Ownership of the Company

The key benefit of operating in a UAE Free Zone is that foreign investors can continue to own 100% of their companies on all available business activities. 


Specialized Category of Sectors

The fact that many of the UAE's Free Zones are sector-specific can also offer tremendous opportunities to enterprises operating in Free Zones. As a result, their business owners have quick access to a wealth of knowledge and experience from others in the same industry.


Financial Benefits

Financial benefits of Free Zones include a corporation and income tax rate of 0%, the absence of import- and export-related customs taxes, and the possibility to repatriate 100% of the company's revenues.


The flexibility of the Physical Office

Free Zones allow businesses to operate without needing a corporate office, depending on the company's nature. Many Free Zones in the UAE offer SMEs to work in flexible office spaces and the exemption to lease or own office space.
