Doing Business in The UAE

The UAE economy is thriving and opportunities to do business in the country are many. The UAE’s currency, the dirham, which is pegged to the US dollar, is secure and freely convertible; there are no restrictions on profit transfer or capital repatriation; import duties are low (less than 4 per cent for virtually all goods and zero for items imported for use in free zones); labour costs are competitive; federal corporate tax and personal taxes are nil and numerous double taxation agreements and bilateral investment treaties are in place. In addition, the financial risk is minimal. These factors, combined with a strategic, accessible location for major regional markets, an excellent reliable infrastructure and an extremely pleasant, stable and safe working environment are key elements in attracting foreign investment.

The UAE is a contracting party to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) since 1994 and a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) since 1996. It is also a member of the Greater Arab Free-Trade Area (GAFTA) in which all Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states participate.

The UAE concluded Free Trade Agreements with Singapore and the AFTA bloc in 2008 and 2009 respectively, and is now cooperating with the GCC's negotiating team to conclude Free Trade Agreements with the EU, Japan, China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Australia, Korea and the Mercosur bloc comprising Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay.
