What is the best option for a quick entry into the UAE market?

With the uncertainty over the potential impact of Brexit, companies may be looking at new jurisdictions into which to export their product or service.

One such attractive jurisdiction for foreign direct investment (FDI) is the UAE. Many companies look at this market to benefit from the multitude of high value opportunities.

But, with that optimism to clinch significant contracts comes many questions about the best way to enter the market and engage with target clients. This is particularly true of SMEs that may not have the budget to establish a new entity from the get go.

Since 2002, Links Group has assisted companies and individuals understand the best route into their chosen market. We offer a suite of solutions based entirely on your needs. Once engaged we conduct research and feasibility studies to analyse the market, obtain key information and gather valuable insight into whether there is a need for the service or product and what the best initial setup solution for you would be.

A popular route into the UAE is to promote and market your services to target clients and once successfully winning the initial contract you can continue to build the infrastructure of the local operation from obtaining a license to hiring employees.

No matter what point of the set-up cycle you are at, it is imperative to have a professional, reputable and experienced professional company partner as your on the ground “go-to” providing assistance and guidance for your UAE operation. This will allow you to focus on what you do best… delivering your product or service.
