Does a business location really matter The upfront view

, Growth

Deciding a location to launch a business is a critical process. It is long-term decision which should be taken into consideration not only with the present requirement but also with its future expansion plans. Deciding a poor location may be expensive and sometimes a chief cause of business failure.

Location is important for businesses in the retail, hospitality trades, service, manufacturing ventures etc., which have costs as advertising, promotion, and distribution and have exposure to their target market. Before finalizing the location just analyze considering:

  • Is the location suitably zoned?
  • Does the location project the right image about your venture?
  • Is the location suitable for target market?
  • Have you assessed the site for sales, economic and demographic factors and competition?
  • Is the shipping goods cost – to and fro is feasible?
  • Will zoning limitations conflict with future needs?
For starters, there is much more to consider while setting up a company in the UAE. What if an area responds to all the considerations? Free Zone in UAE are isolated areas, have been set up by the government for foreign business vendors.

The UAE is a Constitutional Federation of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah, and are cumulatively a home to approximately more than 50 free zones. Free Zones are the areas which are developed around one or more trading industries and generally issue licenses to businesses within those defined categories.
