2. Choosing Business Types and Business Activities
The first steps are to choose the business type and activities, choose the right legal form and choose the location. We guide you through each step and give expert advice on legal matters, business plans and much more besides.
2.1 Choosing Business Types and Business Activities –
Businesses fall into three categories:
a. Professional – personally offered high-value services such as management consultancy or public relations
b. Commercial – this includes any business that trades in goods or
services to the public such as retail sales
c. Industrial – this includes all manufacturing businesses or operations
involving processing goods or packaging products for sale
You must be clear on all of your business activities, as some companies will undertake several activities under one business license. To help you decide, we provide a full list on the legal Structure of some companies.
3. Choosing the Legal Form for Business
When you select a legal form for your business in Dubai, you must take into account the business type, business activities, the number and the nationality of owners and the ownership options. There is a wide range of legal forms to help you choose the one that is right for your business.
These include sole proprietorships, partnerships, branches of foreign companies and many more.
4. Choosing Business Location
Choosing the right location for a new company is one of the most important factors for success. Dubai‘s mainland and freezone options have different advantages depending on your business type and activities.
Mainland Dubai has some of the best business locations in the world ranging from Sheikh Zayed Road, the city’s main highway and Downtown Dubai, home to the world’s tallest building, to the smaller shops, and massive malls.
If you choose Dubai mainland, you will need to register with the Dubai Department of Economic Development, who will issue you with a Dubai business license.
The specialist freezones may be better suited to your business. Dubai has more than 20 freezones, including Media City, Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai Airport Freezone and Jebel Ali Freezone, one of the largest ports in the world and home to 6,400 companies. Each freezone has its own licensing body and you need to contact them directly for the licensing process.
Whether you decide on mainland Dubai or a freezone, all businesses and their employees will pay NO business taxes or personal taxes. Whichever location you choose, Dubai is a business opportunity not to be missed.

6. Deciding Ownership Rights
Ownership rights can differ, depending on the type of business and business activities and the location of you business.
It might sound like there is a huge difference between Dubai mainland versus freezones when it comes to ownership rights.
