The term Offshore Company or Offshore Corporation is used in at least two distinct and different ways. An offshore company may be a reference to a corporation or (sometimes) other type of legal entity which is incorporated or registered in an offshore financial center or “tax haven” a company or corporate group (or sometimes a division thereof) which engages in off shoring manufacturing or business services.

Alternative Use:
The alternative use of the phrase offshore company, being a business or part of a business which uses off shoring as part of its business process, is less common, and is often used as a lazy shorthand way of saying that the relevant business engages in off shoring.

Especially because you avoid the burdensome process of having the off shore incorporation company documents attested by various embassies and Ministries of Foreign Affairs.
