Why would I want to open a business in the UK?

The UK is a thriving marketplace and is the 6th biggest economy in the world. The government have made a big effort to encourage new businesses and the infrastructure is very accessible to non-resident entrepreneurs. It can seem daunting to open a business remotely and in a market and country that you may not be familiar with. But the process can be surprisingly easy. In fact. with the right tools, it's easy for anyone who lives outside of the country to set up a company from overseas. By using this guide, we'll show you how!

How do I set up a company in the UK?

You can set up a company in the UK from the United Arab Emirates Online. Here are the steps you’ll be required to complete: First, you have to register your business name and logo with Companies House before you start the process. You will then be asked to complete an online application form for your new company, which needs to be signed by two directors (you can appoint someone as a director later). Finally, after paying a fee and uploading some documents, you will receive notification that your company has been registered by Companies House within five working days.

What is the main difference between an LLC and a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)?

The main difference between an LLC and a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is that LLCs are governed by state law, while LLPs are governed by UK law.

In which cases can we recommend you to open an LLP?

An LLP is a good option if you want to start a business with other people. You can set up an LLP with as few as two members and it will still be considered a separate legal entity from its members. LLPs are also recommended when you want to run your business as a partnership without personal liability for the company's debts.

Which documents are required?

The process of setting up a company in the UK from UAE is easy, but it requires you to have certain documents. You need:

  • Application form for company registration
  • Your passport or national ID card
  • Company name and address (if provided by our consultants)
  • Bank statements evidencing that you have at least GBP 10,000 in order to register an LLPC. If your funds are held outside of the UK, then we require copies of bank statements showing this as well as evidence that they are accessible from UAE.
