Setting Up Businesses in Dubai’s Free Zones

An attractive business environment for companies wishing to establish themselves in this region is provided by UAE Free Zones. With many more still being built, there are currently about 50 operational Free Zones. Each Free Zone authority caters to different commercial categories.

One of the main benefits related to the establishment of a free zone is that foreigners face no restrictions in terms of ownership. In a free zone, FZA oversees companies that are fully owned by foreign investors thereby bypassing Commercial Companies Law of UAE.

The two have some similarities but also have something different between them as well. Free Zone companies operate within the UAE and are subject to regulations applicable only in the respective zones, while Offshore ones primarily aim at asset protection and tax planning purposes.

To set up a company in any free zone, licenses from pertinent FZAs should be obtained, and their proposed activities must fall within the specific commercial categories stipulated under that particular FZ’s rules of zoning. Tax exemptions, customs duty exemptions and good infrastructure are some of the advantages resulting from establishing a company in a Free Zone.

What advantages come with launching your company in a free zone, and what are the operational mechanisms of each?

1. Retain Ownership

The main help given by UAE free zones is that international investors can have complete ownership of their businesses without needing a local partner.

3. Financial Incentives

Some money benefits in free zones, aside from the ease of doing business, include a 0 tax rate on how much you earn and no taxes for bringing things into or out of these areas. Plus, it's easy to send your profits back home if you want.

2. Business License

Some types of businesses might need clearance from certain officials. Contact us today for a free chat. Our experts will help you learn what is needed to start your business.
