Mainland is the most common form of business in the UAE. It opens door to a wider market by letting you trade with other mainland companies. Unlike free zones, you don’t have to go through the task of finding a local distribution agent and pay customs duty. A mainland business license lets you work on government projects that are extremely profitable. Competition will also be less, as free zone companies are not provided with the opportunity to work for government entities. Moreover, mainland companies don’t demand for a minimum capital requirement, which makes the establishment even easier and affordable.
Selecting the type of license is the first step in starting a business in UAE. You can choose from commercial, professional and industrial license. Companies engaged in buying or selling of goods can opt for a commercial license. Entities involved in industrial and manufacturing activities, should apply for industrial license. And, professional license will be granted to service providers, professionals, artisans, and craftsmen.
