Business-Setup/ Company Formation

If you have decided to start a business in Dubai, want to work here and live here temporarily or permanently, the topic “Business Set up” is the first and right step for you.

Currently the following types of companies can be established in Dubai:


This company is incorporated in the Emirates Free Zones – each Free Zone has its own regulations and regulatory authority, which also issues the trading licences. It is recommended to establish such a company if you want to trade only within the free zone and outside the Emirates.


3. MAINLAND COMPANY (comparable with the German GmbH)

The Mainland Company can be compared to our limited liability company. You can trade with this company both inside the UAE and outside the UAE.

We will be happy to discuss the differences between the company structures with you and find the optimal variant for your company. If you wish, we can take care of the entire incorporation process for you – subsequently, the application for a visa is also possible without any problems. The company formation takes a few days – together with the visa application the whole process takes 2-3 weeks.
