Income Taxation in Ras Al-Khaimah

The great thing about Ras Al-Khaimah is that it is a “no tax” emirate, meaning that there is zero corporate income tax, but also zero personal income tax for those working in Ras Al-Khaimah. Additionally, 100% foreign ownership is allowed, which means that it’s a good place to both do business and accumulate assets.

You don’t have to pay inheritance tax and offshore companies do not have to pay tax on profits. The government has also made it extremely attractive for people who seek to start new companies, and there is no restriction on the maximum number of shareholders you can have.
