The majority of Dubai LLC licenses require at least 51% of the shareholding to be locally owned. This means that the majority of every local Dubai business set up is Emirati owned and controlled. In the event a foreign person or company wishes to open a company or branch locally, they can choose to select a local person to act as Sponsor to hold the 51% shareholding.Choosing the right sponsor is crucial to the harmony of the business relationship between the founder and sponsor.
