A larger portion of Dubai Limited Liability Companies use the local
UAE sponsor as a "silent partner." In this arrangement, the local UAE
sponsor is usually paid an annual "sponsorship fee" in return for
giving up management control of the company to the foreign investor.
But as a formality, we should allocate 51% share of the company
to UAE National. If you want you can make a Side Agreement to protect
your investment stating that the whole investment including sponsor's
share belongs to you. This agreement cannot be attested by Notary. But
you can get signed by the sponsor as a confirmation.
