What is the Jebel Ali Free Zone?

For traders who sell products in the Persian Gulf and < ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />South Asia, the Jebel Ali Free Zone is a dream comes true. Foreign companies can use Dubai as a distribution or manufacturing base without having to pay import duties or form partnerships with local companies in the United Arab Emirates. In Jebel Ali, a foreign-owned business essentially operates as "offshore" concern. < ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Outside the Jebel Ali Free Zone, commercial law in the United Arab Emirates requires foreigners to go into business with local U.A.E. firms or sponsors who are entitled to own at least 51 percent of the business and its profits. But inside Jebel Ali, there is no need to bother with these rules. Foreign companies are free to manufacture trade and form joint ventures as they please.

To register, a person needs only fill out a two-page questionnaire and fax it to the authorities in Dubai. An initial response takes about a week, and then a handful of forms need to be processed and notarized, including the applicant's articles of incorporation. By keeping down the bureaucracy, Jebel Ali can deliver office keys to new clients in less than two months.

The Free Zone is located 35 kilometers southwest of Dubai city and is built around the world's largest man-made port. It covers 100 square kilometers, of which about 30 percent has been leased. An array of investment incentives has attracted more than 850 companies, including almost 100 American firms. Most companies are set up to re-export goods through Dubai to other markets, the largest being Iran and India. Here are some of the main benefits:

  • 100% foreign ownership
  • 100% repatriation of capital and profits
  • No minimum capital investment
  • A shareholder's liability is limited to the amount of its paid-up share capital
  • No currency restrictions
  • No corporate taxes
  • No personal income taxes
  • Ready-made factories and warehouses
  • Excellent infrastructure, support services and communications
  • Access to a consumer market of 1.4 billion people.
