From The President’s Desk


I have written earlier about the positives of Dubai as a second home, an alternate place to do business, an option or leg outside the country to being myriad benefits to your existing business in India. My own company has an office there since 5 years, and it has immensely helped the parent company grow. From an almost NIL International exposure, we now have 50% India and 50% International revenues. Much of this has been possible from our Dubai outpost. I am a regular visitor for work to Dubai, and have got to meet many Indians and foreigners residing and doing business there.

As far as ease of doing business is concerned, I cant think of a better location. Taxation is almost non existent, filing of all types of returns are nearly zero, ‘interference’ from authorities are to the minimum. Whats more, you get a outside view into your own current business.

IBG has made several inroads into Dubai. We are in a tie up with IBPC, the Indian chamber of commerce, we are representing DMCC the Free Trade Zone, and we are also in last mile discussions with a major group of property brokers who can assist in IBG members buying residential and office properties. Residential properties begin from Rs. 1 cr onwards. Its also a great weekend getaway, being just a 3 hour flight away. I also know

of many Indians living half the year in Dubai in order to qualify for NRI status. Its time IBG members and associates open their eyes from the daily grind of work and look at the broader vistas.
