- Do I need to set up in the mainland in order to operate in the UAE?

It depends on several factors, including the type of business you are operating, your target market, and the type of products or services you offer. Generally speaking, many businesses choose to set up in the mainland of the UAE in order to take advantage of the country's favorable business environment and access to a large pool of potential customers. However, there may be other options available depending on your specific circumstances

- Is my corporate structure suitable for my business operations?

Whether a corporate structure is suitable for a business operation depends on various factors, including the nature of the business, the ownership structure, the jurisdiction in which the business is operating, and the goals of the business. Reach out and we can discuss in more detail.

- Are Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) / Holding companies permissible in the UAE?

Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) companies are permissible in the UAE. An SPV is a subsidiary company that is created for a specific purpose, such as holding assets or managing financial obligations. In the UAE, an SPV can be set up as a limited liability company (LLC) or other type of legal entity, depending on the specific needs of the business. It is important to note that the legal and regulatory requirements for setting up an SPV in the UAE may vary depending on the jurisdiction and type of business.
