Where is the best place to register a company in the UAE?

Depending on the type of company and its goals, it can be registered in one of the UAE’s free trade zones or in the mainland itself.

It is also important to decide in which emirate or free zone the company will be located.

The decision is influenced by factors such as the field of activity and the specific conditions necessary for operations, the target market, the distribution channel, the cost of rent, and proximity to the where the owners live.
