Our UAE Holistic Package Approach
Starting a business in another country and becoming resident and fiscal resident of that other country is indeed a challenge. The challenges are hidden in the details, often shaped by local culture and habits as well as specific procedures of authorities.
While company formation in the UAE might be a straightforward procedure and be offered by many, resident visa application as well as applying for UAE tax residency (fiscal residency) are subject to certain conditions and undertakings, prior to the submission of the applications.
Some of them are, for example, a (simple) UAE health insurance, a blood test, or certain certificates, just to name a few. Tax residency in the UAE requires owned or leased property; be it a owned luxury house or a rented inexpensive flat rented.
We offer our clients all-inclusive and complete solutions, with no hidden costs and including all fees to be paid to third party service providers (medical laboratories, document testation, all official fees etc.).
Our service typically starts with having you picked up from the airport and transferred to your hotel where one of our team members will meet you and accompany you to all offices and places that you will need to present yourself. Appointments will be pre-arranged by us to avoid long waiting times. We will also advise you on the best choice of banks to open your private and company bank accounts. Meetings with bankers for bank account opening will be conducted in our office in Dubai, unless you wish to visit the bank. In this case, we will be happy to accompany you too.
Our services do not end after your UAE company has been registered, your residence visa issued, and your UAE tax residency confirmed.
To maintain a resident visa, you will be required to visit the UAE at least every 180 days. We even remind our clients well in advance of their deadlines to visit the UAE.
We furthermore provide all services to maintain your UAE company and its business licences. We provide accountancy services and responsibly maintain statutory obligations. We are there for you when your residence visa needs to be renewed after three years.
