EXPO 2020 IS COMING TO DUBAI –
BE PART OF HISTORY

1. AFFORDABLE SETUP:

Despite being home to some of the biggest names in the business, Dubai Studio City offers affordable licence packages to suit most budgets. A trade licence at DSC starts at around AED 15,000 on top of which you’ll be required to pay for an office lease agreement and monthly rent. If you’re going it alone, DSC also issues freelance permits and packages which usually come in at around AED 25,000 plus a yearly renewal fee.

2. FLEXIBLE OFFICE OPTIONS:

While office space is mandatory at Dubai Studio City, a flexible option is also on offer if you don’t wish to commit to permanent premises. Simply apply for the DSC freelancers permit as part of a flexi-desk package and you’ll get access to desk space, office equipment, meeting room hire, and reception cover on an ad-hoc basis.

3. WORK ALONGSIDE THE BEST:

Dubai Studio City is not just another production lot. Set up here and you’ll be working with the largest sound stage in the Middle East alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, including CNN, BBC and Reuters. Working in such a creative environment alongside household names offers countless networking and collaboration opportunities, not to mention prestige.

4. VISA OPTIONS:

One of the many reasons why DSC is popular with larger companies is that it allows for company formation with multiple visas. There’s no upper limit on the number you can apply for, however, this is linked to the size of your office – the rule is one visa per 80 sq ft.

5. EASILY SPONSOR DEPENDANTS:

As well as making it easy to apply for visas for you and your employees, by registering your business in DSC, you’ll also be able to sponsor dependants for their visas too. Whether you wish to sponsor a spouse, child or domestic staff, the process is relatively easy – entry permit, status adjustment, medical fitness test, then Emirates ID registration and visa stamping. As this is such an important process, it’s a good idea to get advice from an expert in setting up UAE free zone businesses. This ensures that before you start an application, both you and those you’re hoping to sponsor meet the entry criteria.

6. STRAIGHTFORWARD AUDITING PROCESS:

Though not currently mandatory, Dubai Studio City is set to implement auditing requirements from next year – however, they are incredibly straightforward. As of 2018, DSC registered companies simply need to submit to an annual audit.

7. NOC REQUIREMENTS:

When setting up in Dubai Studio City, the person in charge (PIC) is required to provide a no objection certificate (NOC) from their current employer if applicable. However, this is not required of other shareholders.

8. SET UP WITH MULTIPLE SHAREHOLDERS:

As well as its flexible visa options, there’s another reason for Dubai Studio City’s popularity with large, multinational business: it allows for company setup with multiple shareholders. These can be individuals, corporate entities or a combination of the two.

9. LOCATION:

Dubai’s Studio City’s incredible location make it the perfect home for international entrepreneurs and businesses. Set in between the busy E311 and E611 highways, the free zone is less than 30 minutes from both of Dubai’s International Airports. For those who like to work among the hustle and bustle of a busy city, Downtown Dubai and Jumeirah Beach are also within easy reach.
