In less than 40 years under the visionary leadership of Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai has transformed itself from a local trading community into a global financial center and global trading house. Its progress continues to make global headlines and it is now a strong commercial destination for Investors and Operating Business Entities seeking to capitalize on Dubai’s strategic positioning as a leading destination for tourism as well as businesses alike. With a diversity unique in the region, multicultural population, Dubai offers its residents and businesses a unique environment, enriched with a polyglot of talent and a quality of life and work unrivalled in the Middle East. It is a bustling metropolis with a combination of Emirati heritage, Arabic vitality, Western spontaneity and Asian ambition. As thousands of new businesses are discovering each year, Dubai is an effective jurisdiction and structured environment, with an ease of doing business which rivals and often exceeds other financial gateways, the perfect positioning between East and West and the preferred hub for the region’s imports and exports market – one of the most lucrative in the world. Dubai’s strategic location gives easy access to 2.2 billion consumers, from a unique centralized positioning & time zone that combines East and West business hours.

All onshore businesses targeting the local markets of Dubai, Abu Dhabi or the UAE are generally incorporated within mainland of their respective city. For businesses based in mainland Dubai, non-UAE nationals, including nationals of other GCC states, can register their businesses in the respective city’s Department of Economic Development.

Businesses planning to operate offshore choose a free zone based on the sector they operate in and their type of activities. Each free zone is governed by an independent Free Zone Authority (FZA), which is responsible for issuing the necessary licenses. Various free zones have different minimum capital requirements. In general, three options exist for investors wishing to set up their businesses within a free zone. A business wishing to operate from a free zone can either incorporate a free zone establishment (FZE), a free zone company (FZC) or operate through a branch office of a foreign or local company. Branch offices are subject to a limited amount of administration requirements.

Beaufort Trade Investments will guide and advise on onshore structure, offshore options, including but not limited to Free Zone advantages and limitations, due process and government support in any GCC or regional location. Risk mitigation is essential in any new investment, therefore Beaufort Trade Investments represents your best assurance in planning any cross border involvements, transactions or expansions and growth initiatives.
