Do we need a license in order to carry out our business activity in Dubai or elsewhere in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)?

For any commercial activity that is performed in the United Arab Emirates, you require a suitable permit. Such license needs to cover all services performed by the company. As a general rule, a license is valid for one year and needs to be duly renewed for each consecutive year. Depending on the location of your company, different authorities are responsible for the issuance and renewal of the license.
