It depends on your audience. Apparently some of you are familiar with this phrase. If you used it with me, I would have no idea what you meant.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
1. offshore = moving away from the shore;
An offshore wind/ tide/ current.
2. Situated in the sea, away from the shore:
An offshore oilfield.
3. Foreign, especially of investments, called offshore funds, in companies especially offshore banks based in some self-governing islands tax havens, such as the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas
