Invest in a wide variety of sectors such as industry, agriculture, oil and gas, education,tourism, healthcare and more. Investment vehicles include ownership of shares in these types of businesses, which grants certain privileges to your company.
The state supports investment activities in the UAE and income from foreign sources is not taxed. The ease of interaction with local banks and a variety of international agreements attract the interest of foreign investors and are used as tools for effective investment management and planning. SORP Group will help you understand all the nuances and build an individually tailored scheme for optimizing your company's international activities.
In the UAE, the level of business activity, demand, and affluence of the population is steadily growing. The market here is one of the most developed and modern, and even complex financial products and services are always in high demand.
Every business in the United Arab Emirates has a mandatory licensing procedure. Your license is a "business card" for banks and contractors around the world. For the state, it is a form of control over the activities of your company.

Investing is permitted alongside the regular licensed activities of any company, as permitted and restricted by relevant legislation. For example, professional market participants can make investments, in parallel with the company’s main business activities.
You need to choose a license that corresponds with the profile of your main business or business project (not necessarily an investment one), and choose the place of incorporation. Unlike mainland companies, Free Trade Zone companies have a number of restrictions on doing business.
It is important that funding for any investments be clearly seen to come from your own capital resources and not from third-parties, to avoid breaching regulations governing licensed business activities
Make sure that any funds credited to your company's bank account are in line with its registered licensed business activities. A bank account opened in the Emirates protects the confidentiality of the signatory, which avoids disclosure of information.
It is necessary to show banks that these funds are your own and are properly audited: by increasing the authorized capital, forming assets and reinvesting them in exchange activities, ICOS, and stock instruments.
The UAE does not generally restrict the international activities of investors. However, it has an open business environment that adheres to the accepted norms of KYC banking compliance and CRS arrangements. This means you should observe some simple rules to ensure transactions are legitimate and to maximize the advantages provided by this jurisdiction.

The global trend by authorities to exert greater control over business leaves fewer legal methods to minimize tax burdens, optimize cash flows, and allocate funds to accounts. However, the incorporation of a UAE local company provides businesses with a full set of tools for resolving such problems. It includes protection from automatic exchange of tax information, account data and assets under CRS.
The state transformed the UAE into a financial powerhouse by creating very attractive conditions for business development. Global governmental and institutional trust in the credibility of Emirati capital helped stimulate the expansion of Arab-originated investment and financial activities on international markets. The volume of financing for international projects amounted to $19 billion in 2019.
The global community does not consider the UAE to be a "gray” offshore zone with dubious tax practices. It is not included in any OECD or FATF black or gray list, has joined the standard on automatic exchange of tax information (CRS) and enjoys full trust and recognition from major international institutions.
