The UAE offshore company’s legal address will be the registered agent’s address (in Dubai if you use the services of our agent). A RAK offshore company does not have the right to rent an office in the UAE.

When choosing a name for your company, keep a few things in mind:

  •  It should not repeat the name of a previously registered company.
  • It must be in English.
  • Your company name must end with the word Limited or LTD abbreviation.
