A large part of our business consists of the formation of business entities within the Free Zones, a commercial company (LLC) within the UAE, and incorporation of offshore companies. There are a number of Free Zones within the UAE and companies that are operating within them are not subject to the many restrictions imposed by the Commercial Companies Law, they are 100% foreign owned, and considered as a legal entity with LLC status.
