Costs and Fees
All services provided by Free Zone Aruba (FZA) in relation to the admissions procedure are free of charge. However, there are a few costs and fees one should bear in mind for budget purposes.
The startup cost includes notary charges. These are paid directly to the notary to incorporate a corporation (NV) or limited liability company (VBA). The current notary charges are about Afl. 2500,- (+/-US$1500,-).
Freezone Facility Charge
Once a free zone company is admitted to the Free Zone it is required to pay a Freezone Facility Charge (FFC). The FFC is charged based on a bracketed system, which is shown in the following table:
Turnover amount in Afl. FFC
200,000,001 and higher 0.01%
(US $ 1 = Afl. 1.79)
The FFC table is divided in four turnover brackets, with a lowered FFC percentage for each bracket. The higher the turnover amount, the less FFC is paid in proportion to the company’s revenues. The FFC will be charged on a monthly basis, figured over the previous month.
We use the FFC to cover various facilities and investments, such as security, maintenance, marketing, promotion and further development of the Free Zone. If you would like to receive more information about pricing of warehouse, offices or construction plots, please contact us.
