Opening LLC, bank accounts, and residence visas in UAE! Increase the profit of your business by 50%!
To conduct trade or provide certain services on the territory of the United Arab Emirates, to rent an office or other commercial premises, or to obtain a resident visa in the UAE it is necessary to register an onshore company. It is possible to do this in two ways: in one of the Free Trade Zones or else outside FTZ.
The second option is rarely used and is only required when opening a firm that provides services to the local UAE market (hotel, restaurant, beauty salon, etc.). The main feature of an onshore company registered outside FTZ is partial ownership of a foreign entity: at least 51 % shall belong to a citizen of the United Arab Emirates. And as a rule an additional agreement is signed with him that actually he does not own shares of such company.
The most optimal solution for business is the company in Free Trade Zone. At this point there are over 35 Free Trade Zones in the UAE. Some of them do not have strict restrictions on the type of activity and allow registering almost any company. Other FTZ are more specialized, such as, for example, Dubai Media City, which hosts mostly media companies.
Onshore companies have to meet a series of requirements of the state government. First, it is necessary to obtain a license to conduct certain activities, and secondly it is necessary to have a real office. In practice such office can be just a desk leased by the free zone authority. Another requirement is that business should be conducted only within the FEZ or outside it, but not directly in the UAE.
If the company would do the business directly inside the country, it would require a local company to act as an agent for it.

“As our core business is located in Hong Kong we set up the UAE onshore company for some specific business requirements only. The company has managed to arrange all incorporation procedures in a way that we could handle them within one visit only, considering the telecommunication licensing is usually quite a lengthy process requiring a number of visits. Splendid job! ”
