Easy Offshore business setup in Dubai with the business experts at KWS Fintech Service

Offshore Business Setup in Dubai

“Offshore companies in UAE are also referred to as “paper” companies. An offshore entity is a wholly foreign-owned limited liability company. However, unlike an onshore company, it does not get a business or a trade license to carry out any business activity within the UAE. An Offshore company is known as a non-resident company because it can be owned by a person or an enterprise that lives anywhere in the world. One of the main reasons for Offshore business setup in Dubai is complete confidentiality over financial matters. If you think an offshore company is right for your business, let the experts at KWS FINTECH SERVICES help you through the business setup process.
