The main advantage offered by the UAE free zones is that foreign investors can retain 100% of their businesses without the need for a local partner. Outside of free zones, non-UAE residents are not allowed a majority stake in their business if that business requires a commercial or industrial license, and must therefore set up with a local partner who takes a minimum ownership of 51%. Other free zone financial incentives include a 0% corporate and income tax rate, no customs duties levied on imports and exports, and the option to repatriate 100% of the profits from the business.
