Different types of licenses exist for establishing your business

If you are interested in starting a business in the UAE, there are different types of licenses that you need to be aware of. Each license comes with its own rules and regulations, benefits and limitations.

1. Mainland License

The Mainland License allows businesses to operate within the Emirati jurisdiction boundaries. It offers 100% foreign ownership, meaning no need for an Emirati shareholder or agent. The Mainland License has various types, such as Professional, Commercial, Industrial, Tourism, and E Trader licenses, each with specific requirements corresponding to different types of businesses.

2. Freezone License

The Free Zone License applies to companies incorporated in any UAE Free Zone and permits conducting business within or outside of the Free Zone. Depending on your business, the Free Zone Authority grants a Trade, Industrial, or Service license, which can be renewed annually with a lease agreement in effect.

3. Offshore License

Enables operating an offshore company in the UAE, but it cannot conduct business within the country or have a physical office there. The benefits of an offshore company include confidentiality, anonymity for investors, and low overhead costs with inexpensive licensing and registration. Owning an offshore company disqualifies one from UAE residency visas.
