While the economy in European jurisdictions is being weakened by the COVID-19 crisis and the Russian invasion, Dubai offers the perfect alternative to establish and expand business. With its future-oriented thinking, the city offers attractive conditions for all sectors.

Dubai has an extremely favourable tax policy. There is no income or corporation tax, only VAT at a rate of 5%. In addition, Dubai offers a high level of political and economic stability and is an important financial center in the Middle East thanks to the DIFC (Dubai International Financial Center).

Due to its geographically advantageous location and its excellent infrastructure, Dubai is one of the largest and most important trading hubs, opening up extensive sales markets such as Abu Dhabi or India. In 2018, its non-oil trading volume was $300 billion. There are also more than 30 free trade zones in Dubai.[1]
