Federal Decree-Law No. 26 of 2020 (the Decree) has been issued, introducing significant amendments to Federal Law No. 2 of 2015 on Commercial Companies (the CCL). -

The Decree amends 51 articles of the CCL and introduces three new articles, with a view to encouraging further foreign direct investment into the UAE. The majority of the amendments apply to limited liability companies (LLCs) and joint stock companies (JSCs) and represent the most substantial changes to the UAE companies law regime since 2015. The Decree comes against the background of the UAE’s introduction over recent years of a range of legislation aimed at aligning the country with international practices.
