Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for LFL International Group

A Dubai Freezone is a specially designated area within Dubai that offers a wealth of benefits for foreign investors looking to establish their businesses. These benefits include 100% foreign ownership, exemption from certain taxes, and more relaxed regulations compared to other areas. This creates an inviting environment for international companies to set up operations, offering a strategic gateway to regional and global markets.

Yes, but with certain limitations. While businesses in Dubai Free zones are primarily geared towards serving international markets, they can engage in trading within the local UAE market indirectly. This typically involves working through local distributors, wholesalers, or agents. Direct sales in the local market are possible but may require additional approvals and adherence to specific local regulations.

Choosing a Freezone for your business setup can be highly advantageous, depending on your specific business needs and objectives. Free zones offer unique benefits such as 100% foreign ownership, tax exemptions, and ease of doing business, making them

an attractive option for many investors. However, it's important to consider the nature of your business, your target market, and your long-term goals when deciding between a Freezone setup, a mainland company, or an offshore company. Each option has its own set of regulations, benefits, and limitations.

Freezone companies are generally established to do business internationally or within the same Freezone. However, they can trade with mainland companies indirectly. For trading tangible goods, Freezone companies can either export their products internationally, trade with other Freezone companies, or collaborate with a local distributor or service agent to access the mainland market. It's important to note that engaging with the mainland market directly may involve additional regulations and requirements.
