All offshore companies in the UAE must have a registered agent. If you’re not satisfied with your current agent’s performance, or if you’re looking to work with a more reliable and trustworthy service provider, allow Chesterfield to support you throughout the process.

Below, we will explore the process of transferring your Dubai company to a new agent, and discuss how Chesterfield can help.

Why transfer your Dubai Company to a New Agent?

There are several reasons why you may consider transferring your Dubai company to a new agent:

  • Location Change

You may have relocated your business to a new location, and your current agent may not be able to provide services in the new location.

  • Better Services

You may have found a new agent that offers better services, more competitive pricing, or better communication.

  • Poor Performance

Your current agent may not be performing up to your expectations, which may lead to delays in services, inaccurate filings, or lack of communication.

  • Trust Issues

You may have lost trust in your current agent due to a breach of confidentiality, lack of transparency, or unethical behaviour.

Steps to Transfer Your Dubai Company to a New Agent

The process of transferring your Dubai company to a new agent is relatively simple, while there are minimal costs and time requirements in place.

There are a number of steps involved in transferring your Dubai company to a new agent, including:

  1. Research and Selection

You need to research and select a new agent that meets your requirements and has the necessary expertise to manage your company effectively. You can consider factors such as pricing, services offered, reputation, and customer reviews while selecting a new agent.

  1. Notification to Existing Agent

You need to notify your existing agent about your decision to transfer your company to a new agent. This notification should be in writing and should include the reason for the transfer, the name of the new agent, and the date of the transfer. Chesterfield can help you draft the notification needed in order to transfer your company.

  1. Appointment of New Agent

You need to appoint the new agent by signing a new contract, which should outline the services to be provided, the fees, and the duration of the contract.

  1. Document Transfer

You need to transfer all the necessary documents related to your company, such as trade license, Memorandum or Association, and shareholder agreements, to the new agent. The new agent will need these documents to continue providing services effectively.

  1. Bank Transfer

You need to transfer your company’s bank accounts to the new agent. This involves opening new accounts with the new agent and closing the existing accounts with the old agent.

  1. Termination of Old Agent

Once all the documents and bank accounts have been transferred to the new agent, you need to terminate the contract with the old agent. This termination should be in writing and should include the reason for termination, as well as the date of termination.
