What is the Difference Between an Onshore and IBC Offshore Company?

A UAE Offshore company is a great solution for people who want to purchase a property within the UAE but hold their assets outside the UAE. Both Onshore and Offshore companies offer their own set of great benefits. The main difference between the two is that you aren’t required to rent an office in the UAE with an offshore company. Here are some other differences between the two companies:

Onshore Company

  • Mainly for the location of domestic
  • An Onshore company is more expensive because it requires a local sponsor, physical office space, and government fees.
  • Applicable for VAT
  • Businesses in the onshore are not confidential

IBC Offshore Company

  • Can be expanded internationally.
  • Cost-effective because it requires less fees.
  • Not applicable for VAT.
  • These businesses are completely confidential.
