UAE has more than 40 free zones spread between its emirates, which offer foreign companies’ numerous advantages. Each free zone has its own commercial categories, and trade licenses are issued to the companies that fall within them. Planning how to acquire a free zone license or use any free zone services requires proper evaluation, especially when choosing a free zone that will best serve your business.
We can guide you in choosing the right free zone for your business.

New companies can be registered in the form of Free Zone Establishment (FZE) or a Free Zone Company (FZC). FZEs have one shareholder, FZCs have two or more - or they can open a branch or representative office of their existing company based in the UAE. FZEs or FZCs are limited liability companies governed by the rules and regulations of the Free Zone where they are located. The UAE Commercial Companies Law (CCL) does not apply here.
After establishing an official presence in a Free Zone, the business will need to lease and acquire an operating license from the Free Zone Authority (FZA). Each type of free zone requires a different type of license. Trade and industrial license holders can only conduct business within the Free Zone or abroad. Creating a joint venture and establishing an official UAE agent will enable you to sell products in the UAE.
