Business setup in Dubai Mainland

The United Arab Emirates ranks 16th in the world when it comes to ease of doing business, according to data compiled by the World Bank. This is the highest in the entire Middle East- North Africa region. The United Arab Emirates has also been rated as one of the top five competitive economies in the world, according to the IMD World Competitiveness
Rankings. Dubai, in particular, offers a lot of opportunities for anyone intending to set up a
business.

And it is not hard to see why. Dubai has a population of 3.33 million, making it the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates. This represents a major market for anyone in
the B2C space. Not to mention that there are more than 400,000 companies spread across different industry verticals in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which means a company in Dubai stands to do a lot of business even if it were in the B2B space. The economy of Dubai has been estimated to be worth $102.67 billion.

How to Register a Company in Dubai Mainland

The first step is to zero in on a name for your company for Dubai mainland business setup. Your company’s name – also referred to as your trade name – cannot begin with terms with ‘Global or ‘International’. The names of countries are not permitted anywhere in your trade name. However, nationalities and names of geographical regions may be included. First names are allowed as long as it is the first name of one of the shareholders.

The next step involves zeroing in on the type of company yours will be. This is where the advice of a company formation expert can come in handy. If all the shareholders were equal shareholders, you could register it as a Limited Liability Company and limit your financial liability in case things go south. If there are going to be minority shareholders and majority shareholders, you could register it as a Private Joint Stock Company. If you intend to offer your shares for sale later on, then Public Joint Stock Company it is.

If this is the case, it is recommended that the Branch Office have the same name as that of the parent company. For mainland company setup in Dubai, an experienced business setup consultant can run a search to see if the same name is available for registration.
