Virtual Office in Dubai

Virtual Office in Dubai

What if you wanted the benefits of a real office, but didn’t want to commit to office space? What if your business contacts and leads are not willing to pursue business with you because you have just a PO Box or your home address on your contact details?

What if your mobile number is not sufficient enough to gain credibility among your business partners?

Many studies have shown that people wish to do business with credible parties – and one thing that lends credibility is the physical presence of a businessman, either individual or corporate.

What if you want an office solution that says you can obtain an office address, allow your staff to use the office resources (like printers, meeting rooms etc), allow you to quote the details on all your communication, and yet go low on your annual expenses as compared to a regular office space?

Welcome to the virtual office solution in Dubai and other emirates in UAE.

Office spaces in Dubai

Dubai is a leading financial and commercial destination in the Middle East and many companies choose to base their business there. The United Arab Emirates has plenty of advantages for investors, including modern offices and work spaces.

Depending on the areas where they want to locate their business, investors in Dubai will need to be prepared to pay extra for a central location in the city. Prices for office spaces differ according to the free zone in which they are based or if they are not located in such a special area. 

The price for renting an office is generally calculated per one year and the real estate agent will also give its own fee if you choose to work with an agent. An office of almost 700 sqm in Bur Dubai (a historic district in the city) will cost around 98,700 AED per year and larger offices, for example, those of 1,000 sqm, will have prices at around 150,000 AED per year.

Our lawyers in Dubai can help you make sure that the offices you find for rent have fair prices and that the agent will make sure to provide you with an adequate rent agreement. Our agents can also help you with company incorporation in Dubai in a time frame of 1-3 weeks.

People from all over the world are drawn to the UAE’s prosperous economy and welcoming business environment to pursue investment opportunities or launch firms. The UAE maintains a distinct visa category known as the Dubai investment visa or partner visa for people who have the financial means to move here. 

The renting process for offices in Dubai

Once you have decided to rent a certain office space, you will most likely have to pay a deposit for space. By doing this, you take the office off the market until the documents for the lease are ready. The real estate agent will prepare the documents needed to conclude the rent agreement. Any negotiations regarding the contractual terms should be settled before the final lease agreement is signed by the two parties.

Should you enter into any disputes with a landlord over unfair rent changes or other issues, our attorneys in Dubai can help you resolve any differences. We provide a wide range of legal services both for companies and individuals, including company incorporation in Dubai.
