Company formation In UAE

Establishing businesses in UAE has multiple benefits. Besides other benefits, it is an excellent way of tax planning since there are no capital gains or personal income taxes in UAE. Company formation in UAE is a reputable, regulated and international trading solution. Further structures such as holding or investment companies can be used. The UAE represents an excellent long-term option and with a tax-free legal base, UAE is a safe haven for offshore and onshore companies.

The UAE economy is divided between the onshore sector dominated by local business interests, with restrictions on foreign ownership, and the offshore sector which consists of a number of Free Zones. Economic activity is regulated separately in each of the seven Emirates as well as by the Federal Government.

Free Zones

Free Zones were set up to encourage foreign trade and investment. In 1985, the inauguration of Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA) created the benchmark for regulations and incentives proving so successful that the model has been copies multiple times in Dubai and in the other Emirates.

It provides a multitude of incentives, such as 100% foreign ownership of companies eliminating the need of a local partner, low-cost operational environment, full repatriation of capital and profits and exemption from import, export, corporate and personal taxes. Additional support is provided through the One Stop Shop service to help companies expedite the process of obtaining necessary permits, licenses, approvals and clearances from the relevant authorities and find skilled manpower and suitable accommodation.
