UAE Company Search Report

Limited information is available in the UAE.

A UAE company search includes:

  • Company Name
  • Free Zone registered in
  • Licence Number

  • Shareholder Name – where available
  • Company Details – not from the registry/ free zone – if available

Private companies in United Arab Emirates are not required to publish or disclose balance sheets, this information is strictly confidential and not available from other sources. Our company search report does not include the latest filed Directors’ Report and Accounts.

The following UAE Emirates have limited accessible information : Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah, and Um Al Quwain including more than 30 independents Free Zones and 4 offshore Authorities.

Due to the limited detail available in the UAE  address, nationality or share percentage details of the director/shareholder may not be disclosed.

UAE Company Documents

In the UAE, there are nearly 40 Free Zones including offshores. When we have a request for a company search we contact many sources in order to compile the report.

We can provide where available:

  • Official documents from Dubai Department of Economic & development (non Free Zone companies)
  • Official documents from Abu Dhabi Department of Economic & development (All companies registered in Abu Dhabi chamber including Free Zones)
  • Official documents from Fujairah Creative City Free zone

UAE Certificate of Incorporation

The United Arab Emirates Certificate of Incorporation is issued by the United Arab Emirates companies registry  it includes the company name, company number, date of incorporation and states that the company is registered.

We cannot  supply this document, unless you are an  authorised signatory of the target company.

UAE Certificate of Good Standing

A Certificate of Good Standing confirms a UAE company has a status of Good Standing with the RAK Investment Authority under the International Business Company Act 2006.

Company Document requests have to come from the authorised signatory of the company, unless a Court Order is provided through the Dubai Courts. We are therefore unable to provide Certificates of Good Standing for UAE registered companies.
