Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) is a cost-effective gateway for business set-up in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that allows access to markets across Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. Its geographical location allows companies to easily take advantage of the trade flows between East and West.
Less than an hour's drive from Dubai, RAK FTZ is one of the fastest-growing free zones in the UAE, and the investment destination of choice for more than 7,500 companies from over 100 countries, representing more than 50 industry sectors.
Established in 2000 to provide custom-made solutions, RAK FTZ allows clients to start business and expand operations in a completely tax-free environment and fast-track visas. In addition, RAK FTZ offers companies the freedom to source labour and materials globally, and take advantage of business support services such as advertising, procurement, event management, recruitment and training assistance.
RAK FTZ comprises four specialised free zone parks that are tailored to individual company needs, including:
In addition to award-winning service, RAK FTZ provides the same free zone benefits - including 100% foreign ownership and world-class, ready-made facilities - that are available elsewhere in the UAE, but that facilitate company formation and expansion for substantially lower costs, allowing for maximum return on investment.
