RAK free trade zone starts e-notary services
Ras Al Khaimah, June 11, 2014
The Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone said it has brought a notary public on site to help clients authenticate documents that they need to set up their companies.
Announcing this, Peter Fort, the CEO said: “The addition of notary services, combined with the ability to pay for free zone services by credit card, as well as getting fast-tracked visas and applying for Emirates ID cards without ever leaving the building, demonstrates clearly that the RAK Free Trade Zone is constantly finding new ways to provide value-added services to its clients.”
“Instead of going to court to get their business documents notarised, to the Emirates ID office to get their legally required identification cards, or to the immigration office to wait in line for visas, the free zone clients can take care of everything they need to set up their companies in a one-stop shop at the free zone,” stated Fort.
“This significant support system means that investors can spend less of their valuable time sifting through bureaucratic red tape, and more on establishing profitable businesses,” he added.
Earlier this year, the free trade zone had signed a MoU with RAK Courts to acquire the services of the notary public. The notary began working this month in the free zone’s client relations department to better assist the over 7,500 international companies which have set up shop there.
The notary and other new benefits complement its Mazeed service desk, which provides ongoing company set-up support, including designing corporate identity materials, insurance, advertising, event management, business cards, training, recruitment, and other assistance.
“This year, RAK Free Trade Zone plans to make it easier and more convenient than ever before for investors to do business in the free zone,” said Fort.-TradeArabia News Service
