Capital requirements to start a company

Capital requirements vary as per the legal form of a company.  There is a need for AED 30 million as minimum capital, for a PJSC, while for a PrJSC it is to be paid in full such that it is less than AED 5 million.


The UAE companies’ law for commercial businesses do not specify a capital, but it is specified in the MOA (Memorandum of Association), and there must be enough capital to fulfill the business setup purpose.


For foreign companies establishing in the UAE a Limited Liability Company (LLC), they should take guidance on the current practices of the emirate relevantly regarding the minimum share capital.
