    Steps in Setting Up Your


    in Dubai South

    Setting up your company in Dubai South is easy and straightforward. However, seeking advice from Creative Zone can help you minimize the time and cost needed for company formation.

    Here are the general steps for establishing your company in Dubai South:


    Choose a Legal Form for Your Business


    The first step in setting up a business in Dubai South is to choose a legal form for your business. This can be either an LLC or a branch company.

    Each has its requirements, advantages, and disadvantages, so making a careful decision is vital. Before incorporating your business in Dubai South, you must outline your business activities to evaluate what type of trade license you will get.

    Prepare the Articles of Association (AOA) and Memorandum of Association (MOA)

    AOAs and MOAs are the most critical documents you must prepare before establishing your business. You will need to notarize these documents through a legal company.

    Depending on the type of business you are setting up, you may need to obtain additional requirements depending on your business license type.


    Certificate of Registration

    Once you have submitted all the requirements, you will receive a Certificate of Registration, which allows you to open a bank account. This certificate is typically issued within 7-14 days after the application.


    Secure an Office Space

    Once you have registered your business and obtained the necessary licenses, you will need to secure an office space in Dubai South. This can be done by leasing or constructing a new building.


    Open a Bank Account

    After providing all the relevant documents, such as your certificate of business registration, license, and lease agreement, you can now finally open a corporate bank account. This is where all the financial transactions of your company will be done.
