When a major telecom company was looking to transfer their trade licence from one UAE Free Zone to another, the process seemed daunting. Lacking the necessary expertise and local contacts, they turned to TASC – and we delivered a seamless solution in just 65 days.
In only 65 days, TASC helped a major telecom company transfer licenses and employee visas to a new free zone. This complex process was managed so well by the TASC team, that the client is now partnering with TASC on other projects.
There are more than 45 free zones in the UAE, with still more under construction. Which is right for you? Or would you benefit from a mainland business setup? The choice can be daunting. But don’t worry – our expert team are on hand to guide you through the pros and cons of each option, helping you to settle on the ideal solution for your business.
We have experience in all of the UAE’s free zones, with specialist expertise dealing with Dubai Silicon Oasis, Meydan Free Zone, DMCC and DIFC, across the ran of industry sectors, including hospitality, medical and healthcare, energy, travel and tourism, consulting, logistics and creative services.
As of right now it is not possible to transfer your company to a different free zone. However you can set up a branch of your existing company in a different free zone.
In order to open a UAE bank account you will need to provide the following documents:
Your relationship manager will send you notifications for renewal 3 months before it is due. When it is convenient for you contact them and they will handle the procedure for you.
The first step is to do your medical fitness test and register for Emirates ID renewal. Once this is done and the medical results issued, come with your valid passport (with 3 empty pages and validity of at least 7 months remaining) along with other required documents. Your Visa Specialist will then guide you through the process.
Your physical presence is not required for proceeding with the incorporation process.
E-Channel, a.k.a Tahaluf System Registration, was implemented to streamline immigration processes. It’s mandatory for licenses with visa eligibility in the majority of the northern emirates and consists of a refundable deposit along with a registration and annual renewal fee.
Understanding that each business is different, so identifying the right jurisdiction for your company based on the nature of your business is important. Each jurisdiction has its own advantages and disadvantages. Our team of business setup experts help you choose the right one to help ensure its success.
An immigration card, a.k.a. an establishment card, is required by immigration in order for you to process visas under your license.
Yes, of course you can! A mainland company can be owned 100% by an expatriate shareholder. However, please note it’s subject to the type of business activity under your license.
Yes, but only if you are not structured correctly. At ………. we offer comprehensive advice on company structuring and can implement a few mechanisms to ensure you always remain in control of your business.
If your local partner is a natural person, then an heir will inherit the 51% share in your business. It is then up to that person if he or she wishes to continue in the same manner as nominee shareholder or if they wish to negotiate new terms or be more involved in the business. At ………. we offer a corporate nominee shareholder solution that can protect you in the event of the passing of a local partner.
………. offers a market leading 30-day notice period without penalty if you wish for us to transfer the shares to a new partner while under our sponsorship. However, if you have a natural person as your local partner it is your responsibility to negotiate exit terms at the time of exit.
