Should you undertake business setup in Dubai yourself?

Wondering if you can start a Dubai company yourself? You can. But there are some things you need to know.

1. There is a multitude of options.

With over 60 jurisdictions, how do you know which is the right one for your Dubai company? How do you make sure you’re choosing the right licence and business activity? Don’t let your business setup in Dubai be a trial-and-error process.

2. It is not easy. 

Liaising with the relevant authorities and government departments alone takes time and travel miles.  Lots of both.

3. There is a mountain of paperwork. 

Starting a Dubai company involves tonnes of paperwork. Think forms, applications, banking and legal requirements – and that is just the start.  

4. You might save money – but at what cost? 

What is your time worth?  Are you outstanding with detail?  Can you afford to hit pause on your business plans to fill out forms or attend more meetings?

I've spent quite some time searching for a company to help me set up my own business but the road was bumpy receiving dubious and particularly unclear information from various companies within Dubai. That is until I contacted Virtuzone and got in touch with Sangeetha Pillai who turned out to be knowledgeable and crystal clear in her explanation about the entire process. After signing up for setting up my business I was taken along and updated with each step of the process in professional fashion. The result was flawless with my company setup in rapid fashion. Keep up the great work!

Choosing the right licence and applying for it are essential to getting your business setup in Dubai right. Having an in-depth understanding of the dos and don’ts around setting up your business licence will help you to avoid the common traps we see people fall into.
