Cost of Setting Up A Business in Dubai
Sunil here to talk about the cost of setting up a business in Dubai
Otherwise why would you be reading this?
The abundance in the Dubai employment market has made it easier than ever to start a business today and run at full speed tomorrow.
If you want to start your company in Dubai you will have to go through the Dubai Department of Economic Development or the DED as most refer to it.
This agency was formed to stimulate economic activity that would grow the emirate of Dubai.
Most cities, states, provinces have an agency of similar stature that reviews business applications, approves them and grants them licenses to operate.
Your cost of setting up a business in Dubai will include the following costs:
Many entrepreneurs start their companies in one of Dubais many free zones such as the Jebel Ali free zone Dubai to avoid paying a local partner. These free zones were established by the Dubai Government to encourage business formation and foreign investment. These zones are treated as stand alone entities and they can be your silent partner in business.
If you want to get an idea of what it would cost you to start a company in Dubai, visit the DED website
and select the English option on the upper left hand side of your screen. This is only if the site reads in Arabic. Once you are in the English mode, navigate to the eservices menu where you can do the cost simulation. If you cannot find it simply take the following link and paste it to your browsers URL address bar.
As much as I am an entrepreneur at heart that loves to take charge and execute things first hand, setting up a business in Dubai is something that I DO NOT RECOMMEND you do alone. There are too many cracks to slip through and they can prove very costly for you both in the short and long term.
You must understand the legal infrastructure and the rules of business in Dubai in general. Starting your company in Dubai all by yourself can also end up costing you way more than what it should.
