For any business that is based on providing a service rather than trading a specific product, then it is likely they will need a professional License, issued from the Department of Economic Development (DED)

In setting up a professional firm, 100% foreign ownership and sole proprietorship are permitted. In order to set up a professional company set up in Dubai, the local service agent is required, especially when it comes to obtaining the documents such as licenses, immigration visas and the labour cards.

What is a Professional License?

This type of License is given to individual entrepreneurs who provide professional license activities i.e. services of any kind. These can be business service providers designers, artists, etc. However, the enterprise needs to be owned by a single person to obtain a professional license in Dubai. If the ownership rests with more than one person then the organization will be considered a civil corporation.
