    There are various types of businesses in Dubai such as manufacturing, trade, services, or retail. However, there are some rough estimates while planning for investment or finances to establish a business in Dubai.
    Depending on the type of business setup you want to form in Dubai such as Manufacturing Business, trade, services or retail business; following is a general estimate when you plan for investment and financing to set up a business in Dubai:

    The legal costs (business setup in Dubai costs, professional fees and government charges, etc) ranges from US$2,000 to US$ 10,000. These are the average fees for “setting up a business” in trade, import-export, retail business or services sector etc.

    lease of commercial office or retail space In Dubai:

    The commercial office space in Dubai commences from US$30 /Sq Ft to US$200 / sq ft. The retail space in Dubai runs from US$90 / sq ft – US$500 / sq ft. Commercial lease prices elsewhere across UAE are cheaper.
    After completing the above requirements then you can start your operations of your company anywhere around these areas within UAE. Business margin is very good within this part but it is very difficult to always remain cash positive.

    Setting up a company in Dubai is possible for foreigners. Around 80% of people living in Dubai are immigrants, many of whom totally own their businesses.
    Dubai welcomes foreign investors and business owners from abroad. The UAE has many startup experts and business set up consultants as well as agents that guide foreign entrepreneurs through the different licensing processes, visas, and incorporation. Many of these are buried away where not many people know about them. Therefore, it’s advisable that one should understand these complicated steps in advance to simplify the process of establishing a business there.

    The first thing you have to do is to find best agent for company formation in Dubai who can lead you through each step of this process including consulting and documentation.

    When choosing a name for your business setup in the United Arab Emirates make sure:

    Public order and public morals must be respected when naming their enterprises;

    There exist various legal forms of company such as (LLC, FZE…) after its name;

    Brand name should not be already registered before

    The type of business should be 100% compatible with a particular kind of business activity and legal form.
    No religion, belief or governing authority’s name should appear in the business.  

    There is a lot of confusion with different types of business that can be set up in Dubai via a “foreign entrepreneur”. There is also confusion about the requirements of local UAE-based sponsors to start a business in Dubai.

    So, do we really need a UAE citizen as a Local Sponsor to set up our business?

    The actual answer depends on the nature of the business you select to set up whether it will be located on the UAE mainland or the Dubai free zone. These are the #2 major factors that will determine if there will be a need for a local sponsor to start a business in Dubai.

    A local sponsor from the UAE is a must if a foreign investor wishes to set up his business in the UAE mainland. The local sponsor must be a UAE citizen, but this is not compulsory in the case with Dubai free zones. If you are planning to set up business in the “UAE mainland”, then 51% of the business will be managed and owned by the UAE’s local sponsor. 

    So if any foreign investor is planning to set up business in the UAE, it is important to understand the various business setup procedures. The businesses can be set up in Dubai mainland through:

    • Individual Sponsorship
    • Corporate sponsorship
    • Local Service Agent

    Are you planning to start a business in Dubai, UAE? Before you start with the business setup process, you have to make sure to choose the best suitable “free zone” which you want to form your business in the UAE. This business planning in the UAE may become confusing and quite a challenge when choosing from 30 free zones in Dubai.

    1. Company Registration Fee: The company registration in Dubai fee is just a one-time charge to the Dubai free zone authorities in the beginning phases of the business registration. Although, the local legal structures will determine the exact fee for company registration. The costs for “registering a company in Dubai free zone” are not always exceptionally varied; it is approx in the range of AED 9,000 to AED 10,000.
    1. Licence Fee: While forming a business in Dubai-free zones, the important step is to get your required business license. The three most important business licenses are a trading license, services license, and industrial sectors license. Although the company registration fee in Dubai, trade license fees are recurring and will cost approximately AED 10,000 – AED 50,000 per year.
    1. Office Fee: Renting an office in Dubai is an important step to get your business license in Dubai. All free zones in Dubai do offer a mix of space requirements to fit all your business requirements, all including the serviced, smart & flexible desks. Office rent in Dubai will typically cost between AED 15,000 to AED 20,000. At GCS Group, we offer a range of all-in-one office solutions perfect for any new Dubai-based business and the small to big startups. We are located in the most vibrant community of Dubai; make My company offers flexible & all types of serviced desks, individual coworking offices and spaces, and high-end business centers in Dubai. All equipped with a varied collection of basic facilities to set up & expand your dream business in Dubai.
    2. Share Capital: The minimum required “share capital amount” may differ particularly for each Dubai free zone, ranging from AED 1,000 to AED 1,000,000 depending on the nature of the business activities & the types of licenses. The “average share capital requirement” for the Dubai free zones is AED 50,000.

    In Dubai, businesses can obtain licenses based on the nature of their activities, and the Department of Economic Development (DED) governs three main types:

    • Commercial License: Suitable for trading firms, in factories and transport.
    • Professional License: For companies providing specialty services or know-how, such as consultancies, accountancy firms and architectural firms.
    • Industrial License: But focused on firms engaged in manufacturing or industrial activities, especially those which process raw materials into finished products.

    Because each license allows you to make only certain kinds of moves, it is important that your business activities be accurately defined. This is another case in which Free Zones and offshore businesses may have different types of licenses, as well as requirements. Based on your business plans, working with the professionals can help to avoid pitfalls in licensing.

    Definitely! You can open a company in Dubai even if you do not have a residence visa. GCS GROUP has expertise in facilitating entrepreneurs like yourself to maneuver business setup intricacies in Dubai. While having a residence visa can give some benefits, it is not absolutely required when you want to start your venture. Our professional advisers will assist you through the whole procedure by ensuring that you comply with legal provisions and that your choices are well thought of. With GCS GROUP, it is very possible for one to kick start their business life in Dubai without necessarily having a residential visa.
