Before a company can start doing business in the UAE, it must produce documentation proving it has obtained a general trade license as well as all the legal permits and qualifications to operate locally. This involves a long and extensive process of submitting applications and producing proper documentation. Moreover, the requirements vary based on the type of business you are trying to establish.
For companies in the health, food, and industrial sectors, requirements are likely more extensive and standards more stringent as compared to companies involved in general trade. This is because companies in these industries are required to meet safety and health standards before being allowed to operate. If you are unfamiliar with these requirements, you will likely spend a longer time trying to navigate the process.
Make sure you are not mired by the bureaucratic process with the help of fast, efficient, cost-effective business solutions from Business Setup Consultants – the leading corporate services provider in the UAE today.
