Company Share

A company’s share capital is the total number of shares owned by all shareholders multiplied by the unit value of each share. The standard minimum value of each share is AED 1,000. The shareholders usually hold a total number of 50 shares to reach the standard minimum company share capital of AED 50,000. (i.e. 1,000 share value x 50 shares = 50,000 share capital)The 'Value of Each Share' field is the unique value of each share in the company.

Based on your shareholding structure, your company type will be auto-populated as one of the following company types:

Individual: Owned by single or multiple shareholders that are natural persons. Joint Venture: A joint venture is a company owned by a combination of individual(s) [i.e. natural person(s)] and company(ies) or owned by more than one company.

Subsidiary: A subsidiary is an entity owned 100% by another company ("Parent"). The subsidiary company may perform different business activities than its Parent, and may have a different company name.

Branch: A branch is legally part and extension of its parent company and does not have a legal identity distinct from its parent company. In practice, a branch is selected if a parent company wishes to set up a new office in a new location for an existing company, carrying out some or all of the business activities of the parent. The liabilities and assets of the branch are not distinct from the parent company. The name of the branch and its activities must be the same as the parent company. A branch does not have its own Memorandum and Articles of Association. A holding company cannot set up a branch at DMCC; however, it can own shares in a new company.

Based on the selected license type, an array of business activities will be available. You may select up to 3 activities under the same license for a fee. To do so, the 3 activities must have the same first two digits (i.e. Activity 1: 7299-03 and Activity 2: 7214-26).
