New Investment Law will boost up the foreign businesses in the UAE

Have you been hoping to expand your business operations in Dubai but the limitations of the current foreign investment law hold you back? Then this is the right time to start planning your company formation.

The Current Investment Law of Dubai LLC Formation

Currently, when a foreign investor wants to form a local company (LLC) in Dubai, the current UAE Investment Law allows them to own up to 49% of the company only. At least 51% of the company ownership must be given to the UAE nationals. This limits the extent of foreign investment in the country because of inhibitions of shared control. But this situation is expected to take a favorable turn by the first quarter of 2018 when the new investment law will be enforced.

Implication of the new UAE Investment Law

The draft law aims to upgrade the UAE investment environment and encourage foreign direct investments into different segments of the UAE economy. It will allow foreign investors to increase the percentage of ownership up to 100%. You will be able to be in complete control of the company and easily enter the markets and compete with regional companies in the industry. Business setup in Dubai is sure to rise with the onset of this law. The approaching change, which is intended to radically change the investment scene of the UAE, is broadly anticipated to provoke the rise of foreign investments, particularly into the non-oil sectors.
