Jebel Ali Free Zone

The Jebel Ali Free Zone, created in 1985, was the first of these economic zones in Dubai, is an effort to diversify and strengthen Dubai's economic base. This free zone offers facilities to satisfy the needs of virtually every business and industrial enterprise. The free zone is also noted for the considerable incentives it offers, most importantly that companies operating in the zone are not required to pay personal or corporate taxes for a period of 15 years. In addition, this 15-year period is renewable for another 15 years.

The government has since invested billions of dollars into infrastructure and programs to coax foreign investors to the region. This Free Zone is not entirely tax free, but its incentives make it come very close. Companies which are run within the Jebel Ali Free Zone are given a total pass on all corporate and personal taxation for a period of fifteen years. At the end of this fifteen year period, a request may be made to be tax exempt for another fifteen years - in effect offering the potential for an indefinite tax free status. In addition, there are no import or export taxes on companies within the Jebel Ali Free Zone.
