HI Fcjb1970, yes VZ does have a simple straight forward model but there are companies out there which are about 15,000AED cheaper, but you get what you pay for in this life so it maybe false economy to go with the cheaper companies. I will be setting up a company in the next 2-3 months so will report back with some info at this time. Havent made up my mind who I will use yet. VZ did see seem a professional outfit when I visited their office in Jumeriah.

I also checked with a few agents, the packages do sound good as an overview but adding their consultancy services burdens your pockets by another 10-15k. Setting up Biz in Ajman or RAKIA is pretty simple and easy to DIY.

I have dealt with both free zones right from establishment to getting visas, would be glad to help anyone who could use some help. drop me an email or call me on xxxxxx. There are no fees so don't worry

Does anyone know what exactly you need to get a trade license in a free trade zone? First I was told we needed proof of "intent to lease", then I was told we needed to sign a lease, now being told the space needs to be built out and ready to occupy. It seems like it shouldn't be this hard!

some Freezones may need a NOC letter from your sponsor but that can be worked out if you speak to them directly. Freezones in Ajman and RAK are cheaper and easier to start, you can live anywhere in UAE with visas issued from them, and operate from home or a virtual office. Good for companies who just need an online presence.

If its a service you are planning to sell than these are the professional business license costs in Dubai ...

Professional service licence cost - 6 to 8k approx
sponsorship Local Sponsor - 6 to 8k approx
Company Immigration Card and Company Labour Card - 3500 AED
Rent of the Shop or Office - (depends on where which area you rent)

The renewal cost is the same each year...
