Offshore companies are a mix of features that are flexible enough to be denoted as a cooperative entity. Even though Dubai offshore company formation may not be considered as a substitute of Dubai freezone company setup, but it still enjoys equal rights and benefits that any freezone company would.
One major downside for some people having offshore companies is that they can run their businesses outside the United Arab Emirates but they can’t shift or move their companies or businesses to the UAE. Any kind of business activity inside the country will be prohibited unless you have a certain permit or allowance that lets you trade in and out without getting into any trouble.
But the best thing about these offshore companies is that they can enjoy the same benefits as any freezone company would. They can access their bank accounts from foreign and make purchases or sales through a UAE based bank. Along with that, properties in the UAE can be owned, bought or sold and its profits or loses, everything will be allowed to be saved in the UAE bank accounts. Not only properties but pre-designed or plots can also be kept under the possession of an owner of any kind of offshore company that has the freezone license.
Offshore companies are usually owned by businesses that do trading in and out of the UAE, already running their business organizations, and that is why they don’t much care about the downsides. An offshore company also does not require any kind of minimum amount of capital to get it started, unlike the freezone companies which have to show a minimum capital depending on the type of business that they will be running in order to acquire a license.
Before getting yourself into any kind of license acquiring activities, make sure that you contact a consultant who would guide you through the processes and help you understand the rules and laws much better so that you don’t get yourself into any kind of unwanted situation which would later leave you in a bad position.
Also talking to experienced people will also help you a lot as you can learn from them and avoid making the mistakes that they did so you can get things done the right way.
