2. Select Legal Structure:
You need to select one option from the list of allowed business structures in the UAE. Ensure that you select the right one since the rules and regulations your business will be subjected to in the future will depend on its legal form. Here are some of the legal structures that you can select from in Dubai:
Sole Proprietorship, Joint Venture, General Partnership, Public Shareholding Company, Private Shareholding Company, Limited Liability Company, Professional Company, Civil Company
Sole proprietorship was not an option for foreigners on the mainland a while back. But after some amendments to the laws, foreigners can now own 100% of businesses that are not strategically important to the UAE.
