Opening an account for a local company in the banks of the United Arab Emirates

Most investors open accounts for their companies at their place of registration, in this case in the United Arab Emirates.

Having decided to open an account for the UAE company with a UAE bank, you should be aware, that approval by banks may depend on a number of factors:

  • Banks in this jurisdiction will pay attention to the area, in which the company is registered (mainland, Free Zone or a low tax jurisdiction).
  • Your business will also play an important role.
  • A legal entity, for which the opening the account is planned, must have a real local office and real employees.
  • To open a corporate account in the UAE, a personal presence of the signatory is required (a procedure usually takes one day).
