Mainland Company Setup Process

Setting up a Mainland Company is governed by a Government Agency called the Department of Economic Development (DED). It involves certain steps as outlined below:

The first thing to decide before you set up a Mainland Company, is the Industry and Business Activity in which you will trade. There are thousands of permitted Business Activities as listed by the Department of Economic Development (DED). Our team of Company Formation Specialists will ensure you to choose the right business activity. We advise you on the most economical and suitable options.

Depending on your Business Activity, you must choose a Company Structure. Popular Company Structures are Sole Establishment and Limited Liability Company (LLC).

Our team of Experts can secure the Company Trade Name availability and registration. If the Company name is not available, we will advise you on suitable alternatives.

An Initial Approval Certificate that records the type of business, activities and partners is granted by DED. It indicates that the Government has no objection in issuing a License as per the submitted Proposal.

Businesses must have a Physical Location or Address. We help in finding the appropriate Company Office Space and drafting the Tenancy Agreement with the Landlord and have it registered by an “Ejari”.

We will help you in drafting a MOA which must be signed by all the partners. Some Businesses require a UAE National to be involved, and represent your company on Licensing and compliance matters with the Govt. In such a case, you must sign a Local Service Agent (LSA) Agreement.

You will be issued a Payment Voucher and must pay for the License within 30 days of receiving it. Once payment is done at the same time License is issued.
