Offshore Company Registration in UAE

When considering offshore company registration in UAE, several factors come into play. These include the applicable laws and regulations, the political and geopolitical climate, the nature of the business, and the type of assets to be held.

Two top offshore jurisdictions in the UAE are RAK International Corporate Centre (RAK ICC) and Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA). Both jurisdictions allow 100% foreign ownership and offer tax-free environments with no income tax or corporate tax. The UAE has also entered into Avoidance of Double Taxation Treaty Agreements (DTTAs) with over 110 countries.

RAK ICC is known for being a cost-effective and efficient option, often completing incorporation within a few days. It boasts a strong presence with over 14,000 companies across 50 sectors. On the other hand, JAFZA and RAK ICC offshore companies are unique in that they are permitted to own property in the emirate of Dubai.

All offshore companies in the UAE have the ability to open multi-currency accounts and conduct international business operations.

Common Applications of an Offshore Company

International Trading

Like e-commerce, benefits from offshore structures for cross-border transactions. Key considerations include establishing a Permanent Establishment (PE) and complying with transfer pricing rules. PE ensures compliance with local tax laws, while transfer pricing rules govern fair transactions between related entities. Careful attention to these factors enables a strong offshore structure for international trading.

Tax Benefits

Professional practitioners are primarily motivated by tax reduction when opting for offshore companies. This allows for deferring income tax or even eliminating it entirely through strategies involving renunciation of citizenship. The reputation of the chosen jurisdiction is also crucial in assisting clients to claim expense deductions and avoid unnecessary inquiries from tax authorities.

IP Holding

When structuring a company with intellectual property (IP) assets like patents and trademarks, selecting a jurisdiction with low or zero corporate income tax and favorable tax treatment for royalties and dividends is beneficial. However, it is crucial to also prioritize a country with strong legal protections for intellectual property rights (IPR). This ensures effective safeguarding and protection of the company's valuable IP assets.

Holding Company for Shares and Real Estate

An offshore investment holding structure provides a valuable separation between personal and business assets, offering an additional layer of protection in the event of a lawsuit. Furthermore, it offers enhanced flexibility for diversification by accommodating various types of assets. Certain jurisdictions even offer advantageous legislation specifically tailored to passive holding activities, further benefiting investors in offshore investment structures.

Redefining Wealth Succession Planning

The field of private wealth management extensively utilizes various tools and structures such as Trusts, Foundations, Private Trust Companies, and Offshore Family Investment Companies. These specialized entities enable intentional tax planning and the seamless transfer of wealth to future generations.

Broker/Forex/Coin Trading in Offshore States

Offshore states offer favorable conditions for broker/forex/coin trading, thanks to their relaxed regulations and open markets. This makes them attractive for blockchain ventures, as licensing and capital requirements are typically less of a concern for participants like sole traders, brokers, and private investment funds.

International Business Expansion for Tax Optimization

Whether driven by tax considerations or not, a successful strategy for expanding internationally requires careful attention to tax implications. This involves conducting a comprehensive review of the group's structure to assess the necessity of existing entities and establishing a presence in new locations to achieve improved tax efficiency.


e-Commerce businesses thrive with offshore structures as they are not limited by physical boundaries. However, choosing the right offshore jurisdiction necessitates careful planning considering factors such as sales tax, payment processing gateways, and hosting considerations for establishing a proper business presence.
