Offshore companies are ideal if you want an entity to conduct business internationally but have no plans to do business within the UAE.



Offshore companies are ideal if you require a tax-efficient structure to hold your equity in an onshore business in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.  



Also known as International Business Companies (IBCs), offshore companies are relatively quick and inexpensive to set up and manage.
