Case Studies

Introduction

The case studies mentioned in, are real time scenarios happened with the clients. The actual names have been hidden for privacy reasons, hence every client mentioned is addressed as Mr. John

Mr. John, a British passport holder was the signing authority of a Freezone company. He also had dependent visas comprising of Wife and 2 kids. The company was scheduled for closure; hence he had left the country for good and joined another company in a different country. The new company had some business meetings scheduled in UAE for future prospects so Mr. John was the ideal candidate to visit them, since he was accustomed to the country’s rules and guidelines. The moment he entered UAE, the immigration department took over his passport.

Error :

  • He stayed outside the country for than 6 months
  • His dependent visas were not canceled
  • The company was not fully closed
  • The signing authorities visa is always the last for cancellation.

  • Get the final clearance to obtain the company closure letter
  • Get the signing authority’ (Mr. John) visa canceled
  • Obtain the passport back from the immigration
  • Obtain the company closure certificate

  • Even if you prefer staying out of UAE for long, make sure you visit once atleast on the 178th day from the day you exited the country.

Mr. John had to get his freezone license renewed. However, the original documents were misplaced. Also at the time of renewal we realized the activity he chose was actually did not meet his business needs. He approached a C.A in his home country who later connected Mr. John to a C.A in UAE.

Error :

  • Mr. John did not study the actual meaning of preferred activity
  • The C.A. in his home country gave him the same medicine without understanding his actual requirement
  • The Local C.A. did not bother understanding Mr. Johns requirement and blindly followed the home country’s C.A. direction and incorporated the company
  • The original company documents were kept with the local C.A.
  • Mr. John never took custody of the original company document

Solution :
  • Obtain a police clearance/NOC for the loss of document
  • Submit the same to the Freezone authority
  • Obtain the original company document
  • If the renewal date is near, simply try doing the renewal with the photocopies of the company document
  • If the authorities agree to renew the license with the photocopies, then the above 3 steps are not required
  • Apply for renewal and change of activity

Mr. John has this company in a Freezone jurisdiction. However, the company was not doing good enough business that it could sustain for the next year renewal. He chose to sell the company or simply leave it untouched (neither cancel- nor renewed).

Error :

  • Mr. John miss-interpreted the regulations of UAE with his home country company laws
  • He wanted to sell off his business(license), which he couldn’t. As there were no potential clients to generate revenue
  • A third party can actually get his own license rather than paying Mr. John for existing company license with no profit
  • Neither cancelled nor renewed the license

  • He will have to pay fine for the dues incurred for nonrenewal
  • The cost payed at this time will more than the actual cost of the cancellation.
