Assistance from local consultancy company a must?


Is the assistance from local consultancy companies really required in order to set up a company in the UAE?

Yes it’s true, the UAE is a very appealing environment for doing business. Even though Arabic is the official language, English is widely spoken, rules and regulations are quite clear so one would think that setting up a business in the UAE is a straightforward process. Well…it is somewhat…but there are many things to consider in order to ensure that your international business venture is sustainable. Even though Dubai has no corporate or income tax, in some cases it might be better to register your company in a Free Zone (100% ownership), while in other situations it would be much better to setup a UAE mainland company (49% ownership). Why this distinction? What are the advantages and disadvantages of these structures? So many aspects need to be considered in order for your business to obtain the best benefits from a UAE business structure. Rules and regulations vary from Emirate to Emirate, and changes are made continuously. That’s why it is important to hire an experienced business consultancy provider like The Watermill Consultants…not only to ensure a hassle free setup, but also to ensure that you’re legal and fiscal structure is optimal which will increase your profits and success!
