The United Arab Emirates are a confederation of seven Emirates, the best known of which are Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Since foreigners usually need a citizen of the Emirates as a partner in a regular company in the Emirates, the company can be founded in one of the numerous free trade zones in Dubai and the surrounding Emirates.
The UAE has 47 free zones across their seven Emirates, which are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras al Khaimah and Umm al Quwain. Free zones may be broadly categorized as seaport free zones, airport free zones, and mainland free zones. Free trade zone exemptions are:
Ras al Khaimah (RAK) Freezone:
RAK Free Trade Zone (now RAKEZ)
Umm Al Quwain Freezone:
With the large number of free trade zones in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates in general, the local authorities provide targeted support to foreign investors and offer you the ideal framework for setting up a company in your industry. There are, for example, separate free zones for technology companies, media, shipping, services and medical service providers.
As an approved trust company, we will incorporate your company in any free trade and offshore zones in the United Arab Emirates and beyond. We would be happy to support you in setting up a company in a free trade zone and find the best suited structure for you.
