UAE Company Search
We can sometimes provide a UAE company search, depending on where the company is registered.
Company Searches have to be undertaken with a personal visit and in most cases little is available not even confirmation that the company is registered, when we can get info it will be limited and expensive.
A UAE company search includes:
- Company Name
- Free Zone registered in
- Licence Number
- Managing Director Name – where available
- 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.
UAE Company Documents
We can provide:
- 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
- Official documents from Sharjah Media City Free Zone
In the UAE, there are nearly 40 Free Zones including Offshores. When we have a request for a company search we contact many sources to get the information from them.
In addition, we actually have access to a database of 1M official documents from the above which helps us to do
- Director/ Shareholding Check
- Subsidiaries Check for companies
- Ultimate Beneficial Owner Check
- Financial Information
Considering the lack of information in the UAE within the following Emirates: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah, and Um Al Quwain including more than 30 independents Free Zones and 4 offshore Authorities.
Accordingly due to the mentioned limits the Director Shareholding Checks report in the UAE should not be considered as fully covered.
UAE Certificate of Incorporation
The United Arab Emirates Certificate of Incorporation is issued by the United Arab Emirates companies registry when a United Arab Emirates company is incorporated it includes the company name, company number, date of incorporation and states that a company is registered.
We cannot supply copies of this document, because requests have to come from the authorised signatory of the company.
UAE Certificate of Good Standing
Company documents requests have to come from the authorised signatory of the company, unless a Court Order is provided through the Dubai Courts. This means we are unable to provide Certificates of Good Standing for UAE registered companies
