UAE Local Market (LLC)
Limited Liability Company (LLC) is the most common form business in UAE. A Limited Liability Company can be formed by a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 50 shareholders whose liability is limited to their shares in the businesses capital.

Most companies with foreign partners have opted for the Limited Liability Company, due to the fact that this is the only option that will give maximum legal ownership i.e. 49% to the expatriates for a local business. As it is mandatory to have a UAE national as a partner in the LLC (51% shareholding) prospective investor has the option to choose the one UAE national (sponsor) as a partner in the company.

LLC is flexible and differential profit sharing arrangements also possible. This permits the foreign investor a great edge as 51% legal equity is with local partner.
