Services in Mainland Business Formation Packages Explained

In case you are confused about any of the services we are providing in our packages. Here is a brief explanation about each of those packages:

Local Sponsors

Previously, any foreigners looking to start a business in Dubai mainland needed a local sponsor to share ownership. Foreigners could only own 49% of business on the mainland. However, now foreigners can own 100% of a business on the mainland without a local sponsor. But if you need additional support, you can still choose to have a local sponsor.

PRO services

In the UAE, you need the help of a Public Relations Officer, also known as a Government Liaison Officer. These PRO services  include processing government and legal paperwork. These documents are crucial and that is why a specialized Government Liaison Officer is required.

Trade License

The most lengthy and technical process of setting up a new business in the UAE is obtaining the trade license. However, you do not need to worry about all the steps involved in the trade license registration process since we will be handling it for you.

Company Stamp

It is legally mandatory for all businesses to have a company stamp in the UAE. We will help you produce this company stamp for you. The stamp will contain your company’s logo and the company’s name as well.

Office Space

A tenancy contract and the EJARI are required to receive the trade license approval from the Department of Economic Development in Dubai. We will provide these documents for you, while you can freely choose the office accommodation that will best suit your needs.

Dubai Mainland Company Formation Benefits

There is a lot of debate about which is better between the free zones and the mainland. The truth is it depends on the type of business you are planning to start in the UAE. While some businesses benefit from the mainland more, others will benefit from the free zones. Here are the benefits of a mainland company formation:

  • 100% exemption from corporate taxes.

Mainland Company Setup Dubai Cost

When comparing this to the free zones in the UAE, the main difference is that the free zones do not allow business activities to be easily conducted outside the respective free zone. You can perform a few activities outside the free zones through the help of service agents, who take a flat fee or part of your earnings. On the other hand, a mainland company can perform its business activities anywhere in the UAE without restrictions.
