We offer a wide variety of license types covering an array of activities:

Setting up a company and carrying out any business in UAE requires you to obtain a valid business license. Similarly, to set up a company in Ras Al Khaimah, you need to obtain a business license in the emirate. Before applying for a business license, however, you need to decide on the activities you will be conducting through your company and the type of structure you need to incorporate – sole establishment, Limited Liability Company (LLC) or holding company.

Whether you are a startup or an established company willing to expand your business in Ras Al Khaimah, or an entrepreneur who wants to diversify your products and services under one entity and operate freely across the country, there are business licenses which allow you to carry out more than one business activity. For instance, the RAKEZ Dual License has the provision to combine commercial and professional activities under one business license. With this, you can seamlessly operate your business in UAE, on the mainland as well as in free zones. The RAKEZ dual business license includes a UAE free zone license as well as a UAE free zone company branch business license.

If you need any support with choosing the right business license, or the business set-up process including compiling and submitting required documents or making payments, the company formation experts at RAKEZ will assist you through the entire journey of obtaining your business license and carrying out your business activities in UAE.
