A Memorandum of association is a document required by the official authority when forming a company. The memorandum of association should include the company name, objective, headquarters, and distribution of shares. In UAE, it is mandatory to draft and notarize a memorandum of association when forming a limited liability company.

Memorandum of association to be notarized before the notary public should be in Arabic.  In case the foreigner is of any nationality other than Arab countries or if the Non-Arab partner does not understand Arabic, then the memorandum of association should be drafted in Arabic and English and stamped by a legal translator duly authorized by the UAE Ministry of Justice.
