Dubai Nominee Director services in 2023
Some of our Clients request Healy Consultants Group to provide passive resident director services to fulfil Dubai statutory requirements, as may be set by different government or financial institutions in the emirate. Mr Aidan Healy or another of our Dubai staff members will act as the resident director of your company.
Resident director litigation, financial and reputation risk
- Acting as a resident director for our Clients’ companies makes Healy Consultants Group vulnerable to financial, litigation, and reputational risks. For example:
- In case a company fails to file its annual returns and annual general meeting documents on time, the resident director is liable to pay the corresponding penalties and attend a court summons on behalf of the company;
- The resident director is answerable to the Tax Authority in case of unpaid taxes or inaccurate tax reporting by our Clients’ companies;
- Any breach of law by our Clients’ companies can result in disqualification for Healy Consultants Group and Aidan Healy;
- Because of the above, we require our Clients to strictly adhere to the set down laws and fulfil annual filing obligations to ensure the Client’s company is not in contravention of local company law.
