Dubai holds several advantages for modern businesses. The developed banking and economic sectors have attracted investors to set up business in Dubai and the UAE. LLC company formation in Dubai is an effortless task if one abides by the law. One of the most important aspects while setting a corporation in Dubai is to decide upon the type of legal entity you want to establish. It may depend upon the product, location, strategic objectives, and where you are going to operate your business – locally or internationally. In the UAE, a company can be formed under 3 jurisdictions, namely, Mainland, Free Zone, and Offshore. This blog is dedicated to providing information on how to form a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in Dubai, which is a standard type of company in the UAE mainland.
What is an LLC?
A limited liability company formation in Dubai is one of the most common forms of entities preferred by a businessman while setting up a company. It can be defined as a company in which the liability of its partners is limited only to the extent of their shares in the capital. It is a separate and distinct legal entity. This means that an LLC can get a tax identification number (TIN), open a bank account and do business, all under its own name.
Limited Liability Company in The UAE
The LLC company formation in Dubai is one of the more predominant types of business structure in the UAE. Forming an LLC company in Dubai requires a minimum of two and a maximum of 50 shareholders.
Ownership of shares within the company is dependent on type of investor. A Local sponsor in Dubai must own at least 51% of the firm’s equity is the minimum for UAE national while a foreign investor must not own more than 49%.
The required capital to form an LLC in Dubai is AED 300,000 (US$ 81,744) and can be contributed in either cash or in kind. However, the required capital in the other Emirates is AED 150,000 (US$ 40,872).
The distribution of profit or loss can be agreed upon while the responsibility of managing of LLC can either be vested on the national or foreign partners or even a third party. Shares of LLC are neither open for public subscription nor can they be issued as negotiable.
An LLC is not allowed to offer insurance, business banking or money investment services on behalf of others. In addition, these shares cannot be represented as negotiable instruments.
If the purpose of your company is to make a sale within the region, then it is recommended you opt for an LLC company in Dubai. A mainland LLC company in Dubai can trade anywhere within the UAE and/or the extended Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. However, it should be noted that the company should have one Local sponsor in Dubai who holds about 51% of the total shares in the company, according to the UAE Commercial Companies Law (CCL). Unlike a free zone and an offshore company, an LLC in mainland does not allow 100% foreign ownership to an investor. They are accountable for the remaining 49% shares of the company. Recent amendments removed the requirement for minimum shares (previously AED 300,000 in Dubai) allowing the shareholders to decide the limit which could be less than earlier prescribed bottom line. Additionally, an LLC can be formed with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 50 shareholders, whose liability is limited to their share in the business capital.
