Freezone Company Formation

Free zones are geographically defined jurisdictions for specific business activities. Unlike mainland companies, free zones offer a unique advantage in business ownership. Mainland companies with certain activities (not all), require a 51% UAE stakeholder in the contract, whereas free zone company formation can be done with 100% foreign ownership. Each Freezone has its own license issuing authority. Free zone companies are permitted to conduct business operations inside the free zone and outside the UAE. However, diversifying the business to other UAE markets is not possible for free zone companies. Currently, about 45 free zones are operating in the United Arab Emirates.
