As the world’s largest and fastest growing free zone, DMCC is the ideal place to set up your company quickly and grow your business beyond Dubai’s borders. Awarded twice as the Global Free Zone by Financial Times’ FDI Magazine, DMCC registers approximately 170 companies every month, 95% of which are new to Dubai. Today, it is home to over 13,000 companies and their member base ranges from start-ups to large corporates who all benefit from DMCC’s reputation as a world class business hub.

DMCC allows two legal structures for the conduction of the business:

  • Free Zone Limited Liability Company (FZ-LLC): a separate legal entity, with shareholders as individuals and/or corporates. The minimum capital requirement for incorporation depends on the business activity.

  • Branch of Foreign or UAE Company: a legally dependent entity that is part of the parent company. It conducts all or some of the operations inherent in the parent’s business. Share capital is not required.

Each license will be specific to selected activities, and companies can also apply for multiple licenses or for a general trading license. There are three categories of licenses: Trading, Service and Industrial.
