Are you considering setting up a Mainland company in Dubai?

Opening a Mainland business in the UAE requires a local sponsor and for some investors, this can present a challenge to starting up a company. The Gulf legislation only allows partial ownership to foreign businesspeople where 51% of the share goes to the local sponsor and 49% to the Expat.

It is important for a foreign investor to learn about the different types of sponsorship available and the rules, implications and advantages for each.

What Sponsorship options are available to Expats?

Why is Corporate Sponsorship such a good option for Expats?

Quite simply, the sponsorship is treated at arm’s length, providing an Expat investor with greater peace of mind.  Essentially, a company will sponsor the business rather an individual. This is applicable if you are setting up a Limited Liability Company, Trading Company or a Manufacturing Company.
