Mastering Corporate Structuring in Dubai: Expert Insights

In Dubai, businesses are meticulously formed in accordance with the Commercial Code and the Companies Act. The success of any business, regardless of its form (LLC, branch, representative office, subsidiary, or sole proprietorship), hinges on its structure and the seamless functioning of its departments. Our adept team of lawyers in Dubai stands ready to elucidate the legal intricacies of business registration in the emirate.

Important Departments in a Dubai Company

A Limited Liability Company in Dubai can be established either with local entrepreneurs owning 51% of the company or within Dubai’s free zones for 100% ownership. While this is the most favored business form for registration in Dubai, it’s vital for owners to pay close attention to corporate structuring from the very inception. This includes departments like:

  • The Board of Directors
  • HR Department
  • Communication Division
  • Marketing Department
  • Sales Department
  • Legal Department
  • Accounting Department

Given the growing trend of businesses venturing into the online market, it’s often advisable to incorporate a dedicated digital department.

For freelancers aspiring to operate in Dubai, obtaining a Dubai freelance visa is entirely legal as long as the requisite license is secured. This facilitates operations as a self-employed or sole trader, utilizing your own name for business purposes, as opposed to a trade license, which necessitates a freelance permit.

Responsibilities of Managers in a Dubai Company

The board of directors assumes the pivotal role of managing the business on behalf of the owners. However, they operate within the framework of directives and tasks set forth by the proprietors. Among the responsibilities of directors in a Dubai business are:


  • Providing comprehensive task-related information to employees
  • Ensuring shareholders’ directives are diligently executed
  • Vigilantly overseeing the activities of the company’s staff
  • Offering support in resolving any issues that may arise
  • Ensuring all tasks are executed in accordance with the owners’ directives

Tasks of Other Divisions in a Company

  • Human Resource Department: Oversees employee matters from contract preparation to registration with Dubai authorities. Additionally, this department often handles proposing and conducting interviews for prospective candidates.
  • Accounting Department: Maintains control over all financial activities, including bookkeeping, transactions, and payroll.
  • Marketing Division: Develops various strategies to promote the company’s activities in the market.
