Dubai Offshore vs. RAK Offshore

Untangling Offshore Financial Centres in the UAE

Dubai-downtown-night-scene-with-city-lights-shutterstock 84292729The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has become an attractive option in which to conduct business, due to the Free Economic Zones that offer a number of advantages to individuals and companies seeking confidential and tax-free opportunities.

In the UAE, there are two offshore jurisdictions:

Ras Al Khaimah, commonly referred to as RAK Offshore, under the jurisdiction of Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA)

Dubai Offshore, under the supervision of the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA)

Thirty-eight Free Zones are offered by the seven Emirates in the UAE, with twenty-two in Dubai alone. Each zone is managed by a Free Trade Zone Authority that caters to a diverse range of business sectors and activities.

Tax Avoidance vs. Tax Evasion

Using Legal Means to Reduce Taxes

tax-avoidance If you own a business, you generally have the right to organize it in a way that ensures you pay no more taxes than necessary. This strategy, known as tax avoidance, involves using legal means to reduce taxes.

It is not the same thing as tax evasion, which is the practice of violating your country's laws and paying less than the minimum amount of taxes. Rather, tax avoidance is the practice of setting up your business in a way that ensures it will be taxed fairly by your country's government.
