Offshore Company Setup

Create a global enterprise in a premier location.


Utilize the most alluring corporate structure to expand your company.

The International Business Company, also known as an offshore company, has gained popularity among foreign investors due to its tax-saving features, affordable formation costs, data security, and property rights.

Additionally, offshore businesses in the United Arab Emirates give you the chance to boost earnings, streamline documentation, and preserve your anonymity. The most sought-after location for establishing an offshore business is Ras Al Khaimah Emirate’s RAK International Corporate Centre (RAKICC). Adhering to international standards and best practices for international company formation, RAK ICC is a state-of-the-art registry of organizations.


Open an offshore business in the UAE

Without a Dubai trade license, RAK ICC Offshore Company is able to own freehold real estate properties in Dubai. Registered offshore companies can get a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from RAK ICC and register it with the Dubai Land Department in order to buy real estate property under the company name.

  • The UAE prohibits offshore companies from operating a physical office.
  • Members and shareholders are ineligible to apply for a UAE resident visa.
  • The business is able to keep a bank account both inside and outside the UAE.
  • Certificates of corporate tax exemption are available to offshore companies.
  • Is able to hold shares in any local, free zone, or IC company in the UAE.

Ideal circumstances for your business

RAKICC offshore businesses may only carry out business outside of the UAE and are not obliged to open physical offices there. For such an organization, a bank account in Dubai or any other Emirate is feasible. Not only are these businesses simple to keep up with—all they need to do is renew their registration annually—but they also don't need to submit yearly financial statements to the authorities.
