Free Zone Company Formation in UAE

Free Zones are special economic zones established to offer tax-free and duty-free benefits to expatriate investors. Designed to boost international business, these zones provide complete ownership to foreign investors. Free zone company formation in the UAE is governed by a specific set of rules and regulations applicable to each free zone. Free zones in Dubai are managed by free zone authorities and operate outside federal law or the Ministry of Labor laws. A free zone company is an efficient legal entity offering not only 100% ownership to investors but also a host of exclusive advantages that other forms of business structures do not. Unlike mainland companies, free zone companies do not require a local sponsor, allowing expatriates to set up their business independently and enjoy 100% repatriation of capital and profits. Additionally, free zones offer 100% corporate and personal income tax exemptions.

Most free zones in Dubai offer trading, service, industrial, national industrial, and branch licenses to investors looking to establish their businesses. Free zones in the UAE are typically attached to ports or are industry-specific.
