The United Arab Emirates boasts a comprehensive set of laws that are aligned with the nation’s investment directives and feature well-structured legislative frameworks aimed at attracting foreign investment. The Commercial Companies Law of 2020 constitutes a seminal advancement in legal legislation and encourages investment and business establishment, affording foreign investors the opportunity to establish companies with full ownership rights.
The UAE Government has revised the federal Commercial Companies Law, providing foreign investors with full ownership rights for designated businesses. This amendment means that they are no longer subject to the prior restriction of a maximum 49% share ownership, but may hold up to 100% ownership, excluding activities with a strategic impact.
An individual Emirati national will sponsor your business and will hold a 51% stake of your company if your business activities have a strategic impact. In exchange for a set of annual fees, the local sponsor/partner will grant complete operational powers to the foreign partner(s) or a third party on the memorandum of association.
Similar to individual sponsorship, the difference is that the sponsor is a company owned by a UAE national. Same as for individual sponsorship, the corporate local sponsor will hold a 51% stake in the company and receive a set fee or profit share as mutually agreed with the foreign partner(s).
