Benefits of setting up a company in the Dubai South Free Zone

  • Tax exemption

    This comes with the territory where the fact that it is a free zone means that you as an expatriate are exempted from taxes that are normally imposed on foreign investors. Dubai South Free Zone companies dealing with imports and exports also enjoy exemption from custom duty charges allowing them to run operations that are actually profitable.

  • You get sole ownership

    When you open a business or set up a company in the Dubai South free zone, you get to enjoy 100% rights to it unlike other places where a part of the company is owned by the host country. Sole ownership means that you get to make independent decisions and business moves as long as they are within the law. This form of additional freedom is what business owners need to make decisions that will ensure prosperity of their businesses.

  • 100 % repatriation of capital and profits

    This means that everything in terms of profit that is made from the business belongs to you as the business owner and not to you and the host region. This way, you have full access to all the capital that you require to successfully run whatever business you have decided to venture in. This benefit also gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with the products made especially if yours is a manufacturing or processing company. This means that you can choose either to exclusively sell within the region, export or both.

  • Access to cutting edge technology and infrastructure

    Dubai South Free Zone is a project by the government of Dubai that is aimed at turning it into an international all-rounded commerce and technological hub. This means that absolutely no expense is being spared in terms of infrastructure and technology with some of the most amazing buildings, communication systems and transport networks in the region.

  • Easy access by road, air or water

The three of these make it possible for you, your products and you clients to easily make it to and from your base of operations.

  • Exposure to wider client pool

    The fact that it is an international business hub means that Dubai South Free Zone companies have exposure to a much larger client pool. This is great for business as it ensures there is constant demand for the products and services that they have to offer. International exposure also increases your business’s chances of expansion and success in other regions because people from all over the world get a chance to appreciate whatever it is that you have to offer.

  • Access to affordable land for residential and commercial purposes

    There is a lot of prime land available for sale and for leasing in and around Dubai South Free Zone for both residential and commercial use.

In addition to the affordable purchase and lease prices, the land rates are also fairly low.

  • You are allowed to own property and open accounts

    Finally, as an expatriate in Dubai South free zone you are free to actually own property including land, real estate property and much more.
