A greater percentage of Dubai Limited Liability Companies use the local UAE sponsor as a “silent partner.” The local UAE sponsor often receives an annual “sponsorship fee” under this structure in exchange for ceding management control of the business to the international investor. But we should give UAE National 51% of the corporation as a formality. To protect your investment, you can draft a side agreement that specifies that you own the entire investment, including the sponsor’s portion. The notary public cannot certify this agreement. However, you might request the sponsor’s signature as confirmation.
The duration of a commercial license is one year. There is a 30-day grace period following expiration. If the contract is not renewed during the grace period, DED will assess a fine of Dh200 per month. There is no need to pay the Dh15000 special General Trading costs at the time of renewal. Employee housing costs are an additional expense to be paid depending on the staffing level, in addition to the existing expenses. Pay should be Dh500 per head for managers and degree- or postgraduate-level professionals, and Dh300 per head for lower-level employees. This sum needs to be paid annually. Partner: Dh1000, Supervisor: Dh500, Office Personnel: Dh300, Waiter: Dh300, and Laborer: Dh300.
