COMPANY FORMATION Why choose Dubai to set up a business?

Dubai Free Zone company is suitable for all forms of trading business from consulting services, to export/import, manufactoring and more.


The two most common reasons why we recommend Dubai are: territorial taxation & ease of obtainig investor residency Visa.


There is no taxation in the entire UAE, and therefore a Dubai Free Zone Company can operate tax-free globally.  There is also no personal taxation. 


There is a VAT at 5%, but it only applies if your Dubai company invoices other Free Zone companies in the UAE. An annual audit is required.


One of the attractions of Dubai is its residency scheme for IFZA Dubai companies.  You can move to Dubai and obtain a tax-free residency there for you, your family and your employees.


The process is fast and straightforward, and the visas are usually granted for 3 years at a time
