We can help you set up your business here, including assisting with accounting, bookkeeping, and managing UAE corporate taxes. Our team at Sanctuary also has extensive experience with helping our clients obtain visas and tax residency certificates to help them manage their international tax affairs and meet their relevant filing obligations.

Many of our clients are looking for advice on how to own their assets and protect them for the benefit of their family and future generations. We work closely with them to develop ownership structures, including trusts and foundations, to help them meet their objectives, which often include succession planning.

As a result of greater emphasis on good governance, we are also seeing increasing demand for help in setting up family offices, and advice on both the structure and the operation.
