Freezone Company Formation
Affordable Freezone license options
Freezones or Free trade zones are special economic zones in UAE which allow the investors to own 100% shares of a company. These authorties are intended to provide single window operations and improve business in the country to Freezone Companies.
Setting up a freezone company implies that you will work usually at preferential tax and customs rates. This implies you are exempted from the mainland laws of the country, which might be extremely favorable for investors.
The specific authority of the country will help you in forming up a business license in order to improve the business efficiency for the investors.

Types of Company Formation in Freezones
When establishing a business in a freezone, understanding the various legal structures available is crucial. Each legal type offers distinct advantages and considerations, allowing you to tailor your company’s formation to your specific goals. Here are the primary legal structures commonly found in freezones:
Free Zone Establishment (FZE)
A Free Zone Establishment is a legal entity formed by a single shareholder, whether an individual or a corporate entity. FZE offers full ownership to the shareholder and provides an excellent option for entrepreneurs looking to operate independently within the freezone.
Free Zone Company (FZC)
Similar to FZE, a Free Zone Company allows multiple shareholders to come together and form a corporate entity. FZC is an ideal choice for businesses with partners or investors who wish to collaborate on ventures within the freezone.
Establishing a branch office allows you to extend your existing company’s presence into the freezone. This is suitable for companies looking to expand their operations while maintaining a connection to their parent company.
A subsidiary company is an independent legal entity with its own management and operations, but it’s fully owned by a parent company. This structure can offer flexibility in terms of financial liability and operational control.
In a joint venture, two or more parties collaborate to create a new legal entity. This can be an effective strategy to leverage the strengths of each partner and pursue mutual business objectives.
Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)
An SPV is often used for specific business projects, investments, or holding assets. It provides a separate legal entity for these specialized purposes while minimizing risk to the parent company.
Cost of Business Setup in Freezone:
Business setup cost varies from freezone to freezone. Normally Dubai freezones are little expensive because of the high rental cost. There are so many freezone options available in Ajman, Ummal Quwain, Ras al Khaimah and other states of United Arab Emirates.
