Entrepreneurs who perform trade activities will sometimes need to verify a company in Dubai in order to be sure that it is legitimate. This is a precautionary step which can prove very useful for avoiding scams or suspicious offers and collaborations that sound too good to be true.
The company verification process
Business owners can perform their own basic company verification. This will include verifying the basic information they already have about the company like trying to make a phone call to the provided number or, if possible, even take the time to visit the company headquarters. Most illegitimate companies will not provide valid registration information and this simple step can save you the hassle of entering into an unprofitable business relationship.
Another thing you can do is ask for reference about that company. This can be done through business contacts and, if the company is legitimate, other business owners who have worked with them will be happy to share their pleasant (or unpleasant) business experiences. Our Dubai attorneys can also help you with a basic company verification – checking the business licenses.
Companies in Dubai need to provide public information to the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and this information is accessible to anyone via the online portal.
