A Limited Liability Company Formation in Abu Dhabi is the best option for investors. HLB HAMT professionals are delighted to help you through each step of company formation. In this blog, we discuss Limited Liability Formation in Abu Dhabi and its features.

    What is an LLC?

    LLC Business Formation in Abu Dhabi is the most widely used structure for businesses looking to do business outside of a UAE Free Zone. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a formation in which the liability of its shareholders is limited to their capital shares.

    UAE Commercial Companies Laws Changes Concerning Limited Liability Companies

    • The New CCL was first published as Federal Law No. 2 of 2015 concerning Commercial Corporations in July 2015.
    • As a result, it has replaced the previous Commercial Corporations Federal Law No. 8 of 1984.
    • Due to the new UAE CCL Commercial Corporations Law, previous legislation has undergone significant revisions.

    The latest regulations for establishing an LLC in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, are as follows:

    Shareholder Information

    An LLC’s stockholders’ data, including dates of birth, should be listed in the articles. The previous legislation did not include this as a condition.

    Sole Shareholder

    An LLC’s sole shareholder might be a single individual or a business organization. To incorporate an LLC in Abu Dhabi, UAE, the previous legislation needs a minimum of two stockholders.

    Directors and Managers

    LLCs in Abu Dhabi are now able to nominate more than five Managers or Directors, and they need to amend their Articles to reflect the increase in governance positions.

    Share Pledges

    Limited Liability Company shareholders are permitted to pledge their shares. The pledges must be made in compliance with the establishment’s articles of the company, and they must be notarized.


    Abu Dhabi’s Limited Liability Companies are required to adhere to international accounting standards. In the past, the Old CCL permitted the use of any standard.
