My company creates valet parking automation software that is cloud-based and runs on Apple hardware with 2D/3D barcode-scanner peripheral attachments.
Currently we are based out of Toronto, Canada and are looking to enter the Dubai market. I spoke extensively with companies that are willing to sell us freezone business licenses and visas, however, is this even necessary?
Our clients are 4.5+ star hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls, however, due to the SaaS subscription model, we are wondering if we need to waste money opening a freezone business just to have a local bank account and address.
I'm sure there are plenty of subscription services that are paid for from Dubai in foreign currency, for example, Dropbox subscription, etc.
Is it possible to do business with these clients and expect them to be able to pay invoices to a Canadian business?
