Before a business can start operations in Dubai, it has to go through incorporation and new company registration. In Dubai, there are two different types of locations: the Free Zones and the non-Free Zones. If a business is looking to establish headquarters anywhere in the city, it has to go through the rigorous process of doing paperwork and submitting documents for registering a company in Dubai.
One of the initial processes a venture has to go through is the application for a business license. There are many different licenses for corporate operations in the UAE, and the requirements for these licenses differ depending on the prospective location of the business.
The Free Zones Companies are specially designed to allow expatriates to enjoy tax free benefits and other corporate advantages, in return for making financial investments that stimulate the local economy. There are over 20 Free Zones in the city, including JLT Free Zone, Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, Dubai Silicon Oasis, and the Jebel Ali Free Zone.
The requirements for a license in any of the Free Zones are different from the requirements for a license in non-Free Zone areas. As part of the process for new company registration in Dubai, a business has to determine where it will be setting up before applying for a license.
