DIFC Courts

The DIFC Courts Wills Service provides an online facility that enables eligible persons to complete and submit for registration a DIFC Courts Will which is specific to their free zone and UAE onshore company shares (including RAKICC registered companies). This ‘Business Owners Will’ can encompass up to five (5) separate shareholdings in any free zone or UAE onshore company situated in the UAE. The company in which your shares are held must be incorporated in the UAE and established in accordance with UAE Federal Law.

Step 1. Choose ‘Single’ or ‘Mirror’ DIFC Courts Will

If you are not married, you should select the Single DIFC Courts Will option whereas if you are married and both you and your wife/husband wish to register a DIFC Courts Will at the same time, then you should select the Mirror DIFC Courts Will option (giving an overall net reduction in registration fees).

Step 2. Consider Legal Advice

Your DIFC Courts Will is an extremely important document and you are strongly advised to consider taking legal advice in its preparation. The Rules set down certain minimum requirements that must be met for a Will to be registerable and if these are not met, your Will would be unenforceable. To help you find a suitable lawyer, the Wills Service publishes a list of legal practitioners that have met certain minimum standards in relation to their knowledge of the Rules and in relation to drafting DIFC Courts Wills.
