CIVIL COMPANY / PROFESSIONAL LICENSE

A professional service company also known as a Civil Company is the most common form of civil entity used by foreign investors / professional individuals in Dubai and Sharjah to provide professional services. A professional license is awarded to skilled professional having the relevant qualifications and experience.

The primary benefit of establishing a professional services company is that such an entity may be 100% foreign owned. However, it is mandatory to appoint a UAE national as a Local Service Agent (LSA), whose role is only to assist in obtaining the required approvals from the various Government Departments in order to obtain the license.

A professional service company owned by one individual can be formed as a Sole Establishment, while, in case there are two or more partners, the legal form would be a Civil Works Company.
