Dubai Outsource Zone (DOZ)
was established in 2007 to meet the demands of outsource companies
established here, such as Human Resources outsource, IT or call center outsource businesses. DOZ
offers to the investors interested in opening a company in Dubai
the infrastructure needed for various business activities – management, logistics, renting office spaces, security and many others; our lawyers in Dubai
can offer you more information on the business market in DOZ
and its legislation.
Corporate environment in DOZ
The DOZ legislation
specifies that foreign investors can only choose from two legal structures
: either a free zone limited liability company (FZ LLC)
, either a branch of a local or foreign company
. Setting up a business
here is encouraged by a set of tax exemptions
and, as such, companies are not required to pay the corporate tax
for 50 years after the incorporation process in DOZ
; also, the DOZ legislation
offers exemptions on personal income tax
for 50 years.
Companies located in DOZ
can benefit of several incentives, such as full repatriation of profits or full foreign ownership; you can find out more on this subject from our law firm in Dubai
The registration of a company is done under the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone Authority; you should know that the incorporation process in DOZ is simple for both legal structures, but FZ LLC registration requires more documentation.

, the local authorities will ask you to provide the following documents:
• investor’s and manager’s personal information;
