Dubai-Airport-Freezone-DAFZAQ. What is a free zone? Why do some companies opt to set up their business in free zones?

A. In general, a free zone or free trade zone may be described as a portion of a city or a clearly designated area in a country apportioned for business activities such as the receipt and storage of goods without any import duties, and where commercial/industrial operations may be carried on and certain taxes or restrictions on business or trade do not apply.

What makes free trade zones attractive for business is the tax exemption they offer; and, especially in the UAE where regular companies are required to have a UAE national sponsor, the fact that businessmen get to enjoy 100% ownership and control of their business. Read more

You need to renew your car registration once every year. If you have purchased a new vehicle, the dealer will handle all formalities for the first year. From the second year onwards, you will have to renew your car registration.  Car registration takes place at the Dubai Traffic Department/other emirates traffic department or online and the vehicle testing at Tasjeel Centre Al Barsha, Tasjeel Centre Al Twar, Wasel Belhasa Vehicle Testing Centre in Al Jaddaf and Quick Registration in Al Ghusais (all open 24 hours).

It is worth noting if  a vehicle is not older than three years, it does not need to be tested. It is, therefore, not necessary for the customer to visit the service centre as the whole process can be done online.

Half an hour from start to finish! That’s how long it took me to renew my car registration at the traffic department in Al Barsha this morning. Remarkable when I think back to 15 years ago when I dared not go to get my car registered without our office PRO (Public Relations Officer) to guide me through every step, all the queues and manic hand waving.
