A Shams limited liability company (LLC) is an independent entity whereby the company structure separates the owners and shareholders from the company. Hence the liabilities of the company, whether arising in contract or otherwise, are the company’s liabilities and not the personal liabilities of the shareholders. Equally the company’s assets are the company’s assets and not the personal assets of the shareholders. Shams Free Zone, also known as Sharjah Media City, is just 5 minutes from Sharjah International Airport and 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport. Shams Free Zone issues service, trade and industrial licenses. It welcomes more than 200 business activities, covering everything from accounting and auditing to publishing and wholesale.
