Mainland License

All You Need to Know About Our License Selecting Services

To establish their mainland company as a legal entity in the UAE, entrepreneurs and businesses are required to obtain a trade license – a requirement that applies to both Mainland Dubai and free zone jurisdictions. Securing a trade license assures your customers that your business operates in compliance with local laws and regulations, and is essential to launching your operations.

While registering your business in the mainland involves multiple steps, obtaining a trade license is perhaps the most crucial aspect of setting up your company for long-term success. The type of trade license you need to acquire, and the corresponding requirements, will depend on your company structure, intended business activities, and operating jurisdiction.

To help you navigate the trade license application process, we’ve outlined the three main types of trade licenses you should consider as you launch your business on Dubai’s mainland.
