RAK Investment Authority (RAKIA)[indeed_popups id=2]
RAKIA Offshore was established by the Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA), to address the global demand for a safe, secure and discrete jurisdiction for the incorporation of International Business Companies (IBCs), while raising the profile of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah as a premier destination for investment.
A crucial feature of RAKIA Offshore is that it offers complete privacy and confidentiality through a closed book register; owners of IBCs are kept confidential, ensuring a highly advantageous business environment for both individual and corporate investors. RAKIA is not a dependent or 'overseas' territory of another country and as such it is not sharing or reporting information to any overseas 'principal' or organization. Ras Al Khaimah is not subject to the EU Savings Tax Directive, unlike some other offshore tax havens related to the EU member states.
