    offshore

    offshore = (of companies and banks) based in a different country with advantageous tax rules.


    Please explain (of companies and banks).
    I think :
    Some words before `of' could help me to understand this.

    Re: offshore

    'Of' means that the term 'offshore' is used in reference to companies and banks with this meaning. A ship can be offshore, but the meaning is different.
