Some details of a company in Cyprus

 

Minimal formation requirements

Only one Director and one Shareholder required and this may be a natural person or a corporate body. The same person (company) can be both Director and Shareholder.

 

Time scale

Incorporation of Private Company Limited by Shares can take up to 6 weeks.

 

Taxation

Cyprus is not a tax free zone. A Cyprus company pays a 10% Corporate Tax on profits made by the Cyprus Company. However, one of the biggest benefits of Cyprus company compared to Offshore ones is that Cyprus company accesses double taxation treaties with more than 40 countries in the world.

 

The offshore regime in Cyprus has changed as part of the island's accession to the EU, and as a result of agreements with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Cyprus was excluded from the OECD's June 2000 'harmful' tax haven blacklist in return for pledging a commitment to amend its tax practices.

 

Also, there is no withholding tax on dividends paid to non-resident shareholders.

 

No trading limitations

Because Cyprus in no longet an offshore jurisdiction but rather a "low tax" zone, company registered in Cyprus does not have such limitations as International Business Corporation and therefore may, if required, trade in Cyprus itself to access the same taxation rate as other resident companies.

 

Registration aspects

In order to form a foreign-owned company, a bank reference and copy of the owner's passport is required for the registration. The bank reference must be issued by a bank included on the Central Bank of Cyprus's list of qualifying banks
