Business Setup in Dubai

set up company in DubaiDubai is the Middle East’s one of the most important business hubs and a gateway to whole MENA region for major corporate players from around the world. It is located in the United Arab Emirates’ north-eastern region. Dubai is already one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. The biggest contributors to its GDP are real estate, tourism, trade, and financial services. Despite the fact that oil exports created the groundwork for the UAE economy, oil and gas exports presently account for less than 5% of the country’s GDP. Dubai has established itself as the UAE’s most significant trading center.

It is primarily owing to excellent business locations and an easygoing environment. Dubai provides entrepreneurs with convenient business conditions, asset protection, limited liability, complete privacy, and substantial tax exemptions. Furthermore, due to its unique liberalization policies, Dubai offers firms a remarkable growth trajectory. Dubai is a diverse market in one of the world’s most prosperous regions. It operates in an open market with no hidden trade barriers, regulations, or quotas.

The fact that Dubai is easily accessible by air and water is perhaps its best feature. Currently, Dubai is home to about 90 airlines and 170 shipping lines.

Why? – Business Opportunities in Dubai

  • Investing in Dubai as a foreign investor from other part of the world can appear to be a difficult task. However, you should be aware that establishing and operating a new business in Dubai can be quite rewarding. The fast-expanding economy in Dubai may present you with excellent investment options. If you are a foreigner looking to start a new business in Dubai, there are a number of advantages that you will receive. But, before we get into the perks, let’s look at some of the reasons why foreigners should invest in Dubai.
  • Foreign investors who wish to launch a new firm in Dubai will undoubtedly face certain obstacles. However, there are many more reasons why it is a wonderful place to start a business. Corporate tax, VAT, capital gains tax, withholding tax, and import/export tax are not required to be paid by companies incorporated in Dubai.
  • The UAE has signed 66 international double tax treaties with nations such as China, the United States, and many in the European Union. When it comes to obtaining local cash, foreigners in Dubai find it easy because the city has few exchange rules.

Where to set up a business in Dubai?

Another important decision to make when starting a business is where to locate it. There are a couple of things to think about:

  • You gain complete control over your business.
  • You may be eligible for tax advantages.
  • The location is convenient as well as cost-effective.

The location is ideal for your company’s strategic objectives.

Types of Company Setup in Dubai

The business locations in Dubai are categorized in two major zones:

  • Free Zone Company Setup
  • Dubai Mainland Company Setup

Setting up a Company in Dubai Free Zones

Certain places in Dubai have been classified as free zones. These are the excellent locations for expat entrepreneurs to start up shop. Based on the specific area of operation, the free zones are categorized into numerous types.

The free zone provides two primary advantages: ownership and taxation. In urban marketplaces, some businesses, particularly those in the service industry, perform better. Restaurants, retail businesses, and other such establishments are common examples. Some trade zone spaces may be more expensive than those available for rent in the city market.

You want to take advantage of the UAE’s free zones, regardless of your industry, don’t you? However, given that each free zone has its unique set of rules, you may find it difficult to meet all of the requirements. This will never be an issue with us!

Profound Business Services will assist you in determining the appropriate business structure so that you can enjoy 100 percent ownership, significant tax benefits, and hassle-free capital repatriation. We will apply for a proper operating license on your behalf and submit all necessary paperwork to the authorities. Furthermore, we will handle all pre-approvals for you, so you won’t have to do anything.

In the United Arab Emirates, there are around 45 free zones. These are delineated based on the specific area/sector of operation:

  • Academics
  • Aviation
  • Investment
  • Media
  • Information technology (ICT)
  • Logistics
  • Automotive Technology
  • Energy


  • 100% foreign ownership
  • 100% repatriation of capital and profits
  • Exemptions from corporate and personal income taxes of 100 percent
  • Import and export duties are exempted (but you cannot import into mainland UAE)

Trading in a Free Zone has a number of extra advantages. Many Free Zones hold monthly training and networking events that are normally open to the public. Most offer privately rented conference spaces for a price, and many encourage members to exchange business prospects within the Free Zone.

100% ownership

Setting up a Company in Mainland Dubai

A mainland license, also known as an onshore license, allows people to conduct business both within the UAE and internationally without restrictions. In the UAE, the Department of Economic Development (DED) is in charge of issuing these permits.

A local sponsor is no longer required to obtain a Dubai mainland license as of June 2021. Instead, international investors can now create a business on the mainland with 100% ownership. According to Dubai Economy, the list of 100 percent foreign ownership includes over 1,000 commercial and industrial activities.

These measures are expected to attract foreign direct investment into the country’s most important economic sectors and to strengthen entrepreneurship, including a 10-year investor visa and citizenship for talented individuals. The steps are being implemented in order to make the UAE a more attractive investment location.


      • Renting commercial premises in any location is possible
      • Capacity to engage in a variety of commercial operations
      • It is possible to trade anywhere in the UAE as well as worldwide
      • The ability to simply open a corporate bank account
      • The ability to bid on government projects gives you an advantage
      • Processing of job visas is simple
      • There are no currency restrictions
      • Foreign ownership is 100 percent
