UAE Free Zones

List of Companies in UAE Free Zones

What is a Free Zone?

Free Zones (or Free Trade Zones) were originally set up to boost international business, allowing companies to have 100% foreign ownership and offering preferential rates and taxes.

The company formation process in Dubai is a relatively simple process with strong incentives, especially in the form of the UAE’s free zones.

The most popular benefits of doing business in UAE free zones include:

  • You own 100% of the company without local partner or agent
  • Your free zone company is compliant with economic substance requirements
  • No limitations on transferring funds out of UAE
  • Financial audit is not required in most free zones
  • Corporate account in one of UAE government banks
  • UAE residency for company owners and employees
  • No personal presence for setup or renewal

With so many benefits on offer, it’s sometimes difficult to make your selection. Before you get started you need to ask yourself a series of questions. Will this free zone be easier for me to operate in? Can I get a bank account with this free zone? What is the advantage, if any, of going with the cheapest company in the cheapest free zone in the UAE, or will this cause me problems?

What are the taxes you are exempted from at the Free Zones in Dubai?

Some of the taxes you will not be paying for your free zone establishment in Dubai are as follows: 

  • Value Added Tax (VAT)
  • Income Tax
  • Corporate Tax
  • Customs.

Did you know that you do not have to be physically present in Dubai on in the UAE to complete the setup process of your company?

There are many free zones, and procedures, prices and requirements change all the time. The free zones compete with each other for business, which gives them an incentive to innovate, and stay attractive to investors.

Apart from understanding the laws, finding the right free zone is a hard task as there are more than thirty free zones in Dubai.
