Business Setup

The 3 jurisdictions- Mainland, Freezone and Offshore have evident differences with respect to several criteria. This article discusses the major differences between Mainland and Free zone jurisdictions with respect to parameters like Ownership and scope of Business, Office space, visa eligibility, Company audit, and others.

Mainland Services

If you want to start a business in Dubai, you have two options: mainland or free zone. Mainland services allow you to operate your business anywhere in the UAE, without any restrictions on location, trade activities, or ownership. You can also benefit from the strong infrastructure, legal framework, and market opportunities of Dubai. However, to set up a mainland company, you need a local sponsor who owns 51% of the shares and handles all the legal formalities. You also need to obtain various licenses and approvals from different authorities.

Freezone Services

Another option for starting a business in Dubai is to register it in one of the many free zones. Free zones are special economic zones that offer various incentives and benefits to foreign investors. Some of these include 100% ownership, tax exemptions, customs duty waivers, and simplified procedures. Free zones also cater to specific industries and sectors, such as media, technology, healthcare, and education. However, free zone companies have some limitations, such as being restricted to operate within their designated area and not being able to trade directly with the local market.
