Company Types

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

Why TBA

What separates us from our competitors is that our services don’t end with the registration of your company. We offer a wide range of additional services others can’t or just won’t offer, such as lifetime free support.

Whilst most providers either specialise on personalized consultation at relatively high rates or run bulk registration factories without any support, we want to offer the positive aspects of both types.

Therefore TBA combines professional advice, worldwide registration services, reasonable fees, customized order processing, lifetime support and fast processing. Where others see company formation services as a bulk registration with no support and no individual assistance, we do care about your business needs.
