UAE SAIF Zone Company Registration

UAE SAIF Zone Company Registration

Globevisa helps clients register companies in the UAE Free Trade Zone. The company can operate locally and benefit from the free trade zone tax incentives (only 5% VAT for local operations, with 20 designated free trade zones are VAT-exempt). If the company operates outside the UAE, no tax is liable to the UAE as the UAE tax laws and regulations, only income derived from the relevant emirates in the UAE is taxable.
