Business setup in the UAE could be a little bit confusing and complicated due to its many regulatory authorities and different types of companies.

The First Step: Is to determine your business jurisdiction (choose where your company will be established), which market will be covered, what type of ownership, and from where will you run your business

DED or mainland companies in the UAE commonly referred to as LLC Company could easily do business both domestically and internationally, but it requires a 51% partnership with a local UAE National, On the other hand UAE Free Zone companies are 100% foreign owned, and can also operate domestically and internationally, but their domestic activities are restricted to free zone areas unless you assign a local company as becoming your local distributor, or you open a mainland branch which requires a local service agent (UAE National). Offshore companies in Dubai and Ras al-Khaimah (Jabal Ali Offshore & RAK Offshore), are for businesses being operated and taking place out of the country. It could also be 100% foreign owned, but an Offshore Company cannot obtain a physical UAE Office, and its shareholders will not obtain a UAE Investor Residency Visa, You can run your UAE Offshore company from anywhere in the world.
