WHAT IS A FREE ZONE?
Dubai is a modern city with a strategic location and a pro-business regulatory environment that has been growing at an incredible rate over the last several decades. The city attracts businesses from all around the world and its many Free Zones have been integral to this success story.
Free Zones are special economic zones that offer customs duty benefits and tax concessions to investors and they are each governed by a special framework of rules and regulations. They are designed to encourage foreign investment with 100% ownership for all nationalities along with easier start-up processes, labor and immigration procedures, and other legal services.
