If you are a businessman who already has a number of established businesses in your own country but you are currently looking to start up a new business venture in the middle east, you will need to find a business professional or a business consultant in the country in which you hope to set up your business to give you advice about the laws and rules associated with starting a business in that country.
Rules and regulations
Although you may be a very successful business person in your own country, it is important that you do not assume this will be the same in Dubai. There are different rules, regulations, laws and taxes that you have to consider that will make the business that you have their very different to the business that you have in your own country. You also need to keep in mind that the target audience that you have in Dubai will be different to the target audience in your own country and therefore a product or service that is popular in your country may not be as popular abroad. You will need to go online and do research about how to setup business in Dubai and the pros and cons of doing so.
Dubai is the business hub of the world and if you choose the right kind of business, you are almost guaranteed to be successful however if you choose a business that is not suitable for that country, you can also end up losing a lot of money. You can consult with a business professional who is already in Dubai to find out how to setup business in Dubai and the laws associated with doing so.
As an example, as Dubai is a Muslim country it has strict laws about clothing and alcohol and therefore starting up an alcohol related business in Dubai, even if you get permission to do so will not be successful and will end up losing a lot of money. On the other hand, in Dubai fashion is a big part of everyone’s life although the clothes worn are usually fairly modest and therefore, if you were to start up your own Fashion or clothing store in Dubai, it has a very big chance of being successful provided you do a lot of prior research about the types of clothing worn in Dubai. Much of the clothing worn in Dubai is similar to the clothing worn in India and yet, in India this clothing is sold at a fraction of the cost that it is sold in Dubai.
