Setting up a company in Cyprus

Открытие компании на Кипре. Opening of a company in Cyprus

Setting up a company in Cyprus has been a serious business topic for many years, as the country is an official offshore zone of the European Union and at the same time offers the most loyal European tax conditions and clear legal requirements. There is no strict financial control and interference with confidential materials by the government.

A company developing in such an environment receives favourable conditions for scaling and successful business management. In addition, it is not necessary to become a resident of Cyprus for business management, as there is a type of organization, which may be administered from abroad. However, accounting and financial reporting must be prepared early. After registering a company, you need to open a bank account in Cyprus.

Setting up a Cyprus company

Setting up a company in Cyprus as of now is quite simple, as the procedure does not require a personal presence.

  • The island country is not on any blacklist of offshore jurisdictions.
  • The Cyprus VAT number allows to freely cooperate with any EU country.
