Dubai – one of the Arab Emirates – has become a true international business center in recent years, mainly due to its pro-business policy and its flexible legal and tax system, which allows investors to optimize the taxation of their company, enjoying a brand image and prestige.

An offshore company in Dubai is a company registered in the Arab Emirates for tax purposes, while its commercial activities can be carried out outside the country.

The incorporation of offshore companies in the UAE has, in recent years, been the preferred form of business establishment for investors seeking tax benefits by capitalizing on global markets and for the investor who wishes to carry out their business activities outside of the UAE. Entrepreneurs or large corporate entities create offshore companies in the UAE with the sole objective of strengthening the management of investors’ wealth and the protection of their assets.
