A Free zone is a geographical region or jurisdiction which is permitted to direct a predefined trading activity or set of activities in the UAE. With the growing economy in UAE and infinite business opportunities, the UAE government has introduced UAE Free Zones. The free zone is often confused with offshore. It is important to understand that the UAE offshore company is a company that allows working offshore only, which is anywhere in the world except the UAE. Dubai free zones are zones designated by relevant authorities where companies can be 100% foreign-owned and they don’t require a 51% local partner. Companies in free zones are allowed to work in the UAE and run their operations in the free zones where the company is registered.
