New company formation with SPC Free Zone is very straightforward, as the setup process focuses on providing ease, convenience, and accessibility. It is an innovative, consumer-focused free zone that continuously strives to provide the highest quality of service, whilst identifying and providing solutions for issues that entrepreneurs and investors face during new business setup. It is constantly looking at updating its processes in order to better suit customer needs and has now simplified the process by reducing its operations time.

Business setup in the digital age

Through the integration of advanced technology in their seamless digital system, the physical presence of the new business owner is not required. The owner could be residing anywhere in the world and will still be able to remotely set up their company in the UAE. This is possible due to the incorporation of a state-of-the-art online ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) portal which the owner, as well as all shareholders, managers and directors of the business can access. SPC Free Zone lets the owner digitally process everything on their own, including making payments through online channels. This is hassle-free and allows the owner to allocate valuable time and resources into their new business proposition, whilst eliminating the need for lengthy paperwork, having to visit different government entities for initial setup requirements, and eradicating extended waiting times.

The power of two hours

Two hours is the time needed to set up a new company with SPC Free Zone, which is a small chunk of your day. You can spend two hours in heavy traffic on the way home from your workplace - OR set up your own business in that same time frame. With Expo 2020 right around the corner, you can have your business established right in time for the consumer traffic that the Expo will draw into the UAE. There are no overly tiresome initial setup activities involved, which is why you can envision an idea and have the business come to life as early as today.
