The UAE offers a particularly attractive business environment.

In addition, UAE Free Zones deliver outstanding opportunities that every serious investor and business owner should consider.
The UAE is home to around 40 Free Zones, many of which are located in and around Dubai. Given their success, new Free Zones are expected in the coming months and years. Free Zones bring a host of benefits for investors and business owners, including:
Double taxation agreements relieve individuals and corporations from the requirement to pay tax on a given item in two different jurisdictions during the same time period. The agreements specify which of the two states involved should levy tax in a given instance. DTAAs exist between the following nation states:
|Antigua and Barbuda||Argentina||Armenia||Austria|
|Belgium||Benin||Bermuda||Bosnia and Herzegovina|
|Costa Rica||Croatia||Cyprus||Czech Republic|
|Russia||Rwanda||SERBIA||Saint Kitts and Nevis|

With knowledge, insight and professional experience, DubaiConsult specialists deliver the high quality information, support and services you need to establish your limited liability company (LLC) in the UAE. We can provide a wide range of services including:
The limited liability company or LLC is the most popular means of creating a commercial company in the UAE, and for good reason. The package of benefits in the UAE’s secure and fast-growing economies are highly attractive to the astute business owner:
An LLC must have between two and 50 members and a minimum capital of Dh300,000. Management of the LLC is vested in up to five individual ‘managers’ who may or may not be UAE nationals. The establishment of limited liability companies is regulated by articles 218 to 255 of the Commercial Companies Law (CCL).
Under CCL, foreign investors are permitted to hold up to 49% equity ownership in UAE companies: 51% of the equity must be held at all times by one or more UAE nationals.
Businesses involving banking, insurance or investment activities conducted on behalf of third parties may not be incorporated and should seek public joint stock company status.

With a team of professionals highly experienced across all aspects of UAE business formation, we will ensure that you have the information, support and assistance you need to establish, equip and service your offshore company quickly and efficiently.
We can provide a complete package, including:
An offshore (or ‘non-resident’) company is one that is incorporated outside the jurisdiction in which it conducts its primary operations. Although an offshore company may not trade substantially within the jurisdiction in which it is incorporated, its offshore company status attracts many valuable benefits and freedoms, such as:
The offshore company is a valuable international tax planning tool that suits many business formats. It is a popular choice for diverse operations including general trade, consulting and advisory services, holding companies, property and investment companies, international services and shipping. However no matter what format or sector, precise and professional advice is essential to comply with all necessary regulations and requirements and deliver the best possible advantages.
There are numerous offshore jurisdictions, and the right one for you and your project will depend on many factors. However, the UAE offers exceptional advantages as an offshore jurisdiction. Unlike many others, the UAE is not ‘blacklisted’ by the OECD or FATF, nor is it simply a ‘tax haven’: it is a nation in its own right with a burgeoning economy and a fine history of progress in international business and finance. With its stable economic and political character, rapid growth and exceptional living standards, the UAE is becoming the envy of the world. DubaiConsult is only too happy to discuss your aspirations, plans and ideas to help you make the right business decision for you.
Detailed knowledge and strategic insight are essential in offshore banking. DubaiConsult’s expert financial team works with you to identify and action the ideal offshore banking arrangements for you and your organisation.
In simple terms, offshore banking can be defined as running one or more bank accounts outside the country in which you live. There may be many reasons why offshore accounts would prove beneficial, for example you may wish to save tax, or obtain a multi-currency loan. In addition, UAE offshore accounts deliver particular advantages.
Flexible transactions and easy management of worldwide financial commitments are driving a rapid rise in the importance and popularity of UAE offshore banking. New and exciting initiatives are implemented regularly. One such example is Dubai’s introduction of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) which allows free trade in the emirate. It is anticipated that this will fuel still greater growth.
UAE banks are experts in international bank transfers. Dubai in particular has recently overseen a highly profitable outflow of money. While some UAE-based banking clients now export a significant chunk of their income to their homeland, many others use these bank accounts to escape weighty taxation in their own country.
All Dubai’s banking activities are currently under UAE Central Bank regulation. Although this imposes limitations on foreign banks, there are, crucially, no restrictions on depositing or moving foreign currency denominations to and from the emirate: indeed, you are free to transfer money to and from any corner of the world in any currency you wish.
Most of the people find it easier to transfer money to their offshore banks from their very own bank, but care is warranted here as exchange rates and commission fees can be punishing: make sure you are clear about the total cost of the service. At DubaiConsult we have our clients’ individual needs and wellbeing at heart and we make sure that you get the best deals for your particular circumstances.
Our UAE offshore banking expertise extends well beyond arranging the best bank accounts for you. We also offer the following specialisms:
It's important to note that any private accounts in your own name must be declared in your tax return. Some private account holders 'forget' to declare their privately held foreign accounts but this clearly constitutes tax evasion which may bring serious legal consequences. However by definition, an offshore company has a zero tax liability. Therefore it is perfectly legal to file the company as the account holder. In this case, even though control over the account rests with you, you can honestly state you own no overseas accounts and no tax will be payable in relation to those accounts.
DubaiConsult assists clients with all their property requirements. Close partnerships with both RERA certified and Ejari registered agencies allow us to deliver superb real estate brokerage that meets the high standards demanded by this exclusive sector. We consistently apply international standards of transparency and due diligence in buying, selling and leasing high-end properties in both the residential and commercial marketplaces.
Since the discovery of rich oil resources in the late 20th century, Dubai has flourished and diversified in a thousand ways. Today it presides as a global power-house and a central business hub for Asia and Europe. A remarkable haven for investors, Dubai offers tax-free incentives, a stable, growing economy, a continuous supply and demand cycle, world-class infrastructure and all the luxury and sophistication you could wish for!
Dubai’s successful bid to host the World Expo 2020 further fuels its promise of superb property investment returns over the coming years. As the emirate prepares to be the prestigious global focus for this huge and historic event, the positive effects are already impacting. The vast international exhibition will continue to attract a wealth of economic, employment, infrastructure and cultural benefits which will continue long after the 2020 event is over. When it comes to luxury property, Dubai is without question the place to be!
As a leading real estate player, the emirate offers a fabulous range of villas, apartments, townhouses and holiday homes for the private buyer and prime property investment opportunities. DubaiConsult’s real estate specialists are ideally placed to give you the ultimate in guidance, service, support – and the perfect property for you.
