Zones In Dubai

Free Zones are necessary for boosting international business as they simply offer 100% foreign ownership and single window administration convenience. Each Free Zone has its own specific requirements concerning permitted activities, office and/or warehouse space.

Registering any company in a free zone is beneficial for the following reasons: 100% foreign company ownership; 100% repatriation of capital and profits; exemption from all import and export duties; no corporate tax; no dividend tax; 24/7 operations, etc.

At the broader level, free trade zones are classified as sea port, mainland, and airport zones. On the other hand, a non-free zone allows you to freely operate in any area of the UAE.
