JAFZA Offshore

Dubai is known as the business capital of the Middle East, thanks to its liberal economy, cosmopolitan culture, the presence of special economic zones, and its strategic location. Realizing the importance of attracting foreign investment early on, Dubai’s progressive Government and the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA) on January 13, 2003, introduced Jebel Ali Free Zone Offshore Companies Regulations or the JAFZA Offshore Regulations. This provided international companies the opportunity for offshore company registration in Dubai and Jebel Ali Offshore, and experience sustainable development & operational transparency while enjoying all the benefits of a tax haven.
