Company Formation in the UAE Mainland

Business Formation Services – Your Gateway to UAE Commerce

Companies operating under the UAE Mainland license enjoy many advantages:

  • No minimum capital requirement for company formation
  • Simple and quick registration process
  • Flexibility to set up offices and do business anywhere in the UAE
  • Ability to take up work from both private and public sectors
  • No cap on the number of visas issued (subject to office size)
  • Ability to repatriate capital and profits up to 100%
  • Exemption from corporate and income tax
  • No annual audits required
  • Flexibility to expand their businesses into different industries

In contrast, Free Zone companies can locate offices only in their own zone, operate only within the industry the zone specializes in, and do business only with the private sector. The UAE Mainland option is therefore an attractive prospect for many entrepreneurs.

At MBG Corporate Services, we deliver the best benefits and expedite the formation of your Mainland company. Our services cover the entire spectrum of company formation procedures in the UAE Mainland. From company registration and trade license acquisition to contract drafting and notarization of documents, we guide you at every step of the process. Our links with ministries and government bodies across the UAE help us obtain speedy government approvals for our clients. Our consultants work closely with the Department of Economic Development (DED) and other government bodies in Dubai to ensure smooth and timely formation of your Mainland company.
