There are 8 types of entities that can be formed in the UAE, which are Limited Liability Company Formation, Offshore company formation, Dubai Free Zone Company Formation, Dubai Mainland company setup, branch and representative offices, professional firms, joint venture companies and shareholding companies.
When it comes to business setup in Dubai there are three choices offered:
The Dubai Economic Department (DED) is responsible for managing these types of business setup, which requires a partnership from UAE nationals, who would own 51% of shares of the company, leaving the foreigner owning 49% of shares, which might have been a reason why it is widely prefer to do a Dubai Free Zone Company Formation.
This option tends to be very popular for startups, as it allows foreigner to own 100% of shares of the companies without requiring any local partnership or assistance whatsoever. The only con of this option is that it does not allow to do any trading activities outside the free zone, otherwise the Dubai Free Zone Company Formation is highly beneficial, especially for start-ups.
This last option can also be quite beneficial, as it allows businesses to be run outside of the local market. This option is usually preferred for universal exchanging.
