Major Benefits of a RAKEZ Free Zone Business Setup


RAKEZ Freezone Company Setup

Legal Structure Under RAKEZ Free Zone

In the RAKEZ Free Zone, entrepreneurs can choose between two legal setups. First, they can start a Free Zone Limited Liability Company (FZ-LLC). This gives them freedom, low costs, and a friendly business environment. Or, they can open a branch. This way, they can enjoy easy processes and a great atmosphere. These options show how supportive RAKEZ is for all kinds of businesses.


An FZ-LLC lets you set up a company with 2-50 shareholders. More shareholders make way for a collaborative approach for entrepreneurs in the RAKEZ Free Zone space.


Foreign firms can set up their branches to make their presence in the UAE. This way, they can gain from RAKEZ’s strategic perks. Also, a branch of a UAE firm can extend its operations as a branch. This way, it can reach the free zone.
