Ajman Free Zone

The Ajman Free Zone or AFZ as it is commonly referred to is one of the leading freezones in the UAE. In 1988, it was part of a major industrial development movement in Ajman which attracted dozens of businesses from across the world. The majority of companies flocked to invest in Ajman Freezone because it offered an excellent mix of stability, tax-free environment and relative ease of setting up a business. It is for these reasons that Ajman Free Zone is still considered by investors wanting to start a free zone company in the UAE.

Ajman Free Zone ensures that businesses start getting their return on investment faster by not levying taxes coupled with a relatively high and cost-effective living standard. Ajman Free Zone continues to develop by investing millions of Dirhams each year on an ever expanding one million square meters of free zone space.

If you want to start a free zone company in Ajman be rest assured that it's a good decision. However, despite the free zone authority making registration and licensing incredibly easy and quick, lack of documentation on a business's part or incomplete procedural formalities can slow down the process. Incorporating a free zone company for some business types may also not be as straightforward as it first seems. That said at Fast Free Zone we can help businesses setup their services or start selling their products in AJZ within no time!
