Business setup in UAE Freezone

Keep in mind that the only way for you to start your own business in the UAE without taking on a UAE national as your partner is to locate your business in one of the country’s many Free Zones.  Free Zones have a distinct legal structure and are considered offshore companies for legal purposes. Free Zone companies also offer incentives such as 100 percent foreign ownership, zero corporate taxation and quick administrative support from the Free Zone authorities (FZA).

In each free zone, a FZA is responsible for issuing free zone operating licences and assisting companies to establish their business. Once registering a business as a Free Zone Establishment or Free Zone Company, it will be considered a Limited Liability Company (LLC) that will be subject to the laws and regulations of the free zone in which it was established.
