Basically, companies may be incorporated in Mainland, in a Free Zone, or in one of the Offshore Zones. Companies are set-up as an LLC, a subsidiary, a branch, a representative office, or a civil company.
Until recently, the UAE did not allow foreign ownership of local (mainland) companies.
This was the reason why most of the foreign investors incorporated their companies in Free Zones where 100 % foreign ownership is guaranteed, and things seem to be less complicated, also because procedures and most official documents are in English language.
Now, the restrictions regarding ownership have gone for most industries, what makes mainland companies more attractive than before.
