When investing overseas, the tax implications of buying, owning and selling properties are of
primary importance, but they can also be confusing due to inheritance tax, capital gains tax, or
the vagaries of forced heirship. In the UAE, the Freehold Property Ownership Law allowing non-
UAE nationals to own properties, has led to a continued boom in the real estate market.
Overseas buyers account for a large proportion of properties transactions in Dubai as well as in
the other Emirates.
By owning real estate through a company, real estate investors better protect their asset than if
the property is owned individually. Trinity Group strongly advises that serious consideration be
given to purchasing property via a corporate structure.
