Why UAE

UAE is a popular choice to set-up a Company in non-EU liberal and confidential environment. Foreign investors are more likely to choose between simple offshore company RAK or Onshore Company in Free Trade Zone. Both options offer complete absence of taxes. If you plan to use Double Tax treaties or obtain resident visa, a Free Trade Zone Onshore Company is a great choice.
