Office space requirements & solutions for DMCC company formation

Every DMCC/JLT company must have a registered office. JLT offers different solutions, starting from a Flexi Desk facility to fitted or unfitted office spaces in the DMCC/JLT Business Park. However, a company can choose to lease or buy an office providing that it is located in one of the many office building in the JLT.

Visas

After the incorporation, license and establishment card have been issued, the company can apply for a renewable 3 years UAE residency permits/visas for shareholders and employees. If the company has a Flexi Desk arrangement, it is entitled for 3 visas, while in the leased office arrangement, 1 visa is allocated for each 10 square meters of leased office space.

Following to the successful process of the visa application, the client should enter the UAE to complete the medical test procedures and get the residency permit stamped on their passport. The process normally takes between five to seven working days to be completed. Corporate House’s DMCC company setup specialists ensure our clients will complete the process in the least painful and most effective way.

After the issuance of the visa, the visa holder can sponsor their direct family immediately. It has to be noted that a UAE resident needs to visit the UAE at least once every six months to ensure the validity of the visa.

Reporting

Each Free Zone company must have one or more independent auditors to prepare its audit report. The report should be kept in their registered office to be available for inspection.

Bank account:

DMCC does not require the capital to be paid up front, thus the bank account can be opened at a later stage after the incorporation. Corporate House can assist with this for an extra fee.
