There has never been a better time for a company set up in Dubai. This is a statement that would probably have held at any time in the previous decade or so, but right now the signs are mainly promising. Hardly a week goes by without the announcement or delivery of another ambitious project and the UAE’s growth projection suggests that it’s a bandwagon worth jumping on right now. If you are thinking of joining this boat, the good news is that the business incorporation in Dubai is a relatively simple process with strong incentives.
But sometimes starting your own company in a foreign land can be hectic, time-consuming, and stressful. But what if you could get the paperwork done over a cup of coffee? Sounds exciting, right?
Well, the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai launched a DED Café where you can do precisely that and much more. Dubai’s DED Café is one such initiative that makes it easy for inhabitants and citizens to start the business activities in the comfort of the café.
What is DED Café?
Dubai Economy in partnership with the High-Level Government Transaction Centre launched DED Café in 2018 under the commands of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The café is in line with Sheikh Mohammed’s aim to provide improved customer involvement to transform amenity outlets across all government departments in Dubai into customer happiness centres. The DED Café is an outsourced service centre for Dubai Economic Department and offers various DED facilities.
A group of around 20 staff members notify visitors of the procedures they need to follow for their explicit request and help them through the procedures and transactions.
Available Business Services
The DED Café offers many services apart from which there is a co-working space to entrepreneurs and start-ups adjacent to the café. There are no secret costs if you apply for your trade license or any other DED facility, as it is an authorised DED Service Centre. The other services offered are –
- Business Registration, including instant licensing service and trader license
- New business registration
- Business trade license
- General trading license
- Serviced office
- Desk space
- Meeting rooms
The Café has modern technology to provide company license holders with access to business registration and licensing services as well as the flexibility and convenience of a café atmosphere and assistance from qualified specialists.
The desk space, office space as well as meetings rooms are offered at a less price. There are packages available for booking these rooms for a month. Businesspersons can also have their transactions completed over a cup of coffee or from the comfort of their cars, and even earn loyalty points for the time spent in the Café.
Where is the Café Located?
The DED café is located in Jumeirah.
It is not difficult to find the café, as it is right opposite the famous Jumeirah mosque and adjacent to the Jumeirah Strip Mall near La Mer beach on Jumeirah Beach Road.
We at Commitbiz also provide business setup services in the UAE. If you feel that the DED café is also a cumbersome process, then we can help you with the business registration. Contact us today - you are just one click away from starting your business in Dubai.
