Anyone in Dubai or in the UAE in general who would like to set up a mainland company is required to obtain what's called a Professional Licence. Which is one of the three types of trade licenses currently available - (Commercial, Industrial, Professional)
A professional license is a requirement for anyone who wants to offer professional services in the UAE. This license establishes that the skilled individual is fully legal and authorized to provide such services in any kind of profession. Individuals who want to work as freelancers must first obtain a professional license if they plan to legally offer their services to clients in the UAE. There are certain businesses that may fit in both commercial and professional licenses. That is why it is advisable to consult a business setup company such as ITQAN before applying for a trade license.
In addition, another benefit of having a professional license in Dubai is that it offers 100% ownership of their company to the foreign investor and there is no need to find a local sponsor, even though they are operating outside a free zone. Interested investors have the option to choose between these two legal entities: Sole Establishment and Civil Company for their new investment in Dubai.
While a professional license allows for 100% foreign ownership and 100% capital repatriation, the business must appoint a local service agent, who completes the legal formalities but does not hold any liability or authority over the business.
Professional license holders are able to offer their services in industries such as:

One of the main benefits of getting a professional license in Dubai is that it allows you 100% ownership of your business. On the other hand, businesses with a trade license are required to have a UAE national who will hold 51% shares in the business. Meanwhile, the foreign investor holds the remaining 49%.
