sorry to bother you @MiddleEuroAsia
but you seem to know some stuff in UAE in advance, are you aware of this change?
Yes, there is a national economic register for UAE that has been published recently. You can check it by using either the trade license number or business name.
However, it seems like some businesses are included while others are not.
For instance, I have a business with an Emirati partner, but it did not show up in the database. It may indicate that the system is not yet optimized, or there could be specific criteria that determine which businesses get included in the database. So, there might be some missing pieces of information that we need to know
anyway, I'll look into it further and see if I can find any additional information about the criteria they use to include businesses in the register. If I come across anything useful, I'll let you know.
