Offshore Company Setup

“Offshore company Setup” is a term used to define any business or investment made outside the country of residence, this type of formation is mostly preferred by businessmen who wants to have a business registered in a tax-free state but they manage the business from anywhere in the world.

UAE offshore incorporation helps you to run your business or asset ownership in the Middle East in the most profitable manner. Especially because you avoid the cumbersome process of having the offshore incorporation company documents attested by various embassies and Ministries of Foreign Affairs

For your offshore incorporation in UAE, there exist many service providers offering a competitive offshore package. Such packages include services for operating your business, hiring local employees, entering into agreements, renting office space, selling goods and company services, drafting contracts and offering investments, taxation and banking advice.

As UAE offshore incorporation requires an agent, you will need to choose one in order to register your company. The offshore package offered by any service provider stipulates that the agent representing the service provider would act as a link between the newly formed offshore enterprise and the local government.

WIS Business Setup Services provides end-to-end corporate business solutions and offshore company registration in Dubai & UAE.
