A foreign branch office is the local representation of a company or establishment that is registered elsewhere in the world. This branch is obligated to engage only in the same or similar activities undertaken by the parent company.  Under UAE law, a branch office is an extension of its parent company, and the parent company therefore remains responsible for any liabilities of the branch office in UAE.


Branch Office: A branch office permits theinvestor to set up a full-fledged business that ispermitted to perform all activities similar to its parent company (depending on activities) asspecified in the license at time of incorporation.

Representative Office: A representative officeis strictly restricted to advertising and marketing of services and products that theparent company deals in.

Unlike a branch a representative office cannot conduct business operation or market its services and products.
