Time: 3−6 months on average.
A simplified liquidation procedure is provided for single-party companies (SoleProprietorship / Establishment).
Liquidation of the Free Zone Company
Each Free Zone has its own requirements and nuances in the company liquidation process. It is broadly similar to the Mainland company liquidation process, but some steps are different. For example, companies in certain Freezones do not have to make a publication in local newspapers. In addition, it is often possible to go through the liquidation process via an electronic portal, which is a single window of communication with the freezone administration.

Time: it depends on the particular freezone. Generally quicker than a Mainland company liquidation.
