When deciding to change manager for a LLC the first step is always to consult the constitutional documents of the company – the details in the MOA (Memorandum of Association) for the LLC will identify the path which must be followed and who holds responsibility for replacement and appointment of the successor GM.
If the foreign party in a LLC is a corporate entity then the first step will be for the overseas Shareholder to issue a Resolution accepting the removal of the present GM and authorising their replacement. This document should contain, or should be accompanied by a document which contains, the powers of the new GM. This document is also required in the case of a Foreign Branch.
Once this document has been legalised for use in UAE steps must be taken to update the records of the relevant UAE authorities; Notary Public (typically by an amendment to MOA) and DED in the case of a LLC, and DED and MOE in case of a Foreign Branch.
On occasion there may be a requirement to inform another body such as Dubai Municipality, KHDA, HAAD etc (this will depend on your company activities); as well as to inform your company bank to update them. To ensure these step are not overlooked we would recommend consulting with a professional firm who can assist with the process.
