OFFSHORE INCORPORATION
SERVICES IN DUBAI

 

GENERAL OVERVIEW
There are ample opportunities for doing business in the UAE. At the present time the economy is booming - GDP having risen by 20.4 per cent in 2000. Although a significant proportion of that increase was due to higher oil prices, government encouraged industrial diversification is also contributing to continuing economic prosperity. A signatory of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, the UAE supports a liberal economy and is committed to free trade. The UAE currency is secure and freely convertible. There are no restrictions on profit transfer or capital repatriation. Import duties are low (4 per cent) and in the case of foodstuffs, medicine, agricultural products, and items imported for use in the free zones are non-existent. Labor costs are competitive and corporate tax and personal taxes are nil. In addition every effort is being made to reduce the paperwork involved in establishing a business in the UAE. These factors combined with a strategic, accessible location, an excellent reliable infrastructure and an extremely pleasant and safe working environment bode well for future investment.


INCORPORATING IN U.A.E. - DUBAI

As some of you already know, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to establish a company in Dubai that does not require either a physical presence there, a local majority shareholder, or a relatively high level of capital.

For example, an LLC, which can carry out business in the UAE, has a fairly high capital requirement, and more significantly, requires a UAE national to hold at least 51% of the shares. A local office presence is also required. The cost to incorporate and obtain the necessary trade licence is also quite high.

The alternative, a Free Zone company or Enterprise, whilst permitting 100% foreign ownership, often requires a physical office presence in Dubai, and again, fees can be quite high.

Eurofinanzza is now able to offer companies, incorporated in the UAE, and domiciled in Dubai, that can be 100% foreign-owned, with no requirement to establish a physical presence, no minimum capital requirement, no tax liability on profits, no requirement to file accounts, no requirement for a trade licence, has a minimum requirement of one shareholder and one director, permits bearer shares to be issued, and offers a high degree of confidentiality.

It is also possible to nominate the jurisdiction of applicable law, meaning that you can choose the jurisdiction for settling any disputes etc. Any Country can be nominated (it does not have to be in the UAE) and it is written into the Memorandum & Articles of Association.

These companies have many similar features to, say, a BVI or Seychelles company, and have one or two advantages as well.

Companies may conduct a wide range of legitimate business activities, with the exception of banking and insurance.

They may not conduct business in the UAE without the necessary authorisation. However, this is common in most offshore jurisdictions. The companies can, however, acquire real estate in the UAE, and so they may be considered as ideal vehicles for property ownership there.

We can domicile the companies in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) should a particularly prestigious address be required. This may interest our financial services clients in particular.

We are also able to arrange bank accounts in Dubai with a global banking group, and finance for property acquisitions (subject to the client meeting the lender's criteria).
