A free zone is a special economic jurisdiction in the UAE that offers the following business benefits:
However, if your business is registered in a free zone, you can only trade within that free zone and internationally. To conduct trade in the mainland, you will need to get permission from the concerned free zone authority and the local Department of Economic Development.
As mentioned above, free zone companies can only trade and operate within the free zone where they are registered and overseas. In contrast, mainland companies are free to trade anywhere in the UAE and outside of the country.
Furthermore, setting up a company in the mainland previously required a local sponsor, who will own 51% of the company. With the revised Commercial Companies Law, foreign investors can now own 100% of their mainland companies, except in strategic sectors such as oil and gas and banking.
A mainland company setup offers the following benefits:
A mainland trade license is renewed annually. A free zone license, on the other hand, has a different validity period depending on the free zone authority. This can range from one to five years.
