RAK Investment Authority offers investors the choice of setting up either a Free Zone company or a Non Free Zone company, depending on their requirements.

The Free Zone offers the benefits of 100% foreign ownership as well as exemption from customs duties within the Zone. This is best suited for export oriented companies whose primary market is outside the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region or for trading and service entities.

Products manufactured in the Non Free Zone can be exported to all Gulf Cooperation Council countries without any customs duties. The products will be required to meet the criteria of a minimum of 40% value addition to avail this advantage. Non Free Zone is ideal for manufacturing units whose primary market is within the Gulf Cooperation Council and Greater Arab Free Trade Area
