Who is a Local sponsor?

 

Local sponsor in UAE – The local sponsor is a UAE national’s, who acts as a service agent for your business in UAE and the local sponsor generally acts as a sleeping partner of the company.

Following are the three ways for foreign entrepreneurs to set up a business in UAE

Professional services

The Professional services licenses are issued to service providers such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, consultants and accountants. This is only the way for the foreign entrepreneur to set up business outside free zone and owns 100% of the shares, with the support of a local service agent.

LLC-Limited Liability Company formation

If you require a commercial or industrial license then you must need a local partner.

The local partner own 51% of the business, but profits do not have to be distributed accordingly.

Freezone company formation

Registering a company in a free zone is a straightforward way to maintain 100% ownership in your business without having to take on a local sponsor.
