The words offshore business and offshore company have no precise legal, tax or general business meaning.

We use the words offshore business and offshore company as terms of definition in connection with matters such as the structuring of international business & family wealth management or tax planning.
Incorporation of an offshore company (or non-resident company) can be used for various purposes. One of the most common is the use of an offshore company as a holding company to hold interests in other companies in various jurisdictions, to hold trademarks, copyrights and other intellectual property rights, as well as to serve as the holding company for licensing of franchises. The income from taxable jurisdiction flowing to the offshore company (holding company) is not taxable.
