In 2015, it was $100,800 and it increased to $101,300 in 2016 and $102,100 in 2017. So, a US husband & wife can set up company in UAE and both can earn salary tax free up to 102,100 X 2.

Note: To qualify for the Foreign Earned Income exclusion, US Citizen should be bona fide resident of a foreign country
