UAE Free Zones
Europe Emirates Group can help you start your business in UAE Free Zones
The UAE is home to more than 40 free zones, many of which are industry specific and contribute to the economy in different ways.
UAE free zones are a magnet for foreign direct investment, provide thousands of jobs, drive economic diversification outside of traditional hydrocarbons and support the transfer of knowledge, technology and expertise to the Emirates.
List of UAE Freezones
Free zones are an attractive option for market entry businesses. Each free zone is governed by an independent authority which issues operating trade licences for Free Zone Establishments (FZEs) and assists businesses with the UAE company formation process.
There is also the option of setting up a branch or representative office of an existing or parent company based in the UAE or overseas. Different types of licence are applicable in the different free zones, with specific restrictions regarding operational remit.
Unlike onshore (LLC) companies, where a UAE National majority partner (51 percent) is required in order to set up a business, a free zone trade licence comes with 100 percent ownership.
