Background to Dubai Company Registration

Dubai offshore company formation/registration

A1 Global Formations is able to incorporate a Dubai offshore company (Ras Al Khaimah International Company or Jebel Ali Free Zone). The process usually takes up to five days.

Offshore company banking in Dubai

A1 Global Formations saves you time and hassle by working closely with a number of banks, including Barclays, Standard Chartered and ADCB in UAE, so we can incorporate Dubai companies with a choice of offshore bank accounts.

Anonymity and disclosure in a Dubai offshore company

A Dubai registered company provides very good privacy. With a Ras Al Khaimah International Company (RAKIC) formation there is no register of directors or shareholders, which maintains total anonymity. The company however must have at least one shareholder and one director to comply with the regulations in the Free Trade Zone. Corporate shareholders are also permitted.

The total anonymity offered by a Dubai offshore company formation means a Dubai offshore company registration is a popular choice in asset protection schemes. The dobule tax treaty does mean however overseas tax authorities can use any exchange of information provisions to request information from the Dubai tax authorities.

To be guaranteed to be free from Dubai taxes for 50 years, many businesses and in particular, e-commerce businesses, form a British Virgin Islands or Panama offshore company and then register it in one of the free trade zones. The Dubai Internet City (DIC) for example is a free trade zone specifically for ecommerce business. This technique also offers asset protection since a good offshore jurisdiction would ensure there would be no disclosure of shareholders and disclosure of directors may potentially be limited to just nominee directors.

Shares in a Dubai offshore company formation

For a Ras Al Khaimah International Company (RAKIC), the minimum share capital is AED1,000. Share capital must be denominated in UAE Dirhams (AED) divided into shares of AED1,000 each. If you wish, with a Dubai offshore company formation you can create different classes of shares in one or more series having their own rights, privileges, conditions and restrictions. Bearer shares are permitted but a licensed registered agent must hold the details of the company’s beneficial owners.

Tax benefits of a Dubai offshore company formation

For UK investors looking to capitalise on a booming property market or earn a tax-free salary, Dubai has rapidly increased in popularity. Dubai offers individuals:

  • No income tax
  • No capital gains tax
  • No inheritance tax
  • No sales tax

Tax liability of a Dubai offshore company

In comparison to other tax haven countries, Dubai performs well as a location for an offshore company registration. Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) so it has approximately forty-five tax treaties, which allow Dubai companies reduced withholding taxes on dividends and restricting tax overseas. Dubai is also on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation Development (OECD) white list for its exchange of information treaties.
