Measures to simulate new investments in the UAE free zones

Due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on business activity around the world, a few of the UAE free zones are proposing different packages of measures aimed to simulate interest of new investors:

The persons making applications for DMCC Company from 1 April and until 31 May 2020 might benefit from the new measures implemented by DMCC. For example, the proposed measures include (1) up to 50% reduction on the total company setup fee, inclusive of one-year Flexi desk, (2) flexible payment options for new DMCC Business Centre tenants and (3) complete digital process for business set up.

At the same time, the offer for single shareholder consists of the following: (a) a discount of AED 9,000 on the Registration Fee when setting up a company; and (b) possibility to opt for a special Flexi Desk for AED 232 (inclusive of VAT) and an administration fee of AED 656 (inclusiveof VAT). Additionally, Initial Application Feein the amount of AED 1,035 should be paid along with the submission of theinitial application for company setup in DMCC. The validity of terms of the offer are limited by the period of one year.

If there are more than two shareholders in a company registered in DMCC from 1 April and until 31 May 2020, the proposed discount is only AED 4,000 on the Registration Fee. Nevertheless, the possibility to opt for a special Flexi Desk for AED 232 (inclusive of VAT) and an administration fee of AED 656 (inclusive of VAT) continues to be applicable in this case.

At the end of March 2020, RAKEZ announces its Spring Office Packages including the following benefits:

  2. Additional two free activities in Commercial or Services licence worth AED 4,000;
