Dubai LLC Mainland company setup

LLC Company Formation in Dubai – Mainland Company Setup

Setting up LLC company in mainland Dubai is regulated by the Dubai Department of Economic Development “DED”. An LLC mainland company in the UAE requires a local UAE partner to hold 51% of the company shares, the remaining 49% can be owned by 1 or more foreign party, whether individuals or companies.

Some mainland companies do not require a local partner, depending on the activity as in professional service companies, in this case a local agent should be appointed, and he does not own any shares, however the legal form of the company in this case will be an establishment not an LLC.

Depending on the chosen activity, the DED may require the investor to obtain approvals from other ministries or governmental organisations in the UAE.
