Advantages of Setting Up Your
Offshore Company


Offshore companies aren’t required to publish any financial information, or share their directors’ & shareholders’ personal details on public records. There is also no requirement for offshore businesses to be audited.

Fewer Liabilities

With an offshore company, there’s assurance that its possessions and assets are protected in the case of any legal pursuits. They also enable asset protection for investors, creating a legal wall between the company’s resources and any third parties.

Avenue to International Expansion

Forming an offshore company that has a UAE-based address will immediately create credibility for a business, opening new opportunities for international partnerships and activities. At the same time it’ll allow you to open a UAE bank account, which gives you unparalleled access to multiple currencies and global transactions.

Tax Incentives

In 2023, the UAE implemented a corporate tax rate of 9%. However, offshore companies, as they are not eligible to operate their businesses within the country, are exempt from this tax.
