UAE free zones allow companies 100% ownership of their businesses.

Companies can trade internationally and are allowed to own real estate within the UAE in so-called freehold areas. Companies in the United Arab Emirates free zones can offer services and products without an agent, but to sell their products on the mainland of the UAE, partnering with a UAE onshore-registered company is necessary. Free zones offer options such as flexi-desk and flexi-office setups if no office space is required for the company’s operations, great infrastructure, access to freehold property, and complete privacy for investors, with limited reporting obligations.

The main benefits of establishing a Free Zone Company in the UAE include:
• 100% exemption from corporate and income taxes

• Cost-effective business incorporation solutions
• Fast & easy incorporation and company management
• Wide and comprehensive range of business activities including Consultancy, Service and Trading options
• 100% foreign ownership
• Business owners are not required to be physically present during the incorporation process
• Companies have limited liability
• Zero foreign currency restrictions
• Full repatriation of company profits and capital
• Low set-up costs
• No physical office requirements
• No share capital requirement
• Ability to incorporate holding companies

There are 59 free zones in the United Arab Emirates and choosing which free zone to start your company in, will depend on your requirements for the business.
