Freezone Business Setup in UAE

A Free Zone in the UAE is a designated geographic area where foreign businesses can set up with simplified regulations, customs benefits, and full ownership rights. It’s established to attract foreign investment, promote economic diversification, and facilitate international trade.

Here are seven steps to set up a business in a UAE Free Zone:

  • Select Free Zone: Choose a suitable Free Zone based on your business activity and location preferences. Each Free Zone may have specific regulations and benefits.

  • Choose Business Activity: Determine the type of business activity you wish to engage in. Different Free Zones specialize in various industries.

  • Select Legal Entity: Decide on the legal entity, such as a Free Zone Establishment (FZE) for single owners or a Free Zone Company (FZCO) for multiple shareholders.

  • Apply for License: Submit a license application to the chosen Free Zone authority. Specify the type of license you need, such as trading, manufacturing, or services.

  • Office Space and Facilities: Choose the appropriate office space within the Free Zone. Options range from flexi-desks to larger offices, depending on your needs.

  • Submit Documentation: Provide necessary documents, including passport copies, business plan, and application forms. Non-resident shareholders may require additional documentation.

  • Obtain Approvals: Once documents are submitted, the Free Zone authority reviews and processes the application. Once approved, you’ll receive the business license and can commence operations.
