The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has long been an attractive destination for entrepreneurs the world over, because of a well-developed and diversified economy, excellent infrastructure and transport links and a unique low tax regime. But while these may be the factors that get the headlines, there’s another major reason why so many flock to the UAE’s shores to conduct business – Free Zones. Also known as free trade zones, these are economic areas where goods and services can be traded. Free trade zones attract 0% tax rates, 100% Ownership, preferential customs duty rates and 100% import and export tax exemption.
