It is relatively simple to establish a company in a free zone. The free zone authorities need the least amount of paperwork and the shortest amount of time. Here are the essential measures for establishing a company in a free zone.

  • Determine the legal entity form.

Determine the legal body that your company would use. In a free zone, you can create one of two types of businesses:

  • Free Zone Limited Liability Company (FZ LLC) or Free Zone Company (FZ Co.)
    • Free Zone Establishment (FZE)

The differences are based on the number of shareholders and whether the shareholder is a natural or legal entity.

  • Choose a business name.
  • Make an application for a business license.
  • Select an office location.

Obtain pre-approvals, register the business, and obtain your license.
