The Free Zone was established in the year 1988 and it acquired independent status through Decree No. 3 of 1996 issued by the Ruler of Ajman, H.H. Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuami.

Ajman Free Zone offers numerous company set-up products including Ajman Free Zone Offshore which is one of the most well-known company products in the United Arab Emirates. Ajman Free Zone has seen a rapid increase in the offshore company set-ups in the recent years.

You can set up either an Ajman Offshore company or Ajman International Business Company (IBC). Both of these company types have the same legal standing.

Just like other jurisdictions in the UAE and around the world, Ajman Free Zone Offshore companies offer zero taxation, confidentiality, privacy and security to the shareholders and directors of companies. There is no yearly requirement to file audit reports.

The legal address of the offshore company in Ajman is provided by the registered agent.

Legal Inz is Ajman Offshore Registered Agent and offers company set-up at the lowest cost. Ajman Offshore company cost is comparable to RAK offshore company cost.

1. Process of Ajman Offshore Company Formation

The process of registration of offshore companies in Ajman is fairly simple and straight forward.

The steps for the company registration in Ajman are as follows:

Step 1 – Place your order for Ajman Offshore Company Formation

Place your order through our website choosing the Ajman Offshore company as your desired form of company formation.

Timeline: We will open your file on the same working day basis upon the receipt of your order and payment.

Step 2 – We will prepare application and memorandum and articles of association

We will prepare your company formation application as well as the memorandum and articles of association for the new company.  At this stage, we also reserve the name of your company with Ajman Free Zone.

Timeline: The preparation of these documents takes one (1) working day assuming that we have already received the required documents from you.

Step 3 – You will sign application and memorandum and articles of association

At this stage, you will visit our offices to sign the application and memorandum and articles of association of your company. If you are not present in the UAE, you may send us the originals of these documents after your signatures through courier. This also means that the presence of shareholders in the UAE is not mandatory for the formation of an offshore company with Ajman Free Zone. There is no requirement for the company to have any rented offices in the UAE or elsewhere.

Timeline: The signing can be carried out in our offices on the same working day basis. However, if you are not present in the UAE and would like to send us the documents by courier, the timeframe will vary on a case-to-case basis.

Step 4 – We register your Ajman Offshore company

Once we have received the signed documents, we will submit these documents to Ajman Free Zone for the formation of your company. Ajman Free Zone will issue the following documents once your company has been registered:

  1. Certificate of incorporation (which is sometimes referred to as Ajman Offshore License or Ajman Free Zone Offshore License).
  2. Memorandum and articles of association.
  3. Register of members, directors and secretary.

The share certificate and company stamps can be arranged by as additional documents based on your requirements.

Timeframe: The process of setting up offshore companies in Ajman is quicker than other jurisdictions. Once the required documents have been prepared, signed and delivered to the Ajman Free Zone Authority, it typically takes 1-2 working days to issue the above documents. This timeframe may, however, vary if the company has a complex shareholding structure.

2. Activities You Can Choose From

You can choose from a broad range of activities for your Ajman offshore company. Some examples of these activities are provided below:

  1. Professional services.
  2. Trading in specific products and general trading.
  3. Consultancy services.
  4. Holding company (buying, holding or selling shares in companies).
  5. Real estate ownership in Ajman and other places subject to the local laws.
  6. International services.
  7. Shipping and ship management companies.

The above activities can only be carried out by the company outside the UAE. It is not possible for you to carry out any business activities inside the UAE through any offshore companies in the UAE. 

3. Required Documents and Information

The following documents/information will be required by us in order to form your company:

  1. Passport copy of each shareholder, director and secretary. These can be the same individual. If the shareholder is a corporate entity, we will need the passport copies of the shareholders of the corporate entity until the individual shareholders in the chain of ownership.
  2. Proof of residence for each shareholder, director and secretary in English language (i.e. utility bill).
  3. At least three (3) proposed name(s) of the company.
  4. A description of the activities of the company.

4. Start of Activity and Bank Accounts

Once your company has been registered, you can start the business activity straight away. You can also open a bank account for your company in the UAE or outside. We work closely with various banks in the UAE and outside to open corporate bank accounts for Ajman Offshore companies.

It is important to note that you cannot obtain a UAE residence visa through an offshore company. If you have any requirements to obtain UAE residence visas, you should consider setting-up a free zone or mainland company.

  2. If the shareholder is a corporate entity, passport copies of the ultimate shareholders of the corporate entity will be required in addition to the corporate documents of all legal entities falling within the chain of shareholding up to the individual shareholders. If the corporate shareholder is based outside the UAE, the corporate documents of such shareholder will be required to be legalized and authenticated in the country of origin and the UAE. We can assist with the process of legalization and authentication.
