AJMAN FREE ZONE AUTHORITY: ACTIVITIES

There are three primary categories of activities for the Ajman Free Zone company formation. These are:

  • Service
  • Trading
  • Industrial

Furthermore, in 2019, AFZA launched a freelance permit subcategory, which allows individuals to get a license along with a three-year visa at the most affordable price.

The AFZA license can have either one service activity or three trading activities. Also, an upgrade of activities is not possible even if you pay additional fees

AJMAN FREE ZONE COMPANY SETUP COSTS

The cost of setting up a company in Ajman is relatively lower compared to any other Emirate. The Emirate also offers several different packages designed for different individuals and businesses. For instance, the lowest business setup package is designed for investors between 20 and 30 years of age and starts from as low as AED 5,000/license.

The fee for the rest of the packages is determined by business activities and visa allocations. Here is a breakdown of business setup cost (in AED) in Ajman per license:

  • Pioneer Package (20-30 years old business owners) – AED 5,000.
  • Freelance Package – AED 6,000.
  • Trading Package (eligible for 1 visa) – AED 13,535.
  • Service Package (eligible for 1 visa) – AED 16,135.

For individuals planning to get resident visas under their business, there is extra immigration fees as follows:

  • E-Channel deposit – AED 5,000
  • E-Channel registration fee – AED 2,000
  • Emirates ID, Visa, and medical evaluations – AED 2,800

As we mentioned earlier, AFZA free zone offers multiple instalments payment options for new companies. The costs are payable in 2, 3, or 6 instalments, depending on your needs. However, to get it you need to meet the requirements set by the Ajman Free Zone Authority.

The free zone requires you to pay for the instalments using cheques from a local UAE bank. If you decide to pay in 6 instalments, you can pay the first instalments in cash and the rest by cheque. Most of the expatriates don’t have a local bank account and so no bank cheques are available. In that case, it is possible to use a friend’s or relative’s cheques book along with a NOC “no-objection letter” that allows you to use their cheques.

AJMAN FREE ZONE COMPANY SETUP AND RENEWAL

SET UP

To incorporate a company in Ajman Free Zone is relatively simple and can take less than a day to be completed. However, it is not always a straightforward business for most individuals – so it is more than recommended to get help from a business setup consultant like FreeZoneMarket.
