I see lots of people looking for a company set-up just to get UAE residency. Most have no actual business in the UAE itself. Nowadays all what you need is a connected computer to do your work remotely. So if anyone falls into this category please PM me. I am looking for people to partner with in a company set-up. 5 partners the cost would be very low, less than 10000 AED including visa cost.

In my opinion, before opening any office or even getting a license to run the business, get in touch with some friends who can help you with billing. Get some clients who can give you some revenue. When you see yourself on your feet and making some money- getting a license is just a matter of paper work.

Best of luck

I agree with the basis of what you are saying, but would just like to point out that if one were to do that here, they would inadvertently expose themselves towards a real risk of trouble. Doing any kind of business without the relevant permissions / paperwork / licenses carries with it some really stiff penalties ... surveying the market etc is definitely advisable but not conducting actual business ....

Of course, I am sure there exist people who don't follow the rules and get away with it, but the risk-reward ratio there is not in favor of reward ....
