Hi I would like advise for setting a up company that I need only for visa
Don't intend to be involved in any activity , though I know something has to be mentioned (any suggestions ?)

The benefits / features I would like are:

-2 visas
-no fixed office or virtual desk
-No requirements to File Accounts
-No requirement to File Annual Return
-No Audit Requirements
-Cheap costs & renewal
-Share capital can be highas long it can be withdrawn after company formation

I would like the formation of the company to be as such:

-shareholder 1 - also director in the company.
-shareholder 2 - can be secretary or manager in the company if necessary.

Thanx in advance for the help & responses !!

Look I am only inquiring , not a crime ?
I believe it is 100% legal !!

Secondly a lot of people in dubai are there with the options I mentioned as they don't want to be under a investor visa which I was told is valid for 6-12 months & needs to be renewed accordingly & also u need to go to the sponsor for all your noc documents .

Thanx for your reply The Rascal ,

But do I need to take a plexi desk/flexi desk or virtual desk with them?

I don't need it & never intend to use it.

Hi,
Last time I spoke to the people at Creative Fujairah Freezone in the Iridium centre (next to Pan Emirates in Al Barsha, Dubai) - you did not need to take an office or hot desk from them.
Cheers
Steve

Let me know if anyone has any questions.
Hi Marc - well aware this comment was posted nearly a year ago - but hoping the offer is still good (or indeed if anyone else is able to help it would be much appreciated)

I am in the middle of researching the best way in which to incorporate a company here in Dubai (onshore, or freezone).

I will be marketing services directly to customers on the mainland (big red sign saying onshore going off...i know..). These services will be fulfilled contracted labour services (or indeed other service providers on the mainland - with the correct business activity codes) - and i will collect payment.

Think 'foodonclick' - but with a captive client base and not food!

I have been taken amazed by the lack of clarity from business formation companies as to whether or not this kind of company can be in a freezone - and if not, I have been further amazed by the cost of setting up a company with a credible business service provider (set-up fee exceeding 30k!!, on top of DED, sponsor, office space).

Really hoping someone can offer me some advise here
