Advantages of Company Formation in DED Sharjah

Freedom to Operate Anywhere

Since it gives you the freedom to conduct business anywhere, it is strongly advised that you obtain a Sharjah Mainland License. Enterprises with headquarters located in the United Arab Emirates are allowed to trade and do business in all free zones as well as inside the nation.

Ability to Work with Government Bodies

Businesses with licenses from the mainland may be working on government contracts. The UAE government, which frequently requires qualified contractors for multi-million dollar projects, gives you the chance to compete on high-risk, high-return projects.

No Visa Limitations

Companies with a business license on the UAE mainland are allowed to extend their visa issuing capacity. More real estate may eventually be required, but growing the business is much easier.
Free Zones additionally allow for the use of dual licensing structures (Mainland and Free Zone).

Financial Viability

Companies with a Mainland Sharjah license have the same benefits as those with a Free Zone license. This holds true for not having to pay taxes as well. It’s also important to keep in mind that starting a business without a minimum capital requirement is possible with a Sharjah Mainland License.
