Why re-domicile to RAK ICC?

  • Companies could maintain existing legal status
  • Companies could preserve operational and banking history
  • Access to common law courts
  • Internationally compliant registry
  • Move from a jurisdiction in case of any changes in the rules and regulations in the country.

Strong Anti-Money Laundering Regulations

The UAE has worked hard to make detailed changes to laws governing the formation and operation of International Business Companies and remains committed to assisting companies in meeting these regulations based on UAE federal legislation developed to meet International AML/CFT standards outlined in the Financial Action Task Force recommendations (FATF).

RAK ICC can offer appropriate infrastructure and resources

To meet ESR in the UAE, entities must demonstrate that they meet the following:

  • Adequate physical assets, expenditure and employees exist in the UAE
  • Core income-generating activities (CIGA) undertaken in the UAE
  • Directed and managed in the UAE

The UAE provides plenty of physical offices or premises that are appropriate for your CIGAs. In addition to this, there is a large pool of experienced employees to choose from.

RAK ICC offers more than one solution

RAK ICC is at the forefront of International Business Company licencing in the region. There are three solutions to meet ESR for a company looking to redomicile:

  • Outsource its CIGAs – this can be done if the activities are performed in the UAE, giving access to employees and premises in the country.
  • Use the Premium product – this allows the licensee to enjoy the best of both worlds, by establishing with RAK ICC first and then the RAKEZ Freezone
  • Form a Branch – by starting a branch in the RAKEZ free zone, this would be treated as the same legal entity
  • RAK ICC keeps it simple and cost-effective.
