About the Flag

Located on the southern coast of the Arabian Gulf between Oman and Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates ("UAE") is a federation of seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qaiwan, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah). The Union is governed by a constitution which provides that the Union shall exercise sovereignty in all matters assigned to it under the Constitution whilst member Emirates shall exercise sovereignty over their own territories and territorial waters in all matters which are not within the jurisdiction of the Union. The President is the Head of State, and the Prime Minister is the Head of the Cabinet. The Cabinet enjoys executive authority. There is a unicameral Federal National Council exercising legislative authority subject to the powers of the Supreme Council of Rulers and the Constitution. The capital city is Abu Dhabi. The official language is Arabic, but English is widely used in business and commerce. The Constitution provides that Islamic Shariah shall be a main source of legislation. The UAE is a member of the Arab League, the United Nations, and the IMO.

The UAE has an open economy with one of the world's highest incomes per capita and with a sizable annual trade surplus. Its wealth is based on oil and gas output. Its chief export is crude oil and its major trading partner is Japan. The UAE's unit of currency is the dirham.

The registration of ships is mainly governed by Federal Law No. 26 of 1981 (UAE Commercial Maritime Law = UAE-CML). The competent authority for the registration of ships is the Marine Affairs Department at the Ministry of Communication in three main Ship Registration Offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.

Company Formation

The foundation of companies in the United Arab Emirates is governed by Federal Law No. 8 of 1984 (UAE-Commercial Companies Law, = UAE-CoL). The Law provides seven different forms of companies and partnerships.

Partnership Company
Partnership companies are governed by Art. 23-46 UAE-CoL and are limited to UAE nationals. Two or more partners are required who will be jointly liable for the company's obligations and debts. The company must be registered in the Commercial Register and requires a trade license.

Limited Partnership Company
Limited partnership companies are governed by Art. 47-55 UAE-CoL and comprise one or more partners who are jointly liable for the company's obligations and debts, and one or more partners whose personal liability is limited to their contributions to the company's share capital. All partners who are jointly liable must be UAE nationals. Only these partners may participate in the company's management although the partners with limited liability may take part in internal management within the limits specified in the articles of association. The company must be registered in the Commercial Register and requires a trade license.

Joint Venture Companies
Joint venture companies are governed by Art. 56-63 UAE-CoL and are defined as partnerships between two or more partners for sharing the profits or losses incurred from one or more commercial businesses undertaken by one of the partners in his own name. A joint venture company does not require a trade license nor is it required to be registered in the Commercial Register.

Public Joint-Stock Company
Public joint-stock companies are governed by Art. 64-214 UAE-CoL and require a minimum of 55% share participation by the general public. At least 51% of the shares are to be held by UAE nationals. The shareholder's liability is limited to the nominal value of their shares in the company's capital, i.e. their investment. The minimum share capital is AED 10 million. The company's organization, structure, and management are governed by law. The Board of Directors requires at least three but must not be more than 15 members. The majority of the Directors, as well as the Chairman, must be UAE nationals.

Private Joint-Stock Company
Private joint stock companies are governed by Art. 215-217 UAE-CoL and require at least three partners. The company's share may not be offered for public subscription. With few exceptions, private joint-stock companies are subject to the statutory provisions applicable to public joint-stock companies. The minimum capital is AED 2 million.

Limited Liability Company
Limited Liability Companies are governed by Art. 218-255 UAE-CoL and may be formed by a minimum of two and a maximum of 50 partners. The personal liability of the partners is limited to their shares in the company's capital. The minimum share capital shall not be less than AED 150,000 (in the Emirate Dubai not less than AED 300,000), divisible in shares of not less than AED 1,000. The full share capital must be deposited prior to the company's registration with a licensed UAE bank. 51% of the shares in the company are to be held by UAE nationals. With regard to the distribution of profits and losses and to the management, the law provides considerable flexibility.

Share Partnership Company
Share partnership companies are governed by Art. 256-272 UAE-Col and consist of one or more partners jointly and personally liable for the company's debts, and one or more partners whose liability is limited to their share in the company. All partners jointly liable must be UAE nationals.
Foreigners may also establish branches or in the Jebel Ali Free Zone so called "Free Zone Establishments."

Branches/Representative Offices
Foreign companies may establish branches or representative offices in the United Arab Emirates, which are fully owned and controlled by them pursuant to Art. 313-316 UAE-CoL. Branches and representative offices have no own legal personality but are dependent upon the existence of their mother company. The branch requires a UAE national to serve as "National Agent." This National Agent basically is appointed to comply with the law. He has no rights or obligations and is not involved in the branch's business unless expressly agreed in the National Agency Agreement or otherwise.

Jebel Ali
Free Zone Establishment
Free zone establishments ("FZEs") may be established in the Jebel Ali Free Zone located in the Emirate of Dubai. The FZE is subject to the FZE Law, the corresponding Implementing Regulations and other laws which have been issued exclusively for the formation of FZEs. An FZE is a legal entity and must be owned by one natural or legal person. The personal liability of the owner is limited to paid up capital. The minimum capital of an FZE is AED 1 million.

Taxation

No corporate income tax is imposed at the federal or emirate level, except with respect to branches of foreign banks (at the emirate level) and courier companies (at the federal level). Emirate-level taxes are imposed on the holders of petroleum concessions at rates specifically negotiated in the relevant concession agreements. There is no personal income tax.

Dubai, and certain other emirates, impose taxes on some goods and services (including, for example, sales of alcoholic beverages, hotel and restaurant bills and residential leases). However, there is no sales tax or VAT of general applicability in the UAE.

There are no currency exchange controls and no restrictions on the remittance of funds, except for restrictions on transactions involving Israeli parties or currency.

The UAE has concluded numerous double taxation treaties in recent years. The total number of treaties in force or under negotiation is 22, including but not limited to treaties in China, France, Germany, India, Poland, and Turkey. Some major countries like the United Kingdom and the United States are not yet among the signatories (save that there is a limited treaty with the USA relating to income arising from International Sea/Air transport).

Registration and Documentation

Generally, only permanent registrations are available. Provisional registrations for six months or for one voyage may be granted under exceptional circumstances (e.g., the documentation and details required for the permanent registration are not complete, but will be available later). Depending on the types of vessel, the following documents are to be submitted to one of the registration offices located throughout the Emirates:
• Application document
• Proof of ownership (Bill of Sale for existing vessels; Builder's Certificate for newbuildings), fully authenticated.
• Documentation to prove the correctness of the details given in the Application document

Documents may be submitted in English with an Arabic translation. The Arabic translation must be made by a translator licensed by the UAE Ministry of Justice. Only copies of the documents will be kept by the Registration office, but the originals must be presented for verification.

Prior to the final registration, the particulars of the application shall be circulated to all registration offices in the UAE, and the registration office handling the application shall at the expense of the applicant publish an abstract of the application particulars in two daily newspapers. Within 60 days of the publication, third parties who consider their rights being violated by the registration may file an objection against the registration with the registration office where the application has been submitted. In such case, the registration shall be suspended and the objecting party is required to file a case with the Civil Court within eight days. However the applicant may request the Civil Court to order the registration office to issue a provisional registration for the period the objection is pending.

Bareboat Charter Registration

Bareboat charter registration into or out of the UAE is not possible.
