshore. Establishing a business in the mainland UAE requires a local sponsor and a DED license. Companies based in a free zone can only conduct business within the boundaries outlined by that zone's governing body. You can set up an offshore company in the United Arab Emirates to conduct business outside the country. This will enable you to better protect your assets with business setup services. A certificate of incorporation, unlike a business license, is issued to offshore businesses. The Economic Department of the United Arab Emirates permits over a thousand different types of businesses to operate.

Incorporation in the UAE does necessitate an office. Bringing your company's headquarters to the United Arab Emirates can be done in a variety of ways, depending on your budget. In either case, Fortius business consulting services are here to advise you on where to set up your office.

Business license types in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), including Dubai, cater to different activities. The Commercial License suits trading enterprises, encompassing retail, wholesale, and import-export operations. Industrial Licenses are for manufacturers, while Professional Licenses apply to qualified individuals offering consultancy or medical care. Tourism Licenses are necessary for travel agencies and hotels, while Freelancer Licenses suit independent service providers. E-commerce, media, real estate, healthcare, education, logistics, event management, IT, and software licenses are available for specific sectors. Trading Licenses are like Commercial Licenses, while Food and Beverage Licenses pertain to the culinary industry. Seek guidance from legal experts for accurate, current information when pursuing a business license in Dubai.

Yes. Dubai stands as a prominent open trading hub due to its strategic location, modern infrastructure, and favorable business regulations. With free trade zones offering 100% foreign ownership and tax exemptions, Dubai attracts global investors. Jebel Ali Port, a major player in international trade, and business centers like Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai International Financial Centre further enhance its reputation. This environment positions Dubai as an attractive destination for international trade and business activities.
