Having a local bank account provides numerous benefits, including ease of doing business, processing transactions, and managing finances. Here’s an overview of the process to open a company bank account in Dubai.

Choose a Bank

Research and select a suitable bank in Dubai that meets your company’s needs. Consider factors such as the bank’s services, fees, reputation, and proximity to your business location.

Gather Required Documents

The exact documentation required may vary depending on the bank and the type of company (Free Zone, Mainland, or Offshore). Commonly needed documents include:

  2. Certificate of Incorporation
  3. Passport copies and residence visas of company shareholders and directors
  4. Board resolution authorizing the account opening
  5. Proof of address for shareholders and directors

Submit Application

Visit the chosen bank’s branch with all the required documents to initiate the account opening process. Some banks may allow online applications as well.

Complete KYC Process

As part of the Know Your Customer (KYC) process, the bank may request additional information and conduct due diligence on the company’s shareholders and directors.

Deposit Minimum Balance

Many banks require a minimum balance to be maintained in the company account.

Choose Account Type and Currency

Select the appropriate account type (e.g., current account, savings account) and the desired account currency (AED or other major currencies).

Obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC):

For companies registered in Free Zones, some banks may require a No Objection Certificate from the respective Free Zone Authority.

Once the account is approved, the bank will provide you with the account details, including the account number and other relevant information.
