Incorporation or Setting Up of Companies

Looking to set up your business in Dubai? Our expertise in company incorporations covers a complete range of services for International Companies and Individuals looking to establish their business in Dubai.

Whether it’s an LLC, 100% foreign-owned company, Civil Company, or a branch of a foreign company, our specialised corporate team can make it happen in the mainland or any free zone across the UAE. Need an Offshore Company? We’re registered offshore agents for the Jebel Ali Free Zone, ensuring a swift registration process.

Before establishing a company in the UAE, we recommend building an outline about the type of entity you plan to build and the business activities this will include. By doing so, you will have a clearer understanding of whether to set your business up in a free zone or on the mainland.

The proposed officers of the company, managers and directors, must be appointed during company set up. This is essential to outline clear liabilities, responsibilities and obligations to mitigate future risk. We advise reaching out to a legal representative to obtain sound advice on this matter.

The internet can be a valuable resource for information regarding company set up in the UAE. However, this can be both overwhelming, misleading and inaccurate. To guarantee your business thrives from the get go, seek accurate legal advice with our qualified and experienced consultants.

Restructuring of Existing Companies

From share transfers, changing officers, selling a part of the business, merging with another, or changing the management team, our corporate team can handle the entire process – whether it’s drafting the transaction documents or obtaining regulatory approvals and notary assistance, reach out to us.

Be it group restructuring, cross-border restructuring or restructuring further to an acquisition, it is always important to ensure that the process is smooth, and the management and operations of the group companies is then efficiently dealt with.

When significant changes are made to a company’s structure and mode of operation, it is important to ensure that this corporate action minimizes adverse financial consequences and facilitates the business.

Our experienced team can provide you with options and solutions which are tried and tested in this region. We also work closely with the licensing and regulatory authorities to ensure that our client’s desired result is achieved.

Company Deregistration and Liquidation

Deregistration or cancellation of a license upon liquidation is essential by law. This process is straightforward and quick with our assistance. Working alongside auditors, our corporate team can guide you through the entire process, ensuring a smooth closure.

Unlike in many other jurisdictions, de-registering or closing a company does not mean non-renewal of the license. A company in UAE needs to be liquidated and closed or de-registered (as the case maybe) based on its origin of incorporation (mainland or free zone).

It is the duty of the manager of the company to take all the necessary steps to comply with all the requirements to close a company and with our assistance this can be done in an orderly manner without future implications.
