Local Service Agent Agreement

A Local Service Agent Agreement (LSA) explains the relationship of the owner and the LSA. Once we receive the Initial approval from DED, we will draft an LSA agreement. The LSA can be written in Arabic or English; we’ll type it in whichever language you prefer. It will need to be signed by a Notary Public or a lawyer;
then, it needs to be legalized by a Legal Consultancy firm.

It is important to note that the local service agent agreement (LSA) you sign will depend on the legal form of your company. To perform professional activities in UAE, you need to prepare a local service agent agreement LSA. For commercial activities, you need to sign a memorandum of understanding MOA. The following forms need MOA.

  • Public Shareholding Company
  • Limited Liability Company
  • Private Shareholding Company
  • Civil Company
  • Partnership Company
  • Simple Limited Partnership

If you’re setting up a branch in Dubai, then a Memorandum of Association (MOA) is needed. However, if you are setting up a sole establishment (i.e. not a branch), or if
If you’re setting up an incorporated civil company that owns over 51 % by UAE locals and is not owned by foreign shareholders, then you will need to file an LSA Agreement with the Department of Economic Development.
