Not at all.
You only have to be in UAE for 1 day every 6 months but its actually every 175 days. You can get 1 or 3 year visa just need to be there for one day to keep it active every 175 days.
Personal account can be opened in immediately and corporate account in 2 weeks. This can be done in one meeting at the bank but you have to go there.
Minimum balance if they request it to be about 500 max.
Company can be set up before you go there so you are only opening bank accounts and residency procedures which take 5 days max.
are you sure, why would you do accounting then?You can spend as you like, mixing company and personal doesn't matter because tax is not applicable.
The whole point of accounting is to confirm how much tax is liable. You would get in trouble in other countries for buying a new bed out of company money.
Since no tax is applicable you can buy what you want and your accounts filed will just show it as an expense. You can spend your money anywhere in the world. The accounting element is more for the authorities to have actual figures to boast about.
Unless you tell someone or are careless, no one knows you own the company.
Why not just switch to being a freelancer in UAE then no audit required or company structure and work from your own account.
Whats the best freezone currently?
The LLP wouldn’t be a company...?
So in theory you could just get a Freelance visa and do all business in UK LLP and store all money in the UK LLP account.
Yes - or is there any downside to that? Would you have to bank in the UAE?
You could probably also just pay yourself “dividends” from the LLP? I don’t think it’s illegal to be an unsuccessful graphic designer in the UAE, who has a lot of dividend income from a UK LLP (or some other company)...?
The only potential issue would probably be if you work from the UAE with something that you’re not licensed for (you manage the LLP from there). But if no work for the LLP is done from the UAE, why would there be a problem?
But if you want to build a serious business, you need a company.
Any idea if they require Good conduct certificate for freelance visa? I know its not required for Freezone investor visa.
