Setting up a mainland business in UAE is somewhat tougher than the other two company formation types. The process is a bit longer and requires knowledge about UAE laws and regulations. Therefore, it is highly recommended to approach business setup consultants for mainland company formation.

The efforts required to set up a mainland company are all worth it. There are numerous advantages when you start a mainland company. One of the biggest advantages of a mainland company formation is, it opens the door to the local market. The Department of Economic Development (DED) of the concerned emirate licenses a mainland company.

When you start a mainland company, there is no limitation on the number of visas. Moreover, you can choose the office at one of the prime locations. If you want to flourish in your business, you can create multiple branches. All of this comes with 0% corporate tax and 100% repatriation of the capital and profit. Therefore, it is one of the best options for businesses that want to have a significant presence in the UAE.

Be it an LLC company formation, company registration for a professional firm, or forming a representative office of foreign companies in the mainland, we assist you in each step of the way in your journey of mainland business setup in UAE.

If you choose to set up a business in the UAE mainland, these are the following steps you would need to follow:

  • Choose all your business activities
  • Choose the legal form according to which you want to start your business
  • Select the trade name, which will act as the legal name for your business
  • Send an application to DED for initial approval
  • Select an appropriate office location
  • Prepare all the necessary documents
  • Complete all the approvals and permits
  • Obtain the business license
  • Make registration with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Sponsorship Services

For a company established in the mainland UAE, appointing a local sponsor is a mandatory requirement. Furthermore, free zone companies intending to work in the local UAE market or bid for government contracts must appoint a local agent with a controlling stake in the company.

In both these conditions, we are there to help you find a credible and reliable local sponsor for your business setup. Our years of presence in UAE have led to a great business network, and therefore, we are capable of suggesting you the best local sponsor for you.

There were so many business types. I wasn’t sure what’s the best option. My friend, who owns a business in Dubai, recommended N R Doshi. I called them, and we scheduled a meeting. Just after one meeting, I got clarity in my thoughts. I decided to let N R Doshi do the business setup for me. Things got easy and quick at the same time.
Business Setup Service 1
I already had two businesses in the UAE. I had a complete idea of starting a new one, but things were different this time. Whatever legal structure I selected, I was not getting the benefit I wanted. Thought to consult with N R Doshi, and their solution was a worthy one. I let them do the company registration for me as I knew that they would be doing it in the best way.
Business Setup Service 3
Even after multiple attempts to get a trade license in UAE, I failed miserably. Then I consulted N R Doshi and Partners; they checked what is wrong and found several errors. I would have never realized that. Believe me, doing it yourself could be tough. So, these guys asked me if I want them to do the entire business setup. I readily agreed. It’s worth it. Few bucks in exchange for no stress and assurance.
