A mainland company is a legal entity that can operate within and outside the nation without any restrictions. If you are choosing UAE Mainland for your business setup, then you need to register the business entity with the DED (Department of Economic Development). After that they will provide a license for you to start business in the country.

A Mainland company can indulge in any industrial, commercial, trading, professional or tourism activity. As per DED’s business regulations, some professional activities are excluded and some other work requires approvals of authorities.

The companies are located within commercialized geographical areas that have been covered under the jurisdiction of the government. Foreign investors can setup their business in a partnership where 51% ownership of the company belongs to UAE nationals. Also they can start a sole establishment company and own 100% of shares. One must also realize the fact that there are some business activities that are reserved only for UAE nationals.
