Our services in Cyprus
We incorporate Cyprus companies from scratch and have stocks of ready-made companies, as well as pre-approved names.
Registered office services
We can make available a Cyprus registered office for your Cyprus incorporated company. This will offer you a permanent address for when you register your company.
We provide resident and non-resident directors for Cyprus companies.
With resident directors in Cyprus, a company will be able to benefit from Cyprus' fiscal regimes, as well as seek advantages under double taxation treaty provisions, where residence and place of effective management are key concepts. Use of Cyprus directors can also secure EU Treaty benefits for the company's participators.
Nominee shareholder facilities
We can provide resident corporate nominees to hold shares on behalf of individuals, companies or trusts, in order to preserve a degree of confidentiality.
Company secretarial services
We can provide a company secretary for your Cyprus company once it's been incorporated. Accurate and timely company filings and general governance are essential for any Cyprus company when dealing with its legal obligations in Cyprus with both the Cyprus Registrar of Companies and Cyprus Tax Office.
All electronic and paper correspondence received is reviewed in the strictest confidence, with arrangements being made to forward the corespondence to clients, if required.
Opening and Operation of Bank Accounts
Our excellent relationships with leading banks both within and outside of Cyprus mean we can open corporate bank accounts promptly on receipt of the necessary due diligence required by our banking partners.
Accounting / auditing
It is mandatory under Cyprus law that audited financial statements for your company are filed on an annual basis, by a local auditor. Working with numerous accounting and audit firms we are well placed to recommend one of our partners in accordance with the company's requirements.
Cyprus, being an EU Member State, has implemented the Sixth Directive 2006/112/EC and with certain activities being subject to VAT (19%). We are able to advise on taxable cross-border transactions and subsequently assist with VAT registration in Cyprus, if required.
