As per the ruling issued in 2011, entities (a free zone company or a free zone establishment) operating in free zones can open branches in Dubai. As per Law No. 13 of 2011 on business registration and licensing in the Emirate, it was announced that free zone companies are allowed to conduct business within Dubai (outside their free zone) once they have a DED license or set up a branch in mainland Dubai.
A freezone entity can do business in the Rest of GCC and Internationally from its freezone setup. Also, law no. 13 issued in 2011, states that free zone companies can set up a branch in Dubai to trade legally, without the need of a local sponsor. They will, however, need to have a local service agent. According to the law, the local service agent can be a UAE national or a UAE company which will sponsor employees for the Dubai branch of a free zone company at the Ministry of Labour. The local service agent will have no rights of voting or decision-making in the company.
Various private sources like banks and investment groups provide financing options, given the entity is more than 2 years old and the business owner is a resident of UAE. Neither the Government of Dubai/UAE nor the Free Zone authority will provide any financing.
As per UAE Laws, you are allowed to receive or transfer capital and profits outside the country.
