United Arab Emirates Tax Partner

Francesca is the Managing Director of New Horizons Business Consultants, a Dubai based consultancy firm specialized in setting up businesses and conducting market research in the United Arab Emirates.

With more than 15 years of trade, investment, banking, logistics, project management and hands-on experience in the business set up sector, we know how to advise clients on their new business endeavours. Setting up a business does not merely consist of getting the right license, but it entails much more such as the opening of a corporate bank account, suggesting the correct shareholding structure to benefit from existing double-taxation agreements, advise on whether to setup in a Free Zone, Offshore or in UAE Mainland, amongst others.

Being from The Netherlands, Francesca’s great passion is to help individuals and companies from Europe to find suitable and profitable expansion and fiscal solutions. She is aware that a unique approach is required for each business and therefore believes in a personalised tailor-made approach, instead of providing generic solutions. She has a vast knowledge of UAE business setups, banking, marketing, project management and government related services.

Francesca has worked in Australia, Spain, The Netherlands and the UAE and is fluent in Dutch, English and Spanish and advanced in French. Her educational background includes a master’s degree in Euroasian International Business from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and a bachelor’s degree in European Studies from The Hague University, The Netherlands.

In her spare time, Francesca likes to play violin, read books and dedicate herself to her NGO in India which provides education to underprivileged children.
