What setup option is best for your business?

Establishing a business in Dubai, or any other part of the UAE, can be complex, as there are various decisions that need to be made that can affect the outcome and success of your venture. One such decision is determining the appropriate jurisdiction- whether to go for a free zone or mainland option.

Free Zones

When choosing a free zone option, you will be able to retain 100% ownership of your Dubai company, enjoy a 0% corporate and income tax rate, not have to pay custom duties, and have the option to repatriate 100% of your capital and profits.


Choosing a mainland option would provide you with greater flexibility in terms of business activities, allowing you to operate anywhere inside and outside of the UAE without any limitations on the number of visas you can obtain.
