Europe Emirates Group can help you start your business in Dubai Mainland
A Limited Liability Company (LLC) offers an alternative to the free zone model, and is ideal for companies that intend to serve a client base in the UAE itself, or that plan to tender for government contracts.
As an onshore entity, 51 percent or more of the company’s equity must be owned by a UAE National.
In some cases, certain industries are able to operate with 100 percent foreign ownership and UAE clients. However, a UAE National must be a business partner and available to liaise with relevant local government authorities.
Another option is to operate via an industry-specific free zone that permits local trading. For example, the Dubai Knowledge Village free zone allows human resources companies to work with clients outside of the free zone jurisdiction while retaining full tax exemption.
