PRO/Government Liaison Services are essentially the integral part of every UAE business and is considered to be the most difficult job when it comes to lack of human resources and knowledge about day to day applications in Government Departments.
Everyday a UAE Based company needs to submit any of the following applications:
|Address Change||LLC License Renewal|
|Husband’s Residence Visa||Labour Fine|
|Attestation||Correction of Date of Birth|
|Ejari-Tenancy Contract Registration||Employment rules|
|Immigration Clearance||Labour Guarantee Refund|
|Bank Guarantee Refund||DED Services|
|Embassies & Consulates||Employment Visa|
|Immigration Establishment Card||Renew-Company|
|Legalization at UAE Embassy||Car Registration|
|Emirates ID||Dependent sponsorship|

|Labour Establishment Card||Family Visa|
|License Renewal-Contracting||Maid Visa|
|Local Service Agent||ECNR Registration|
Now the question arises, if a company has to take care of all these applications then how many PROs can be hired to work efficiently and complete the applications while avoiding delays.
Hiring a PRO is again an expense to the company and providing all resources for fulfilling his/her job responsibilities tends to increase company expenses for Transport, Fuel, Telephone facilities, Salaries, Visa expenses, Desk Space, Documentation etc.
Below is the comparison table for every company who wishes to outsource non-core activities including PRO services to Professional companies like Flying Colour Business Setup Services which are working to provide quality PRO services to a large volume of companies in UAE since many years.

|Hiring Cost||AED 8,000.00 approx.||None.|
|Office Space /Desk Space||Required||Not required.|
|Training Expenses||Required||Not required.|
|Fixed Costs of Allowances – Transport, Fuel, Telephone, Computer, Salaries, Printing and Stationery, medical Insurance and Air-ticket.||AED 10,000.00 / month||No operational expense required. Service Charge for a Retainer package of outsourced PRO services will be applicable|
|Annual expenses : Visa Renewal, Travelling Expenses including Air-Ticket, Annual Leave Salary, Leave Compensation, Insurance||AED 15,000 or more||Not required.|
|Operational Efficiency –||As many Government authorities namely DED, MOL, Tasheel, Immigration, Municipality, KHDA, DHA, Courts, Civil Defence have limited working timings so one or two PROs’ cannot efficiently perform their daily tasks and hence companies face delays in government applications.||Unlike in house PROs’, Professional company like Flying Colour has more than 40 employees working efficiently to handle government applications and there are dedicated PROs for handling specific departments applications. This removes the hassle of roaming on roads to reach to the other department during short working hours of the day.|
