The process of an incorporation

1. Incorporation

The first and most important step is establishing your company. As we are locally based in Dubai, your presence is not usually necessary for this. Depending on the legal form, it takes 3-5 days to receive the official trade license.

2. Visa/Emirates ID

Once the trade license has been issued, the next step is to apply for your so-called investor visa. A short medical check must be completed for this. At the same time, the Emirates ID is also applied for, which is equivalent to a national identity card here.

3. Open Bankaccount

After the incorporation and receipt of your Emirates ID, you can now open an account. Of course, we will support you in opening the account to ensure a smooth process. Basically, you only need to sign, while we take care of the rest!

Frequently asked questions


How long does it take to set up a company in Dubai?

Basically, you should plan on 3-5 days for setting up a company. If a visa is also required, a visit to Dubai by the applicant is indispensable. Depending on the type of company, a stay of approx. 7 days is then necessary. Of which you will only need one day. The authorities need the rest of the time to issue the documents. Meanwhile, you can spend a few sunny days in Dubai while we take care of the rest.

Do I have to visit the country to set up a company?

Whether a visit to Dubai is necessary depends entirely on the type of company and whether you have been to the UAE before. In the case of a foundation in a free zone, no entry is necessary. We take care of the whole thing for you!

Do I necessarily need a visa for setting up a company in Dubai?

Whether you need a visa depends on the purpose of your company. For example, if you plan to open a bank account for your company in the future, applying for a visa and Emirates ID is essential. However, you can also set up your company without applying for a visa.

What is an Emirates ID

An Emirates ID is a national identity card for citizens and foreign residents of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is equivalent to the identity card of your country. It is therefore an electronic card that contains unique identification features and information about the holder. The Emirates ID serves as an important proof of citizenship and residency status and is required in many situations, including banking, business formation, government affairs and more.

What is the difference between Freezone and Mainland?

The difference between mainland and freezone companies in the UAE is that mainland companies operate under the jurisdiction of federal law and must follow domestic business practices, while freezone companies operate in specially created economic zones and have their own rules and regulations. We will be happy to advise you on
which form of company makes the most sense for you.

Important: A mainland company will be subject to 9% VAT from June 2023. Freezones offer a tax rate of 0%.

Do I need an office for my company in Dubai?

Whether you need an office depends first of all on your own needs, of course. As a rule of thumb, however, no office is necessary at first. However, there are freezones that absolutely require one. Furthermore, it can also be that banks require an office. However, there are ways around this. We will be happy to advise you on this.

Will my wife/child(ren) also get a visa if I start a company in Dubai?

Yes, it is possible for your loved ones to also receive a visa. This process is called “sponsorship”. Visa sponsorship of family members in Dubai refers to the process whereby an employee or a company takes responsibility for their spouse, children, or parents to enable them to obtain a valid residence permit in the UAE. This requires, for example, the marriage/birth certificate to be authenticated with various authorities in the home country.

Are there taxes in Dubai?

There are no personal income or capital gains taxes in Dubai.
However, there are specific taxes for particular industries and activities, such as hotel accommodation taxes, tobacco taxes, and other special taxes on goods. There is also a Value Added Tax (VAT) of 5% (from June 2023 – 9%) levied on certain goods and services above a turnover of approximately USD100,000.

Do I need to be resident in Dubai to set up a company?

No. Residency in the UAE is not necessary to incorporate a company, but it would make sense from a tax perspective. However, you can be resident in another country while your
company is based in the UAE.
