Extensive documentation is a necessary requirement for setting up a business in the UAE, just asthe obligation is an essential part of business life elsewhere in the world.And in the UAE too, the process can prove to be a complex or a smooth affair. Meticulous preparation of the applications, attestation of the certificates and scrupulously following the procedure can help you to setup the business comfortably.
The UAE allows several the types of business structure governed by various Federal and Emirate-specific laws. Different authorities, municipalities and departments, e.g. Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai, Department of Economic Development (DED,) and different Free Zone Authority are empowered to grant the licenses and permissions to setup a business.
The type of documents depends upon the type of company for instance whether you are establishing a business on the Mainland, a Free Zone Company or an offshore company. The number of documents and related formalities can be mind boggling, notwithstanding the fact that UAE has simplified the procedure to a great extent.
Consider this. If you are a Non-GCC National, you would need around seven documents for initial approval alone and DED may indicate what further approvals are required on a case-by-case basis. That gives a fair idea of the scope of the process. However, this is not a cause for concern, as HCMC has the expertise to assist you with the documentation.
