Business Activities Permitted under 100% Foreign Ownership in the UAE

We have previously covered the significant change made to the UAE’s Commercial Companies Law (Federal Law No. 2 of 2015, the “CCL”), allowing 100% foreign ownership of onshore companies in the UAE. This historic change came into effect on June 1, 2021, and marks a significant shift away from the previous default requirement of majority ownership of an onshore company by UAE national(s).

The Department of Economic Development (DED) of each Emirate has the discretion to specify which business activities will be open to 100% foreign ownership. So far, Abu Dhabi DED and Dubai DED have each published an extensive ‘positive’ list of cross-sector commercial and industrial activities that are eligible for 100% foreign ownership (over 1,100 in Abu Dhabi and over 1,000 in Dubai). In addition, Ajman DED has confirmed that it has approved over 1,000 activities for 100% foreign ownership, and Sharjah DED has advised that it will implement its full foreign ownership policy in June 2021.

The business activities that fall under each category are listed below.

The foreign ownership restrictions in the UAE have widely been viewed as the most limiting factor in setting up a business in the mainland. The significant limitation of those restrictions is, therefore, a positive and exciting step forward and will be of interest to those with existing businesses onshore, as well as those thinking of starting a business, who can now own and operate onshore companies in the UAE with greater autonomy, control and certainty over their business than before.

The changes follow a number of recent business-friendly reforms across the UAE which aim to boost its competitive edge, facilitate doing business and make it an even more attractive destination for global investors, entrepreneurs and talent.

If you are interested in turning this reform into a business opportunity then we at Commitbiz can assist you with it. Right from business incorporation to office space, we cover everything. Our consultants have years of experience in this field and can make the process hassle-free. Contact us today for more information.
