Aston Advisory Group has established very strong relationships with many major banks in key jurisdictions. Each country has its own unique way of banking for both corporate and personal bank accounts, although they do all haver to follow very strict international banking laws too. We will help navigate this often very long and difficult process to ensure you get the best possible results. Typically, each bank will require up to 1.5KG of paperwork in a very specific format to allow their own risk desks the ability to gauge the risk you or your business may pose to the bank. Aston Advisory Group will not only check your personal profile, but that of your company and its structure, as often, the smallest mistake will result in a bank declining an application.
With 45 free zones currently in the UAE, and this number is growing, it is very difficult to understand the pros and cons of each for you and your company both now and in the future. Each free zone is different and has a different set of activities available. Free zones do change their products and pricing frequently, sometimes twice in a month. This, along with changes in UAE government regulations can make it impossible for an already busy businessperson to afford the time required to study the options properly.
Free zone companies are very popular as they give 100% foreign ownership and are relatively easy to start up.
Aston Advisory Group has extensive knowledge and experience with free zone company formations and can guide you to the free zone that best suits your end goal – we monitor the market very closely daily.
Often, the cheapest free zone looks very attractive for a new company looking to keep cashflow as close as is possible. However, by the time you’ve actually got everything you need, you soon see the original cost has increased 300%, and in the worst-case scenario, your company can’t operate as you’re unable to open a corporate account.
A UAE offshore company can be obtained without taking residency, this is often the main driver for why this structure is chosen. A UAE offshore company cannot do business inside of the UAE, so it’s ideal for companies that have clients everywhere else. Banking can be achieved in several different locations, even with an offshore company.
As many businesses have had to evolve to deal more online and not in person, ways to combat the issue of trust have become a huge problem to many. An ISO certification is a massive help to any business that takes global reputation seriously.
Aston Advisory Group can assist in the process to help get your firm certified with the best suited ISO certification available.
One of the biggest attractions to a mainland company, is the much stronger legal structure which has proven to give a greater level of confidence, to both local and international clients and certainly helps when opening corporate bank accounts. Once all documentation and paperwork is in hand, a corporate account can be opened in as little as 4 working days once the bank is satisfied.
Mainland companies in the UAE will typically require a local owner / sponsor, which historically was something some business owners did not like.
A mainland company has far fewer limitations on who or where it can do business with, which is why so many larger firms opt for this structure.
Mainland companies are now priced very competitively compared to just two years ago, in many cases these can now be delivered at lower costs than some free zones.
Aston Advisory Group understands that many company owners can’t be fixed to one location, many company owners have multiples of companies in several different countries. This often makes having an actual office a cost that simply doesn’t make any sense. To counter this, we provide a Dubai postal address along with a PO Box, telephone answering service with dedicated company telephone number with basic UAE company website. These products will not only save you a fortune in office rental costs but give the much-needed help for substance (Economic Substance Requirements) your company must have if it’s to have a solid reputation.
As many of our clients travel frequently, leaving their business to operate without the correct legal framework in place left these firms dead I the water. With bank accounts being frozen, companies unable to produce invoices, sign agreements with the right authority and so forth.
A power of attorney (POA) is a simple and cost-effective measure that allows the business owner to decide what the attorney is allowed and able to do whilst the owner is overseas. The pandemic lockdown was proof enough that a POA is worth the small amount of time and cost.
