Ras Al Khaimah Free Zone Company Formation

RAK Free Zone is located in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah and is among the fastest growing free zones in the United Arab Emirates. Currently there are more than 8,000 active RAK companies registered in RAK Free Zone in UAE, whose owners are foreign citizens from more than 100 countries.  

RAK Freezone was awarded 7-best free zones of the Middle East. It comprises of four (4) special zones that can satisfy requirements of any investor: 1) business park for clients that need to rent an office; 2) industrial park for companies that are operating in heavy industries; 3) techno park for trading companies and light industries; 4) academic zone for educational institutions.

RAK UAE Free Zone is well-represented in the international market and has representative offices in Turkey, India and Germany.

RAK Free Zone companies may rent in the free zone flexi-desks, flexi-offices, standard offices and warehouses, manufacturing facilities and land. Very often flexi-desks are mistaken for RAK Free Zone virtual office. RAK Free Zone company setup is impossible with virtual office, as this option does not exist in general. What is offered is a flexi-desk facility, which is a physical workstation (a chair and a desk) in a business center for use of up to 10 hours per week.

Not everyone knows that there is RAK Free Zone Dubai office available right in Downtown area next to famous Burj Khalifa. So you can access RAK Free Zone office in Dubai by metro or car reaching Dubai Mall station. RAK Free Zone Dubai streamlined all processes related to both RAK Free Zone company formation and resident visa processing. Now there is no longer any need to travel from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah emirate. Instead, in a matter of ten to twenty minutes you are in RAK Free Zone office Dubai.

Registration authority is constantly working on improving business climate in the free zone and it strives to make conditions for conducting business in the free zone more favorable. As a result, recently RAK Free Zone company setup costs were decreased and through partnership with banks installment payment plans were offered. In addition to RAK Free Zone license costs decrease, registration authority waived several years ago the requirement to provide annually audited financial statements and decreased share capital requirement from AED 100,000 to AED 1,000 only. All this made RAK Zree zone license and RAK Freezone business setup process easier and the setup process in general became more affordable.
