Abu Dhabi LLC formation
Abu Dhabi has come a long from being a fishing village to become one of the leading Arab cities in terms of wealth generation. It has opened up a wide range of opportunities for the people in the country as well as for foreign expatriates. As the capital of UAE, Abu Dhabi has grown tremendously over the years and continues to offer opportunities.
Setting up an LLC (Limited Liability Company) in Abu Dhabi has remained the ideal choice of foreign expatriates. With its extremely business-friendly environment and government policies, Abu Dhabi and the whole of UAE is the most preferred location for incorporation of business.
The UAE government had recently made an amendment to the Commercial Companies Law (CCL), by offering 100% ownership of businesses to expatriates in the year 2020. Earlier, in order to set up a business in UAE, one had to have the support of a local sponsor who held at least 51% of the company’s share and only the remaining 49% ownership was allowed to foreign expatriates. With the introduction of the amendment, the rate of foreign direct investment in the country has rose considerably.
