A Dubai Limited Liability Company (LLC) or sole establishment (one single owner) allows you to do local trade and services. It is recommended for companies who want to pursue trading business within the UAE and internationally.
Main Features of LLC
Local & International Trade allowed
Office premises required
100% shareholding is allowed.
A Dubai limited liability company (LLC) is an ideal vehicle to use for entrepreneurs doing business within Dubai, the U.A.E. and internationally. With Dubai Company, you still can own only 100% of the equity, provided the company’s activity is a professional one and not a commercial activity.
A Dubai Company can be formed with a minimum of two and a maximum of 50 persons whose liability is limited to their shares in the company’s capital. Companies with expatriate partners typically opt for this form of company.
A local UAE national still needs to be appointed a local agent of the company but has no shareholder or jurisdiction over the company whatsoever. He will collect a fixed fee to perform a statutory position within the constitution of the company.
A local company must appoint a manager as well. A manager must be a qualified individual for the professional license chosen. In our case a management consulting company has to appoint someone with a Business Bachelor’s degree. The manager also needs to have 5 years relevant experience. In 2018 the Department of Economic Development introduced examinations for all managers being appointed into a Dubai License. The Exam costs about 600 USD to sit and of course relevant preparation is required.
