Advantages-of-opening-a-company-in-a-Dubai-free-zoneDubai remains one of the most appealing investing destinations for foreign enterprisers due to its tax facilities and business infrastructure. However, most investors come to Dubai because of its free zones and the advantages these offer. Company formation in a Dubai free zone is quite simple if one knows the steps to complete for business registration. However, it must be noted that one will need the assistance of local firms to set up a company in a Dubai free zone.

Dubai’s free zones

While most free zones are located in Dubai, there are also several free zones established in other emirates in the UAE. No matter their physical location, all free zones offer pretty much the same advantages. Among the most attractive free zones in Dubai are the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Dubai Internet City and Dubai Maritime City, however, Dubai has more than 20 free zones each and one of them with its advantages.

Why open a company in a Dubai free zone?

The most important advantage of company formation in a Dubai free zone is that compared to onshore companies, a free zone company will not require a local partner. Dubai free zones allow for full foreign ownership when establishing companies. The other advantages of setting up a company in a Dubai free zone is that shareholders will benefit from corporate tax exemptions, usually for 50 years. Considering each free zone has its own authority issuing and enforcing the local legislation, one should also know that depending on the Dubai free zone they decide to register the company in, they must apply for one of the business licenses related to the industry they want to operate in. Moreover, company registration in a Dubai free zone is usually completed through one-stop shops where filing the incorporation and licensing documents is part of the same process.
