The first step to offshore company formation is to discuss the business goals and what exactly you wish to achieve by incorporating an offshore company in the UAE. This clarity will help us decide which offshore location is the perfect fit for your company as per your business needs and activities.

We will request you to provide us with the list of documents mentioned in the previous section. Those documents must be submitted to the registrar while submitting the application form for offshore company formation.

You need to provide us with at least three company names along with the preference. We need to provide the company name while filling out the application form. Suppose a company with the same name already exists. In that case, the authority will select the name with the second preferred name.

Technically, the minimum share capital is $1. Therefore, there are no restrictions on share capital. However, you still need to provide us with the capital details, the number of shares, and the value of each share for offshore company formation.
