Our business setup solutions come complete with the preparation, review, attestation, and submission of articles of association, as well as all required company documents.

Our experts have completed thousands of formations over the years, from the simplest corporate structure to the most complex and labor-intensive to set up, including the following:

  • Free Zone Company (FZCo) - Our business setup team can establish a Free Zone Company in JAFZA with two to fifty individuals or companies as shareholders.
  • Free Zone Establishment (FZE) - The liability of an FZE is limited to the rendered capital. Whether a company or an individual, our business setup specialists can help with the formation of a free zone establishment with a single shareholder.
  • Branch Company - Our experts can set up a branch of a company that's established outside the jurisdiction of JAFZA. A company branch must operate under the name of the parent company and conduct identical/similar business activities.
