Business Structure in the DTEC Free Zone

Before launching your venture in the DTEC Free Zone, it’s important to select the right legal structure. Both options require registration with the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authorities. Here’s a breakdown of the two main choices:
  • Free Zone Establishment (FZE): Ideal for solopreneurs, this structure allows for a single shareholder, who can be either an individual or another company.
  • Free Zone Company (FZCO): This option caters to businesses with multiple shareholders, requiring a minimum of two. Shareholders can be a mix of individuals and other companies.
