Setup Process

Dubai Media City based companies are registered and licensed by Dubai Creative Clusters Authority (DCCA).

The right legal structure needs to be selected when setting up your business. There are several structures to choose from, depending on your needs.

  1. A FZ-LLC is formed as a separate legal entity, with shareholders as individuals and/or Corporates.

The minimum capital requirement for incorporation depends on the business activity.

  1. A branch is not a legal entity separate from its parent

It is considered a place of business that forms a legally dependent part of the parent company

It conducts all or some of the operations inherent in the parent’s business and share capital is not required

  1. The Freelance permit offers the ability to operate as a freelance professional

The permit identifies you as a sole practitioner

It enables you to conduct your business in your birth name as opposed to a brand name
