To set up a business in Dubai, be it the mainland or free zone, one has to obtain a license. The trend of Dual License is fast prevailing and has now become the subject of demand among entrepreneurs and businessmen.

What is Dual Licensing?

Dual licensing is demanded by the company in free zones, where the interest lies in operating multiple enterprises. Before the approval of dual-licensing, the companies were allowed to operate only within the boundaries of the free zone that they were registered. Because of which they were missing out on the opportunity to trade in one of the fastest-growing markets n the Middle East.

Now that it’s approved by the Department of Economic Development (DED), it allows the authorities to ensure better governance and regulations. The Department of Economic Development (DED) enhances monitoring and inspection which in turn will improve the transparency and compliance to prevent fraud.
