Offshore Company Formation in UAE

It’s common to have a company setup in a setting that ticks all your requirement boxes. While for some, the requirements are different than others, to some extent, privacy, security, and profitability is something that is desired across the board. The Offshore jurisdiction offers exactly this. With Business Link, you can set up a successful Offshore business today.

What is an Offshore Company?

Offshore companies in the UAE are ones that have been set up to operate from outside the registered location of ownership. The Offshore license provides a way for investors looking to do business in the country to set up their companies without being physically present for the setup process and to carry out their operations remotely as well.

Offshore companies are registered much differently than Mainland and Free Zone companies. To operate in this jurisdiction, investors are issued only a certificate of incorporation and not a traditional business license to start their business operations. This regulation proves to be highly beneficial as it aids in the speedy processing of your application. This also means Offshore companies are prohibited from doing business within the UAE, and can only participate in international trade.

Benefits of opening a company in the UAE offshore

Particularly important for high-net-worth individuals, this feature allows you to steer clear of any unforeseen and unwanted legal hindrances, as well as aids in safeguarding your valuable assets. Offering the sort of security and protection that isn’t available for those operating a Mainland or a Free Zone company – the Offshore license builds a legal wall of sorts to enable your assets to remain in a safe and secure setting.

The Offshore license has long been popular among foreign investors for whom privacy and protection is key. Offshore businesses in the UAE are not obliged to publish any information regarding their company, shareholders, or their financial information anywhere in the public domain. These companies are also exempt from having to file financial accounts or carry out annual audits for their internal financial operations. The Offshore authorities are committed to protecting your privacy and refrain from sharing your information until and unless you become a subject of a legal investigation.

Those having invested in the UAE Offshores are completely exempt from income, corporate, and personal tax. This is a highly beneficial feature that massively attracts foreign investors, which in turn brings in further investment and benefits the country’s economy.

Offshore regions for business setup

Launched in 2003 in collaboration with the Dubai Government, the JAFZA Offshore is an ideal location for foreign investors that are looking to set up their businesses in the region. Since JAFZA in itself is a Free Zone region, offshore companies set up here will be regulated by the Free Zone Authority. A benefit available to Offshore companies in the JAFZA Offshore is that they can purchase property in Dubai – and it’s the only Offshore jurisdiction permitting this.

Established and regulated by the Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA), the RAK Offshore was launched in 2007. Within a year of its inception, it became home to 1,900 International Business Companies (IBC). The RAK Offshore zone is popularly known to be one such zone that provided more flexibility than any other offshore location in the UAE.

Though the Ajman Offshore was the last to be developed, as compared to the JAFZA and RAK Offshores, it prides itself on being the most economical offshore, and registering to set up your business here is comparatively the least time-consuming.

While a lot of the details and regulations that govern these Offshore jurisdictions are more or less the same, there are plenty that are specific to each one. To understand these better, it’s important to work with a qualified consultancy firm that’s up to date with ever-changing laws to ensure there are no unnecessary delays affecting your business venture.
