Legal structure 


One of the most important aspects of doing business in the UAE is the legal structure. Foreign companies are allowed to establish one of these legal entities:

  • Limited liability company
  • Branch
  • Representative office
  • Sole establishment
  • Civil company

Although rules and regulations for establishing a foreign company are generally similar in all the seven emirates of the UAE, the incorporation process can vary slightly according to the business activity and the area in which your company is established – whether mainland or free zone.

Our specialists can guide you to find the most suitable solution and make your incorporation process straightforward.
