For what purposes an offshore in Dubai can be opened
Offshore companies, like most other companies, can enter into agreements, open bank accounts, buy and sell various products and services, and have property. Also, when registering offshore company in Dubai as a typical offshore company, you will not have to pay taxes in your home jurisdiction.
Offshore companies in UAE can be used for the following tasks:
- International trade – a trading company can be registered in the offshore area. An offshore company can receive calls directly from the client, however, the delivery of goods to this client will be made from the manufacturer or place of purchase. Profit arising from the difference between the purchase price and the selling price will then accumulate in the bank account of the IBC offshore.
- Dubai property ownership – there are many good reasons why IBC has become so popular for buying property in Dubai. The most obvious reason is considered to be the prevention of a rather complicated inheritance procedure.

Offshore companies may own shares in other companies in the UAE or abroad.
- Copyright, trademarks and patents – any kind of intellectual property right (copyright or trademark) can be registered on behalf of the IBC offshore. The company also has the right to buy or sell this type of rights.
