Corporate tax exemptions and incentives in DMCC

DMCC can be considered a tax haven, as the companies incorporated here can benefit from various tax exemptions. DMCC has 0% corporate tax, allows 100% foreign ownership, does not apply an income tax and does not impose restrictions on capital repatriation. The rules mentioned above are applicable for the first 50 years after the company’s incorporation in DMCC. In case your company has operations in the field of pharmaceutics, the DMCC legislation no longer allows a 100% foreign ownership; our Dubai lawyers can offer you more details on this procedure applied in this case. A company can receive a permit to function in DMCC in the case of the following incorporation types:
