11 Jun SHAMS – Sharjah’s brand new free zone
For all the creative types out there, Sharjah has just opened a free zone specifically for you. Shams, short for Sharjah Media City, is now issuing licenses. The new free zone offers entrepreneurs, creatives, freelancers, startups, and SMEs some interesting options when it comes to choosing your next incorporation destination.
With the opening of Shams, the UAE has another option for creative minds from around the world to start their new company or expand their business. It’s a great time to be a creative! To help them stand out from the competition, SHAMS has a number of key selling points:
For all young businesses, keeping costs to a minimum early on is essential. Shams clearly understands this as they have some very competitive license rates. Another interesting benefit is Shams’ flexible visa options, which give you cost-effective ways to staff your business. Unlike other free zones, these options aren’t reliant on your business having physical premises (which is perfect when you’re just starting out).
Practicality and Convenience
Shams has the support and speed of service to process all formation paperwork rapidly, meaning your business can be up and running in next to no time. We also like the fact that you don’t need to be physically present in the UAE for setup. And if you’re already based in the UAE, an NOC is not required.
