Mainland Company Formation

Mainland Company Setup in UAE

Setting up a mainland company in Dubai is an excellent option for businesses looking to expand their operations in the UAE. 

When you register your business with the Department of Economic Development (DED), it becomes a mainland company. This allows you to do business anywhere in the UAE.  

This flexibility and freedom to operate in the local market is just one of the many advantages of setting up a mainland company in Dubai.
