Where Can You Setup A Company?

When starting a business in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), you have to be familiar with the “mainland”, “freezone”, and “offshore” jurisdictions. There are pros and cons for all the three jurisdictions as well as business opportunities for entrepreneurs with different priorities. The priorities can be subjected to type of business entity, business activity performed by the company, your intended trading partners and your visa requirements.
