Branch Setup - UAE Freezones

Do you want to establish a Branch Company in UAE?

A branch can be registered as a trading branch or a representative office. The branch is not a separate legal entity and belongs 100% to the mother company. No minimum capital is required.

UAE’s strategic location is also an important reason why companies look to it as their key to success. It is an excellent pathway between the major Eastern and Western countries. It is a focal point for both import and export operations making it a destination worth your time and money. Having a branch in the same region where your potential and current clients are located, will add value to your products/services and help your business to gain trust in the market, and will make your operations faster and more efficient.
