    ADGM Announces New Fee for Restricted Scope Companies

    The Registration Authority (‘RA’) of ADGM announces the introduction of a new fee for the registration and renewal of a Restricted Scope Company (‘RSC') in the international financial centre. An RSC is a unique corporate vehicle offering a greater degree of confidentiality than other forms of corporate entities in ADGM with limited information disclosure on the public register but full disclosure to ADGM’s Registrar.

    The newly introduced RSC fee of USD 3,100 will be applied in addition to the existing standard fees to register or renew RSCs in ADGM. The fee will be implemented and effective from 2nd of August 2024.

    Applicants wishing to apply for a new RSC or renew their existing RSC on or after the 2nd of August 2024 will be subject to this change.
