How To Register a Company in Dubai
Starting a business in Dubai can be done by registering your own limited liability company (LLC). This is also referred to as a ‘local company’. You can set up an LLC in Dubai within one week, depending on the time required for setting up bank accounts. In this article, we will discuss all aspects of how to register a company in Dubai.
What is a company?
A company is a legal entity that can be incorporated in Dubai. It’s a separate legal entity from its owners and directors, meaning that if you own shares in a company, you do not have any personal liability for its debts or obligations.
Business is registered with the government and has its own unique identity number (UEN), just like people do when they are born. This means that any business transactions conducted by your company will be recorded as belonging to it rather than you personally – which can save you from paying taxes on certain transactions if done right!
Companies also have directors who manage them on behalf of shareholders; these roles are often filled by individuals but there may also sometimes be companies with multiple directors instead of individuals serving those positions. Either way though: whoever holds these roles needs permission from other parties involved before making decisions on behalf of their respective parties’ interests (i..e., shareholders).

Do you need an accountant or auditor for your new business?
You will need an accountant or auditor. You can hire a professional to help you with your finances or learn how to do your own bookkeeping. If neither of those options appeal, consider hiring a virtual assistant who specializes in financial management tasks such as bookkeeping and payroll services.
You can start your own business by creating an LLC.
An LLC is a legal entity that is separate from its owners. This means that if the company goes bankrupt or faces any other legal issues, only its assets are affected and not those of its owners. In addition to this, an LLC has many of the same benefits as an S-corporation (such as being taxed at the personal level), but it’s easier to set up and costs less money to maintain.
It’s important to note that you can’t just start any business in Dubai; there are certain restrictions on what kind of businesses are allowed here depending on where they fall under Dubai Municipality’s classification system:
In conclusion, if you are planning on starting your own business and would like to register it in Dubai, then you should consider creating an LLC. This type of company is easy to set up, has low fees and offers many benefits such as not being required by law to have an accountant or auditor on board.
