Corporate Bank Services UAE

To run a successful business or trade, a corporation must have a bank account. Commercial banks in the United Arab Emirates are categorized into 22 Emirati banks and 26 Foreign Banks. The Central Bank of the UAE is the autonomous organization in charge of supervising these banks' financial stability. These banks control the commerce of all onshore and offshore Dubai corporations undertaking business in the United Arab Emirates.

Depending on the size and nature of the business, opening a bank account in the UAE is a relatively simple procedure for freezone and mainland company formation. However, the paperwork and documents required to open a bank account in the UAE necessitate the services of companies that specialize in bank account opening in the UAE. This can help save corporations a great deal of time and money.

Business Banking – FAQs

Is it possible for a non-resident to open a business or personal bank account in the UAE?

Yes, non-residents can open an individual or business bank account, subject to some limitations by the bank. For online transfers, they will usually only enable the use of internet banking services. Non-residents will be denied credit or debit cards by the vast majority of banks.

Is there a minimum holding requirement in the UAE for banks?

A minimum balance of up to a certain limit (dependent upon the bank) should be maintained in the account. Usually, the range is between AED 20,000 and AED 150,000. A nominal fee will be charged to the users' accounts if the balance plummets to below average.

In the UAE, how long does it take to open a bank account?

The time duration differs from one bank to the next. There is a 2-4 week window for LLC and Dubai Free Zone enterprises in the UAE to register an account.

With which financial institutions do you collaborate?

We work with all banks operating locally and internationally. All the banks we collaborate with provide international-currency accounts and digital banking services. Depending upon the nature of the bank account, most banks we are working with offer debit cards.

Is it necessary for me to meet with the banker in person?

Yes, if the account is being opened in the Emirates. We have relationships with overseas banks to gather and authenticate the signatures of our clients. On the other hand, the client will be responsible for providing all of the information and papers requested by the bank.

How can I handle and operate the bank account if FREEZONER provides corporate director services to my company?

At FREEZONER, we assert full control of the company's bank account. Even if your dedicated administrator is on leave, we will supply numerous approved signatories to the account to ensure that your banking needs are met. Our standard terms and conditions of business govern the interaction between the beneficial owner and the corporate director. The authorized signatories will never act independently. They will only act if the beneficial owner provides specific written consent and instructions.
